I felt a shift…
Something must have really shifted after I let your words sink in, because I just haven't felt the tug of guilt that I normally feel. I don't think I've felt it since I read your email, and that's HUGE! ... I'm sure the guilt will come back at some point, but something has definitely shifted and I think it'll only get easier from here. I'm a little bubbly and emotional writing this, but I want to tell you how grateful I am. ... I used to feel sorry for myself for such a long time about not having any traditional forms of support, but how wonderful it is to finally reach a place where I recognise my support isn't found in conventional places, in the same way I'm not a conventional person, and that the support I have is rich and just what I need. Thank you.
