might sound stupid, but it works for me


Man, the mirror again! I used to hate looking at myself in the mirror because I thought all I was seeing was the boy who did whatever the abuser wanted. But now I think back and I realize that what I was seeing was a frightened mixed-up boy who was worth as much as any other kid.

Sometime sooner than you think you will see the same thing, bro. You will be amazed at all you have to offer others and all the wonderful things you have to live for. You will like yourself again because there's a lot there to like.

Much love,
Larry

appreciate the sentiments, everyone. i honestly do.

but the idea of accepting anything positive is just ... out of the question right now.
