quote by Iyanla Vanzant: You can accept or reject the way you are treated by other people. But until you heal the wounds of your past, you are going to bleed. with background image: Bryce Canyon National Park Sunrise Point at Utah
Background Photo: Zhanjiang Chen

You can accept or reject the way you are treated by other people. But until you heal the wounds of your past, you are going to bleed.

--Iyanla Vanzant

Longer Version:

You can accept or reject the way you are treated by other people, but until you heal the wounds of your past, you will continue to bleed. You can bandage the bleeding with food, with alcohol, with drugs, with work, with cigarettes, with sex, but eventually, it will all ooze through and stain your life. You must find the strength to open the wounds, stick your hands inside, pull out the core of the pain that is holding you in your past, the memories, and make peace with them.
