I have pushed full force past boundaries, even barricades, but I have paid attention each time. I feel like I'm building the skill of forgiving myself my humanity, as long as I don't allow myself to become a monster. This is the best thing I can do to build trust with my intimates, whether it has been broken, healed, or only dreamed about.
I work on trusting myself, so my so my decisions are authentic and kind. I trust that if I work, they will love me for who I am, love my flaws like they are shining diamonds, because each is a precious opportunity to carefully keep from falling, and delight in, much like RP said.
There is a safe place in my heart where it is impossible to tell lies. I made it for myself. I invite them in.
Rarechild, I love the delicateness of your words here. My words seem clumpsy and awkward next to yours sometimes.
I think I need to read this thread again or something because as much as I love your words. I don't have any clue what they mean LOL
could you give me more to go on... cause I want to.
