Why It Is Important For The Unhealed Soul To Heal

The unhealed soul can be recognised by the lives they live and by the stories they tell. Could you be one of those souls whom happen to be walking around unhealed? Are you living a life free from the dark shadows of the past and fully aware that the circumstances of your life belong to you? Or are the stories of your life full of pain and a discussion point for all that is going wrong in your life?

Every one of us tells stories. Those stories have within them the power to empower or disempower others. As we examine the contents of our stories think for a moment on the objectives of telling the story. You see sometimes unknowingly we feel the urge to give people details to a story just so they can offer us some sympathy. Sometimes its necessary to discuss something that is bothering us, but with a trusted person, someone who can be objective; however we ought to recognise if we are one of those persons who always has several stories to tell about what has happened to us. If this fits something you may be experiencing you may want to consider that in some areas of your life healing is needed.

It’s been said that hurting people hurt people. Observing a victim is painful, but it is even more painful when they can’t see a way out of the pain. Consider this for a moment, any area of your life that is unwell, is not functioning, as it should, with vitality and vibrancy. In other words the stories you share and your reasons for not living a life of vibrancy and vitality may be causing harm to those around you. Are you still blaming others for the reasons why your life is not how you would like it? Worst still are you sharing that information with your children? Some people in the name of protecting their children tell stories to their children that are full of judgements, pain and things that the child has no power to change. This causes great harm to the children because it tells them to bear the pain of a problem that is not theirs to solve. Yet this is what happens when we are unhealed in certain areas of our lives. We live limitations! We complain! We judge! We hate! We tell one-sided stories! We expect whomever we tell to live our pain with us! We place expectations on others not really understanding that we are disempowering ourselves at the same time, not to mention destroying a relationship.

This may be you and if it is I encourage you to not ask others to share a pain that you may be unwilling to fix. If you look to heal from your failures, your lack of faith in yourself, your hatred for others, your pain and resentments you will automatically teach others to do so by example. They will become empowered by seeing you overcome. If you are the unhealed soul, do whatever you can to heal yourself. Get help because somewhere, someone is affected by your not being healed. Let those you love and care for know and understand that your pains have nothing to do with them. Let them know that the stories you tell are just one side of the story and it would be better for them if they understood that fully by not taking on your pain. If you know someone who is struggling with this, encourage them and let them know that by overcoming their pains, they will have a different story to tell, one that leaves a good inheritance for those they leave behind. Encourage those individuals that they have the power to change by letting go of the pain and learning to heal. Together we can all do our part by empowering the next generation by loving them enough to heal from our hurts and to tell stories that speak of overcoming.

Our future as a society, country and world depends on the stories we share with children. Let’s share stories that lift them, encourage them and fill them with the faith that they too can overcome anything that comes their way.
