1. Thank you for the post. I think that the part about removing inner thorns can be closely connected to my post about mental afflictions and the aversion to face things that are difficult for us. We avoid the hard looks in the mirror, we run away from conversations with should have, and avoid facing the truth, hiding behind things we call “being busy”. But in order to grow and become a better human being we definitely have to take a hard look and learn how to best process the things that hurt us, not closing off from experiences that can bring us joy and grow us.

    • Yes yes and yes!! The part about removing inner thorns was one of my favorite parts, too. And you’re right– most people avoid things that are difficult, which makes it impossible to grow and become a better person. Thanks so much for your comment; I’m glad you got something out of Millie’s post!

  2. Thank you so much for posting this. It is so important to face the negativity & pain instead of just pretending it doesn’t bother you. It is the only way to heal.


    • Hey Stephanie, thanks so much for your comment! You’re right– facing the pain is the tough move, but the only way to heal and then be able to grow as a person, too!

  3. Funny how this post came to me at a time when I so needed it. Funny how things in life work out that way. Recently I removed a lot of thorns in the idea of family members who are abusive. I have felt guilt over it. I see now they were the thorns….

    • They always do, don’t they?! I’m so glad you’re removing thorns and becoming a healthier person. Thanks for your comment, and sending lots of love and light your way! <3

  4. Good post. I just wrote something similar because life wasn’t going so well and acknowledging and feeling the pain is important to do. it’s the wallowing in it for too long that will bring you down.

    • Thanks Carrie! Great minds think alike 🙂 You’re absolutely right. Wallowing a little might be good because acknowledging your pain is healthy, but at the same time, it can easily become too much and end up bringing you down. Hope you’re in a better place after writing about it!

  5. I love this! It’s so important that we acknowledge our emotions, even the negative ones, and work through them. Bottling things up is never good for our health! 💖

  6. Such a great read! It’s so true, we cannot begin to heal and move past whatever has caused us the pain until we’re prepared to face it head on and accept it’s happened. Then we can begin to switch our mindset from negative to one of growth, to learn from the experience and start picking ourselves back up again. Thanks for sharing!
