Partner’s Unconditional Support Heals

I have been dealing with a health concern ever since. Thankfully, I have an amazing partner who not only helped me fight, but also helped me deal with everything I was hiding from.

I recognize that my trauma is mine and not her responsibility, but she was very supportive of what I needed in the moment and reminds me to communicate what I need if I am overwhelmed. So I’ll say, “Honey, there’s too much noise/people/smells/everything,” or if I’m panicking, she asks what I need and reminds me she can’t help if she doesn’t know. If I can’t communicate, she starts with my water bottle, then my phone, and asks if I need food.

It was just so fulfilling to be loved unconditionally without asking for it. A partner that I have, despite challenging and tough times, is more than I could ask for.

Mother’s Love Confronts Addiction

When I was 45 and a thriving entrepreneur running a $4 million-a-year business, I suddenly found out that my 21-year-old son was on hard drugs. I immediately went into fight mode to try and get him proper help. I was not only shocked but also saddened over my part in this; as a mother, I should have seen the signs.

I was forced to get him put in jail and then on to rehab. I went to court and testified about how bad things were, and since he was no longer a minor, I had to get power of attorney to make decisions for him. This almost killed me as a mother. He came into the courtroom one day in shackles, a 6’2″ boy weighing 96 lbs; I mentally collapsed.

After court, I stopped at a place I’d bought to flip and resell; renovators were there. One lady who helped them always sang what I think were Christian-based Oprah songs. She sounded like she needed an orchestra echoing off the walls of this old mansion.

After leaving that terrible courtroom, I went inside to take a look, and she said, “You need a hug.” She was a stranger to me, but that warm heart and kindness instantly made me break down and bare my soul. That was better healing than any therapist has ever given me.

Partner’s Acceptance Promotes Emotional Healing

I met my partner a little over a decade ago, and she’s helped me heal my emotional trauma. I went to therapy first and still do, so that I can work on underlying issues. But being with someone who loves and accepts me exactly as I am grants me the ease to heal. I felt like I was not in survival mode anymore.

I started caring for myself better. I started getting out more and drinking less. On my days off, I would walk for miles and miles and take myself out for lunch and read in the park. I called it ‘taking myself out on dates.’ Then I met my now wife, who held my hand the rest of the way. I wouldn’t say my emotional trauma is totally healed, particularly. But rather, I have two people to hold my hand through it: her hand, and my own.

Friendship’s Love Mends a Broken Heart

Indeed, one of my best friends once had a heartbreaking breakup. They were crushed, and finding footing again was anything but easy. As friends, we stood beside them with love, sympathy, and compassion. We spent hours and hours simply showing our presence, listening, and providing words of hope.

Gradually, with the support of the outpouring of love and solidarity, they could begin to heal their broken hearts again. It was a reminder of love’s healing force, which gives comfort in darkness and the light to go on. In that incident, we all became closer friends and emphasized the importance of being there for each other during tough times.
