If you had to guess what the very first step to freedom is, what would you guess? Maybe you would first ask, “freedom from what?” Fair enough. The freedom I am talking about is freedom from the hurt you are holding onto. Freedom from the internal chains that keep weighing you down. Okay, so now that you know that, what would you guess? What is the very first step towards freedom?
I used to believe that the first step towards freedom from all the hurt I was holding onto from relational heartbreak was to receive healing. Although that is a huge part of being set free, there are a few steps before you can even make it to the healing part.
Have you ever watched the Disney Princess movie, Beauty and the Beast? Growing up, that was always one of my favorite princess movies. Mainly because Belle, one of the main characters, was beautiful. But she wasn’t just beautiful on the outside, she was beautiful from the inside out. She had a beautiful heart and I looked up to her.
As I grew older, I continued to love watching Belle help transform the Beast from the inside out. What I noticed throughout the years of watching this classic Disney movie was that the Beast was actually hurting on the inside and because He was too prideful to admit that he was hurting, he turned into a beast. It wasn’t until Belle came into the picture that she slowly helped him overcome his pride and shame so that he could be healed and ultimately transformed from the inside out.
But the key part to the Beast’s full transformation was the first step he took. The first step he took allowed him to step into healing and eventually a full transformation. That first step was having the courage to let down his guard, put his pride aside, and admit his heart was hurting.
It wasn’t until he was able to take this first step that he was then able to experience full healing and life transformation from the inside out.
The first step to freedom is to admit that you are hurting on the inside. This takes courage and putting aside your pride, but it is the only way to step into complete freedom. Being able to admit that you are holding onto hurt from relational heartbreak is a HUGE step towards healing, wholeness, and life transformation.
When you are able to admit this, you are already on the path to being able to see more clearly. Taking the step to heal from the hurt you are holding onto allows you to transform your entire life: your mind, your health, your relationships, your future, and so much more! So today, will you have the courage to take the first step towards life transformation and admit it?
