‘Healing does not mean the pain stops existing. It means the pain doesn’t control your life anymore’ Omoni Oboli (The Stars Are Ageless) It’s been one week and I’ve been through it all. I’ve been emotionally, psychologically, physically, so violently ill to the point that I’ve puked out bile.
I’ve barely slept in this one week and I’m sure many have felt it or are feeling this way but it’s time for healing. I’ve had to make a conscious decision to start the healing process because staying in this state just triggers more panic and anxiety attacks (I literally felt like I was dying many times)
So I’m starting my healing process and I advice you all to because we are useless to humanity in this state. What we all experienced is very insane and most of us will suffer from ptsd. Right now, self preservation is key. Special thanks to @feladurotoye for all the many sessions. Please talk to someone if you feel overwhelmed. It’s important.
My condolences to everyone who’s dealing with the loss of a loved one right now (aren’t we all? Our brothers and sisters died) God will heal us all. Weeping may endure for a night but joy comes in the morning. The sun will shine again. To all who lost property and livelihood to looters. God sees. He will restore 7 fold! Just watch and see him give you double for your trouble!
To everyone who’s sent messages, emails, tried to call (my phones are off. I’m sorry) I will do my best to respond. You people are amazing. I will bounce back better and stronger! We all will! Shaken but not broken! We will get the Nigeria of our dreams 🇳🇬 I love you all so much 💚
