How a sea of emptiness turned into a journey to fill my soul

#MentalHealthMonday⁠⁠It's funny that what seemed like a sea of emptiness a few years ago was instead a journey to fill my soul in ways I never would have imagined.⁠⁠Let me explain...⁠⁠When we first moved to Maui almost five years ago, I left behind all my close friends and family.

⁠⁠It’s funny that what seemed like a sea of emptiness a few years ago was instead a journey to fill my soul in ways I never would have imagined.⁠⁠

Let me explain…⁠⁠

When we first moved to Maui almost five years ago, I left behind all my close friends and family. The loneliness was unbearable, and I kept asking God why life had brought me here. ⁠⁠

Turns out, this is exactly where I was supposed to be. ⁠⁠

I needed the silence, the unbusyness, the isolation, so that I could return home to myself. The self I’d run away from for decades.⁠⁠

With the quiet enveloping me, I was forced to look inward. And to dig deep. Deeper than I knew was possible.⁠⁠

The work I’ve done in therapy here has been harrowing, enlightening, and life-changing. ⁠⁠

I’m figuring out:⁠⁠

  • That I can heal from trauma (with a lot of excruciating work and professional guidance).⁠⁠
  • How to let my feelings surface, really feel them, and process them… instead of shoving them down and burying them.⁠⁠
  • How to find my voice, and speak my mind. ⁠⁠
  • To learn to trust my intuition.⁠⁠
  • How to finally stand up for myself. ⁠⁠

I’m so proud of how far I’ve come, and how much I’ve learned and grown. I’m closer to myself than I’ve ever been before.⁠⁠

Turns out, I was never alone after all.⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠
