A friend and colleague had this to say about my post of September 30, Damaged:
Speaking as one of the formerly damaged (as you well know), just bc this woman is in that space now does not condemn her to live there forever. Over the last few years I have learned that it is possible to bring change. It is HARD WORK and no one is going to do it for you, but bringing it becomes ever easier when people hold an image of our true
selves rather than the human suit we wear – a reverse invisibility cloak – a visibility cloak of our fears and projections or of our love and gratitude.
My comment back to my colleague is that I often
experience the most difficult and opaque readings as the most rewarding in the long run….
People that my logical brain said weren’t even listening come back a year later looking altogether different, with smiles and openness, healing and growing…. I’m holding the hope that Damaged is one of them….
After all, I was once full of unexpressed anger, too…. and I know and honor that journey….
