How to Get a Piece of Peace in Your Life

Speaking Your Peace

There are times that we have things deep in our minds or deep in our past, and we don't realize how these thoughts actually affect our present day situations. We sometimes think that with more time, the effects automatically lessen, the wounds finally heal, and we can move on.

Sometimes we can't move on if we've never allowed these thoughts to be witnessed. Witnessing is many times the way to heal.

You can write a letter that is never sent. You can burn it or tear it up when you're done. Many of you already post the deepest things about you in your own blogs and have experienced what it is like for others to comment.

If there is something you have always wanted to post anonymously, or on a site specifically meant for this purpose, visit my other site,
Speaking Your Peace. Post a confession, a pain, a dreaded fear, or a secret. Make a formal request for the type of feedback you need. You are among peers, friends, and strangers who will offer you the best comfort, support, and advice. Healing happens in the company of others.

You can also visit PostSecret to mail in an anonymous secret on a postcard. However, at this site, there are no opportunities to receive feedback. It is worth visiting to see what others have done. Perhaps simply relating to someone else's secret will be healing enough.

Try either and see what happens.
