A short pause and gentle reminder. Our wounded parts will seek love in the most unlovable ways. True healing comes not from learning to transcend or get beyond them, but from learning how to invite them to sit alongside us - to gently turn toward them, meeting them with compassion and acceptance, and offering them the medicine of our wise presence. Healing is always possible.
