"Go outside
and let your breath
be stolen away.

Find the forests,
seek the seas,
on the mountains
mist covered
from morning.

We are nurtured
by nature, born
for the wild places;
we’ve no business
in cities, in buildings
taller than trees
can grow.
Go outside,
and begin living

Feeling guilt
is not the same as
being guilty.

Guilt is a feeling in the body,
until you identify with it,
and it attaches to the β€œI Am”,
and it becomes β€œI am guilty”.
β€œI am the guilty one”.

Yes, sometimes we have spoken or acted out of unconsciousness and hurt others.
Yes, sometimes we have not been as skilful or as aware or as kind as we could have been.
Sometimes we have not acted from our integrity.
Sometimes we have not lived up to our potential.

And guilt comes to remind us of our exquisite imperfection.
Not to punish us, but to remind us.
So we can learn. Grow. Make amends. Put things back into balance. Say sorry. Open our hearts. Find a deeper sense of self-love. Heal.

Other times, guilt arises as an old bodily memory.
An old sense of β€œI did something BAD”.
A primal dread. A sense of impending doom.
We find ourselves waiting to be punished.
To be killed, abandoned, shamed, publicly ridiculed.
To be forgotten and left to die.

It is an old trauma that longs for love!
Be aware of it when it arises!
Give it permission to live.
And know it is just a feeling, not a fact.
It is voices in the head, and sensations in the body.
It is a child’s terror.

Guilt will control you until you can give it the love it longs for.
Until you can turn towards it with curiosity.
Breathe into it. Drench it with understanding.
And empathy. Hold it like a frightened child.
In the safety of Presence.

You are not guilty,
even though you feel this guilt now.

You are the room for this guilt,
its sanctuary, its home.
Its master, not its slave.
Its loving parent, its place of rest.

We all make mistakes sometimes
But we are not mistakes, ever.

I was afraid of being alone, until I learned to love myself.

I was afraid of failing, until I realized that I only fail if I don't try.

I was afraid of what people would think of me, until I realized they would think of me anyway.

I was afraid of rejection, until I understood that even when this happened my faith in myself would be greater.

I was afraid of pain, until I learned that pain is relative and I decide if I want to feel it or get stronger.

I was afraid of the truth, until I discovered that the truths are what make me understand many things

I was afraid of death, until I learned it's not the end, but rather the beginning.

I was afraid of hate, until I realized it's nothing but ignorance.

I was afraid of the ridiculous, until I learned to laugh at myself and that this this is healthy.

I feared growing old until I realized I gained wisdom day by day.

I was afraid of the past, until I realized that through the past I learned to get where I am.

I was afraid of the dark, until in it I discovered my inner light

I was afraid of change, until I saw that even the most beautiful butterfly needed a metamorphosis before flying.

I was afraid of wounds until the eagle showed me that some wounds are necessary to grow.

I was afraid no one would like me... until i learned to love myself and since then i understood.. how easy it is to be happy.

Pathways to Better Days - NL

"Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much." – Helen Keller

Pathways to Better Days is a PTSD Peer Support Group founded in June of 2019 that is held every Tuesday night from 6:30 to 9 at The Lantern in St. John’s, Newfoundland. We welcome all people struggling with mental health adversities as well as supporters who are focused on understanding their friends and loved ones.

We are all peers; we sit as equals and as one. Some of us have lived experiences with PTSD and other mental health illnesses while others are here as supporters for loved ones and friends. Pathways to Better Days is a safe place where we focus on the positive side of healing through trauma and learning to be better listeners in the process.

Our names and any discussions are personal and confidential, to be kept within our meetings only. As part of Pathways to Better Days, each of us understands that our topics heavily influence what we and others feel.
