Nothing is the same…

Shattered are the cruel lines once drawn around me….broken are the perfect golden frames….

I once imprisoned myself in a past I could not change…

My heart wanted to replay the endless possibilities…infinite ways they could be rearranged…

If I had just….

If I didn’t….

A million what ifs once filled my mind with a constant loop of memories…

But no matter how I played it out…

Staying in the past never gave me a way to truly be free…

Obsessions and addictions to cope with the pain…

Living in a world of dark skies and impossible rain…

Letting go….for me was finally letting myself care about something other than the trauma and abuse…

Healing my wounds with compassion and love and daily thank yous….

The pain began to fade….the rain began to lift….and my heart slowly found peace…

All the fears of my past…

I had to forgive…love….and finally release….
