An Open Letter to My Friends and Family: I Am Surviving
Much in this post resonates for me. This phrase in particular stood out: “words pop culture has skewed outside their true experience.” YES. This makes things so much harder, when they think we’re having the same conversation — and only I know we are not.

I am glad you are surviving. I am glad so many of us are here, doing just that.

Writing My Scars
Bodies remember pain, don’t they? Even when we may not want to remember, our bodies will carry those memories on their own.

I am so sorry that you are struggling right now. I am sorry that you still hurt in places you have not yet been able to write down.

Or to write out — out of the body, onto the page.

I choose to believe my body carries burdens because it believes that I will someday need to go back through each memory before I can release it. I choose to believe that my body is doing what it can to help, painful though the memories may be. Perhaps, through all the hurt you now feel, there is your body loving you back. In the midst of the pain, in the midst of the grief, there is you loving yourself fiercely.

That love will still be with you, after you pass through this low space.

Peace to you, in darkness and in light —
alice
