Get started

Nobody said it would be easy.

Don’t you dare
turn to me for answers;
turn to me looking for something, anything;
turn to me to fill that void in you that you are trying to hide and ignore at the same time
(That must be exhausting).

Yes, I see it, this void-
clearly, I do.
And yes, I know its depth and the painful hollowness
in that void,
I really do; I remember this scary feeling.

Which is why I can tell you this
with absolute certainty
(if only you would listen):
Only you can fill it,
with joy and love,
with meaning,
with yourself, if you know that person.

Only you.

I promise it is worth it, in the end.

Yet nobody who has walked this path would tell you it is an easy one. That would be a lie. And we who are on this path do not lie, not to ourselves, nor to others.

We walk with open arms and eyes and hearts. We see. This is what makes us real.

I invite you to make the first step on this path. Close your eyes. Breathe. Go.
