It may very well be that our deepest longing and need
is for connection.
To be heard.
To be understood.
To be known in our deepest places.
To learn to be more connected to the
parts of ourselves
and those we care for.
It isn't always an easy road.
Perhaps even considering connection
Often it entails
letting go of destructive habits.
Sometimes we just want to get unstuck.
Sometimes, you and I will need
to look at old patterns
and troublesome symptoms
to create new ones.
There may be moments
or facing hard truths.
You may need
to take a new path
or new future that is unknown.
On the other side
is the gold,
or the jewel,
or new life.
through hard work,
you can create a more satisfying life,
with less pain,
and less fear.
You can live a more authentic life,
being fully who you are.
More able to love and be loved.
More able to move through the world with ease.
More forgiving of yourself and others.
All along the way...I will be with you.
