I have a story.
My story is of some value as long as I don’t get lost in it, as long as I don’t identify my true being with it.
It can help me relate with and connect with others. I can help people with the experience, strength and hope of surviving it.
My story can help me learn about what I want and don’t want to be today.
The mind, body and spirit are interconnected. I am a being in human form, so I must allow myself to be human.
Whether I like it or not, I have a mind that has been conditioned by my past and that is what I want to break free of.
I no longer want to buy into the ideas I received from the world and people in it.
I don’t want to live like I am what happened to me.
These ideas about myself and others keep me in bondage.
I want to live in truth.
If I don’t take a look at where these ideas have and still play a part in how I experience this human journey, I can’t be free of them.
The work is in becoming conscious of and making sense of my past so that I may help others do the same.
I want to be free of it.
The good news is through every painful time, there is a beginning, middle and end.
Sometimes it’s just about holding on.
