Old ways of being born of survival, slip gently from shoulders alleviating weight. The reality is as I was growing up and in many years of my life my full self expression illicited abuse and cost me love. Facing my trauma I am learning it is safe to peek out from hiding, stepping into thriving, I allow myself to be fully seen. Fear of loss of love has been too long shrouding crippling authentic voice and ways of be. Full blown self expression parades to the heart of me. Integrity calling for me to shine. I love myself as I am, embodying the truth- I am safe and I am enough.
