Why does healing and moving on ask for so much pain. Have we not endured enough. Does the attacks on our self worth, self esteem and sexual identity have to be so awful. Why is it that we, of all who suffer, seem to cope in the most self destructive ways. Is that what we want or are programmed for. I truly do not know. But I know that it hurts unbelievably for all of us.

Mikey,

That wasn't coping; that was denying, avoiding, fleeing. The actual coping is painful in its own way, because it's in really facing the pain that we begin to cope.

It gets better. Keep us posted on how things go tomorrow. We're with you in spirit, Mikey, from all over the world. You're in our thoughts and prayers.

Thanks,

Joe
