I feel so constrained, like anything could happen and I’d just look it in the face like I always have, without showing any emotion or even a flinch. Since the beginning cutting things off has worked for me. I’ve compartmentalized some parts of my life which are scary or upsetting and put them in a box marked “not to be touched” so that nothing on the outside can affect me worse. The flipside is I just want to be free of the legacy of abuse and to live my life not caring about such things. Trying to find the balance is dificult. JS
Love is better than anger. Hope is better than fear. Optimism is better than despair. So let us be loving, hopeful and optimistic. And we’ll change the world.
