Recovery is no longer the Holy Grail
I think the Effects of CSA can never be erased
Time cannot be turned back or the Damages undone
Now I know that Normal is not the same as Perfect
I’ve learned there is no Magic Pill or Miracle Cure
Sometimes Wholeness seems like the Impossible Dream
The unattainable Promised Land that is
either still far distant or always just out of reach
Even those with a “perfect” childhood have problems
No one is untouched by pain or difficulty or tragedy
Healing is relative and it is a continuous process
I may never arrive, never be finished
But I will be much further along the way
than when I first began
And I will be much better at the end than I am now
Just as I am much better now
than I was at the beginning

There’s a special providence in the fall of a sparrow. If it be now, ’tis not to come. If it be not to come, it will be now. If it be not now, yet it will come—the readiness is all. - Hamlet, Act 5, sc 2
