Hi All,

I was drawn to this group because I host a blog called The Healing Wall that features stories of transformation. 

If you have one you would like to share, please let me know. I get about 750-1000 views per blog.

"The Healing Wall is a project designed to share stories of transformation. These are rare stones in our society. We are not good at change, even though it is the one constant. I've heard at least 85% of alcoholics never get sober. The majority of people with heart problems continue an unhealthy diet. Most people with mental illness medicate for life. People with anger problems die mad. Most of us hang on desperately to our deepest wounds. But, every once in a blue moon, something shifts. Once in a great while, a small miracle occurs and a cocoon opens revealing a completely transformed creature. These are the stories I want to mine for wisdom on The Healing Wall."

Anatomy of a breakdown. A Million Tears.

What I have found is that forgiving my mother for looking the other way as my father did his thing is more difficult than I expected. This series is taking a serious toll on me but I realize how important it is to my healing and recovery from PTSD and major depression. 

Well, life got in the way but I'm still posting on 30 days of forgiveness. Of course, I've figured out it's 30 days that won't be in a row. Gotta cut myself some slack.This has been a very difficult series and I am just now scratching the surface in exploring what it means to forgive so I can heal well. 

Peer review and feedback means so much to me so comment away. Nevertheless, here are the links.:

Day One: Pushing past the pain,
Day Two: Stop feeling anger,
Day Three: Stop requirement payment,
Day Four: Give up resentment,
Day Five: Grant a pardon,
Day Six: Release,
Day Seven: Yield,
Day Eight: Sacrifice,
Day Nine: Ascribe,
Day 10: Surrender,
Day 11: No blame, no shame,
Day 12: Awareness,
Day 13: Acceptance,
Day 14: Action,

I'm back! I'm kicking things off on my newly redesigned WordPress blog with a 30-day series on forgiveness. Big developments have happened over the last several months and I just can't keep it to myself any longer.

Look forward to your feedback. Thanks in advance!

Suicide: Breaking Through

Today marks the seventh anniversary of my husband's funeral AND my cousin's suicide. I've learned the reason for suicide began long before my first attempt and, as it turns out, also is true for my cousin.

I spent 6 years crocheting a beautiful blanket after my second suicide attempt and learned what love is.

Comment by Emiliana Martín on March 4, 2013 at 10:52am

Suicide note: Check. Pills: Check. Goodbye cruel world.

This is part two of my three-part series on suicide. This time we visit my second attempt and how deep into the abyss I had fallen before getting back up.
