“I had wanted to know all of what happened for such a long time, then suddenly, I did.”
For me, writing my story in this anthology was complicated. Initially I was writing about another experience, then, that writing opened the last pieces to this regressed memory.
I had wanted to know all of what happened for such a long time, then suddenly, I did.
The story seemed to write itself from there.
Going forward, because my story is now “out there”, I can no longer hide it, or push it aside for a better time to cope and heal.
Thus, I continue to learn about myself, my strengths and limitations, and how to ask for help. This was a difficult undertaking, but I believe the best rewards come when we extend ourselves.
I remain truly grateful for the opportunity.
