Its been daunting thinking I need some big cathartic event to feel better. I think the theology around "deliverance" played a part. Not that there's something wrong with praying for "breakthroughs" or having revivals. But at least for my youth and college church experiences, big emphasis is placed on special event emotional experiences when in reality life is long and healing more often happens in the little ways over the course of years. Compounding like you said.

Love this! Over the last few years I think about what are the daily, small things I can do to "catch my breath" after becoming a parent during the pandemic and dealing with a lot of loss. What you wrote deeply resonates with me!
