Some people have experienced horrendous situations during their childhood. In many cases, they continue to relive the memory repeatedly. They become prisoners of their past. As others from their past move on in life, they remain at a standstill. If they manage to move forward a step or two, the demons of their past resurface pulling them back. Their behavior towards self and others is controlled by their inner demons. The only way to survive and free oneself from such demons is to step out of the past and enter the present.
Some people are quick to say, “It is easier said than done. It is difficult to forget.” Nothing in life is unachievable. It is not about forgetting; it is about forgiving and giving yourself permission to let go. You possess the key to the cell in which you are a prisoner. All you need to do is unlock the door and set yourself free. It is the first step. After that, it becomes easier to heal your inner child.
Turn the negative into a positive. By helping yourself, you can help others who are facing or have faced similar experiences. God has chosen you to heal some of the wounds of the world.
