I met you 3 years ago today. I’ve dreaded this day every year since.
I’ve abandoned my life searching for the thing that will heal my soul. So far I’ve traveled to 5 states, hiked to the top of mountains, swam in frigid rivers, driven hundreds of miles and met amazing humans, all on their own journey. And as much as I would like to say that my soul is closer to what it was before you, I am admittedly aware of the pain that I was seeking to outrun.
I am hoping to lead with love and forgiveness, hoping that grace will piece me back together, putting myself in the way of the undeniable magic of this planet.
I forgive you.
You destroyed my soul and I will never be whole, but I sure hope the pieces you took serve you well.
