One shot to your heart without breaking your skin
No one has the power to hurt you like your kin
Kept it inside, didn't tell no one else
Didn't even wanna admit it to yourself
And now your chest burns and your back aches
From 15 years of holding the pain
And now you only have yourself to blame
If you continue to live this way
Get it together
You wanna heal your bodyYou have to heal your heart - India Arie
What is inside manifests itself on the outside
I have learnt that our bodies give us signs- the aches, the pains, the tummy tumbles, even the common cold, we pay attention to the symtoms and seldom the cause
So it's pills, tablets, ointments, balms, you name it. The symptoms go away for a bit and then when triggered they return.
My friend and I have this thing where we say "go inside" when we are triggered or feel each other is
I am now extending it to focusing on what you are holding inside that you haven't dealt with- fee.deal.heal- for whatever reason
Trust me, it will manifest itself in some part of your daily funtion and affect your health and daily life!
