Question  Patience and the Healing Process
We get very impatient with ourselves about our healing process. We want to heal, and we want to heal now.

Of course, instantaneous (or even speedy) healing isn't possible, and we know this intellectually. But we still want it, for a number of reasons. First of all, there are those of us who experience life as children, or at least as older folks with childlike feelings. And we haven't resolved those feelings.

Secondly, we want the pain to stop. Thirdly, we want as much time as possible on this earth living a life free of this pain. So the longer it takes us to heal, the smaller a percentage of our life will be (relatively) pain-free.

How do you deal with experiencing impatience in your healing process? Have you gained any insight as to what causes you to experience difficulty? What healthy coping strategies do you have?

We blog, we post in forums, and we go to T. Our biggest challenge is the tendency to isolate excessively. But we try to look for ways to do things differently, even in the smallest ways, when we come to terms with a belief or an approach that hasn't worked for us. We know that we cannot keep indulging in the same unhelpful behaviors while expecting different results.

It takes time to change and grow. We know that we are often impatient, and we try to accept this part of our nature, while at the same time not using it as an excuse. One step at a time, one moment at a time.

Charity, Mary, Allegra, and others
