...pre judgement, pre rejection, pre abuse. I hope these memories flood your heart with goodness. Seriously. And you are valued again here, Magellan. I read the post where you explained your screen name this evening. I thought it way to cool and full of positive symbolism. Life is one big journey of discovery. Cherish the memories as they come of your pre abusive life. It is that precious.
And I am jealous. The only memory I have of pre-abuse is being lead down that pathway to the outbuilding. When you have the chance, maybe you could share what it was like to play and love and be loved without the burdens. Continue to remember!
For now we see through a glass, darkly.
