Healing Lights by Nadia Gerassimenko
It was 2010 and my heart was shattered, my body ablaze, my soul lost. I didn’t know who I was anymore, the child within me slipping away, only a fragmented ‘I’ remained. Mentally I was suffering from trauma from a former abusive relationship, physically from initial symptoms of Lyme Disease—only in retrospect did I realize that. My being didn’t know how to cope. I didn’t understand how I could suffer so much from a break up when others seemed to carry on so painlessly, so effortlessly, if not expressing to my face, then with their eyes that I should get over my pain already. I didn’t understand how and why every fiber of my being was on fire, and nothing could put it out. There were fleeting moments of freedom and peace, at least I had that.
