Assignment #1 You’ll need a pad of paper and a pen for this!
Writing is such a cathartic experience! Unlike talk therapy where sometimes all you come away with is, do I feel better or worse, writing things down so you can read it over and over again, gives you a tangible tool to work with. You can’t deny you felt something because you were embarrassed or ashamed of your feelings when it’s right there on the paper in front of you. It is your truth, that’s all. Writing is a safe place to lay your raw emotions out into the open so you can begin exploring the path towards healing!
With that said, it’s Sunday today, a day of rest, a day for reflection. I’d like you to take a few moments to write down the biggest challenge you are facing! Write down why you see it as a challenge and then write down what actions you have taken to get through it? If you haven’t taken any action to change it, ask yourself what’s stopping you from doing something, anything, to move past it, and write that down too!
