Hey there, diary. It's been a while since I've taken the time to sit down and reflect on everything that has happened in my life as Jean Gray, an X-Man with incredible powers. Today, I want to talk about something that is near and dear to my heart - confronting past traumas and building resilience.

The Weight of the Past

Being an X-Man comes with its own set of challenges. We are constantly faced with danger, threats, and missions that push us to our limits. But what many people don't realize is that we also carry the weight of our past experiences with us every day.

For me personally, my past is filled with moments of loss, betrayal, and pain. From losing loved ones to facing dark forces within myself, each experience has left a mark on my soul. These memories can be overwhelming at times, threatening to consume me if I let them.

Facing the Darkness Within

As someone who possesses telepathic abilities, I am constantly bombarded by thoughts and emotions from those around me. This constant influx of information can make it difficult for me to distinguish between what belongs to others and what belongs to myself.

But one thing I have learned over the years is that in order to confront these past traumas head-on; I must first face the darkness within myself. By acknowledging my own fears; doubts; insecurities; anger – whatever it may be –I am ableto take control of these emotions insteadof letting them controlme.
