Thought for The Week

“Owning our story can be hard but not nearly as difficult as spending our lives running from it. Embracing our vulnerabilities is risky but not nearly as dangerous as giving up on love and belonging and joy—the experiences that make us the most vulnerable. Only when we are brave enough to explore the darkness will we discover the infinite power of our light. ”    –Brené Brown

  1. Your website is exactly what I have wanted to find. My mother, estranged and with BPD, is the source of where my pain and, as I am discovering, healing both began. I’ve been keeping a journal, irregularly, since 2011. My journal is a blog, and it’s me owning every part of my life as it connects so strongly with my childhood.

    So much of my life has changed, while so much has just been a repeat of pain, over the past 5-6 years since I started my blog. When I read my own entries during times I was barely existing in that dark place, I was very much on track to becoming a healthy adult. My writing shows I was healing while I begged for relief and truth and care.

    This moment is a big life moment – discovering your articles. I feel a sense of hope and happiness. Your blog is now a part of my healing journey and I cannot wait to see where it takes me.

    With joy,


    • Kristin, I am humbled. Extraordinarily. Thank you. Sometimes the life behind the posts is extremely difficult. You have really offered me a measure of encouragement that isn’t easily explained or quantified. Thank you. I wish you an immeasurable amount of peace and joy as you continue to heal. Shalom…MJ
