When you strip your soul bare, and you rip down and throw out all the defenses, the barriers, the walls, the side-steps, when you face fear and say "forget it" and write it anyway, when you become that VULNERABLE, that's healing, part one.
When the people you care about, the ones you admire, the ones whose opinions matter, when they VALIDATE you, and they SEE you and your pain and your fear and they're still there; when those people say it's ok, that's healing, part two.
Thank you all here on this site for journeying with me, for still being here, for being part of my healing. Don't think I could do it without you.
