Burning resentments: Life Changes hosts healing session for clients
RENO, Nev. (KOLO) -This is one of the most restorative activities, our Pillar Partner Life Changes puts on for its clients, it’s called a resentment burn.
“Every day is a battle, but I just wake up and try to do my best, Krista Griener explains. She knows the antagonizing fury that comes with resentment, because she’s been battling it within her relationship with her mother, as she details, “I’ve just always felt like she put drugs and money before us kids and I’ve been trying to develop a relationship with her but she’s kind of my biggest trigger, so there’s a barrier there.”
So, she showed up to one of the Life Changes properties that houses clients to participate. Griener has been to prison twice but just finished her application for TMCC, letting her poor choices of the past…fly away like ashes.
“I’ve been on the streets, running and gunning, I’ve done all that and it’s just restless, you get tired and once you really commit to it and you really want it, you know, it’s worth it in the end because you don’t have to look over your shoulder anymore and you live a happy life, Jordan Coleman says. He’s been employed as a House Manager with the non-profit for three years. But he knows the struggles of addiction, all too well, adding, “We resent a lot of things from our childhood, everyone’s got a different story but something I had to let go was, I had to step it up and be a man, i had to quit resenting myself, I had to quit making excuses. It’s not an easy life, it’s not an easy world to live in and we all look at that as an escape and as an excuse.”
This story isn’t about a call for services or donations, although your generosity always comes in handy to continue the mission of helping men and women leave their pasts of sex trafficking, incarceration, homelessness, or other circumstances. This report is about looking within…healing past or present traumas and pursuing your highest potential.
“We get younger guys in the program too and it gives me an opportunity to show them that you now, you don’t have to go back out there and even at a young age you can get it together and then a lot of older guys look up to me too to help figure this stuff out so it’s a blessing for sure,” Coleman tells KOLO 8.
The flames take it all away. This is a reminder that anytime is a wonderful time to change your life for the better.
