And it has culminated in some intense conversations that were probably long past due for me. On second thought, no not probably....they WERE long past due for me. I finally opened up the vault and took out some junk and denied realities I had been keeping for years.
And because I have shared them, I no longer have to carry them alone. There are many other things still within me, but for now I am grateful for being able to share a piece of myself with someone who was willing to patiently, and gracefully listen.
