Serenely; The Healing VL. 1 is a poetic collective made of four chapters that explore the essence of internal healing. Acceptance is the first step that introduces the great challenges of facing trauma. Thus, the importance of accepting pain. Grief, is a more complex collection of reasons behind the importance of being vulnerable. It subjects pain to be a deep part of strength and provides quality to vulnerability. Recovery explores necessary steps that follow grievance of a certain pain. It’s a demonstration of forgiveness to whatever’s harmed the individual but also a translation of self-forgiveness as part of making ease with being a participant of the trauma. The last chapter entitled Restart, is a composition of a clean slate. Healing from anything consists of not limiting yourself from completely disassociating with a genre of people or things that caused your certain trauma. Serenely; The Healing VL. 1 is not a guarantee to immunity of pain but rather a matter of having control over the pain. You aren’t to be consumed by what pains you, let your pain be consumed by you instead.
