We Will Heal

We Will Heal

From Sperlisha Ayeni

I'd like to create care packages, for women grieving a lost newborn or miscarriage, domestic violence, and affected by breast cancer. We are not alone and there is someone who cares.

Tonight, I got caught in a very sad memory.  I messaged a friend to just say thank you for being on the other side of the phone. Regardless of how long it's been, at a certain time of the year, I fall into a depression. Memories I have tried to suppress always return to me unexpectedly. Not completely realizing what is going on I began to isolate, not completely aware of why but I become so sad inside. Recently I've noticed at this time of year my heart breaks all over again, from the loses I have suffered.

My angel babies, a piece of myself that I lost by abuse, and the suffering of loved ones from breast cancer.  I know that I am not alone. I know that other beautifully made women suffer the same, but sometimes it helps to have acknowledgment, a hug, something that speaks, "Hey I know, you're hurting but, We Will Heal." Healing is a coping process that is never really complete because the heartache and pain actually never goes away.

I'm an encourager, I hurt but I'm stronger than I think sometimes.  Encouraging others makes me more able to continue to cope with my heartache, as encouragement I'd to send care packages to the women affected by these situations. Within these packages, I'd like to write personal letters to express my personal emotions because, although it hurts, We Will Heal.

In memory of Jamilah Atuanya (Beauty Unexpected)
