I visualize a very high arching walking bridge for me to cross
When I reach the other side I find the little me sitting happy and content

He sees me and says, “There you are! I’ve been waiting for you!”

Together, we walk toward the grownup side
We reach the top of that arch, and look over the rail

Way down below (a couple hundred feet at least) there is the man that hurt us
He can no longer reach us
can no longer hurt

We turn from the drop and continue our way

I quickly reacquaint with the little me I left so long ago

Now I feel complete and so very happy

Wow, this is so inspiring, it is like a past dream comes true.

This is how it should be, and we all must carry on and relate to this beautiful thought,

thanks for sharing,

I can't find my "power" and I am no high enough to be out of the grasp of those many people who abused me. Give me wings? Can you?

Hey Gang,

since my offender is looking to gain some freedom I've been feeling a little... off. I wanted to bring this up to the top to give me a some strength.

I Hope someone finds as much inspiration in it as I do. Life can be tough but there are paths and tools to get through it. At my level I Weekend of Recovery I used this visualization when I wrote the letter to myself as part of an activity we all worked on.

Thanks everyone.

Never know what to say to something like this, Curtis. I remember your story very well. If just being here and caring helps, then I can help. The image is beautiful. I intend to use it. Bobby

Hey Curtis,

It's cool to look at this thread and see how far you have come since those rough days of the trial, or parole review I guess it was. You worked so hard for everything you have gained. Well done!

Much love,
Larry
