"A Penny for Your Thoughts"
I sense that I need to connect to my past.
I feel that my secrets are keeping me from complete emotional freedom.
I find it intimidating to be accepted into a compassionate community when I have caused so much grief.
I do have regrets, I do have remorse and now I have understanding
I am inspired by empathetic people that have touched my heart by not judging me by my past.
People tell me “I don’t care about your past,” “Who you are today is what is important”, “You are a good person”
and I didn’t believe them.
Once I believed and realized that my life and my existence had value did I finally hear what they said,
Today my life is blessed and I get to bless others, through my compassion, empathy, and spirituality.
I accept that I am a good person, but what does that mean? Good is subjective, I believe what they mean is what I do today will affect others positively and enhance their quality of life.
I do my best to be transparent and open so that secrets will not silence my heart, nor control it.
