Thank you for this. This is me. And considering I just wrote two huge articles; one about my relationship with my father, and the other about giving myself permission to feel angry — this is what I needed to put at the end of those — the ability to celebrate who I am as a result of the past wounds. My sis is a psychologist — I had that advantage for the last 11 years. And I am a holistic physical therapist. My joke about this over the years has been (see that sense of humor?) that we made a career out of healing to deal with the childhood we had. I love the way you pull this all around to the positives — it’s the way I’ve tried to live, speak, write and work my entire life. I’m definitely grateful for the gifts.
