Go ahead. Ask me. I finally stopped running from who I am and what I do, I've learned the hard way to live in the moment. People talk to me. They talk more when I'm out and about, relaxed and functioning from my authentic self. See, I am the one who runs into the "Big Orange Store" for a lightbulb and leaves knowing the entire life history of the cashier. I go shoe shopping, then stop & sit with a young woman who "lost herself" (true story, and no, no shoes). I go on vacation, and end up hanging out with a veteran~ hearing his story 'cuz this guy matters! I just find myself surrounded by people who simply need to be "heard". So, I listen.
I believe we all have stories and healing comes from telling them. I am real, I am honest, I've skinned my knees and got back up. I have scars, some still hurt, others are reminders of experiences I managed to get through. I like my scars. I've spent my life trying to box myself into being someone everyone else thought I should be. It almost broke me. No. I won't be boxed in. I am me, unique, and I navigate through life's mess with flailing grace. We were never meant to do life alone. That's what this forum is for. Bringing us together and sorting through the junk. Go.
