Healing is a journey, not a destination.
As I have healed, grown, and evolved over the years, one fact remains: sometimes I bump into old things that I thought were healed (scarred over, if you will). Those things present themselves again and the new version of me gets to experience that and process it with the toolkit I have built over time.
There isn’t a set of rules on how my journey looks versus someone else’s… it is my own journey and someone else’s journey is their own.
If you are working through stuff… I encourage you to be gentle with yourself wherever you are in the journey and acknowledge that there is no expiration on the process of healing.
