I feel your drowning and your burning, and your realization that each of us has to find a very personal responsibility to this Life.
Likewise, after six decades I look back with a WTF? Was that my life? Who am I, really? Why wasn’t I told? Why didn’t I listen? Why did I believe (and at times, live) lies? Now with the maturity to finally say, ‘Hey, I don’t care what my story has been to date, only love can get us out of this mess’.
I didn’t know men thought the way you do. Thank you for expressing your strength, confusion, despair, grief, pride and everything between. I think Life is like a work of art. It can be a pretty messy at times, and not turn out the way we imagined it. We create more beauty through practice, over and over. We each need to become a paintbrush dipped in love to create a masterpiece.
I think you’ve found your valid voice—keep talking. You’re among friends.
