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.

Your words will change the world when you’re brave enough to share them!
