I’ve cleaned out my closet
The best portion of your life will be the small, nameless moments you spend smiling with someone who matters to you.
The healing process starts out of a place of honesty, vulnerability, and humility, primarily with our own selves and secondarily with others. I place those in that order because if we can’t be honest with ourselves, we can’t expect to be able to communicate our needs and frustrations with others. We have to stop demonizing our emotions and start listening to them; we have to quit believing the absurd notion that we’re insane just because we don’t fit a particular mold; we have to understand that we all have very specific needs, and just because something works for most people, it doesn’t mean it has to work for us.
