Remembering who I was before the abuse seems to be becoming a very important thing for me right now.

I've been getting in touch with memories, and more importantly, feelings I used to have before the abuse started. Feelings of connection with my peers, unending trust and companionship with my neighborhood friends. Pre judgment, pre rejection, pre abuse. I loved and I was loved for simply being alive. I was valued simply because I was there.

To cherish those thoughts and memories and FEELINGS seems to be very important to me in these days. I wonder why?

...pre judgement, pre rejection, pre abuse. I hope these memories flood your heart with goodness. Seriously. And you are valued again here, Magellan. I read the post where you explained your screen name this evening. I thought it way to cool and full of positive symbolism. Life is one big journey of discovery. Cherish the memories as they come of your pre abusive life. It is that precious.

And I am jealous. The only memory I have of pre-abuse is being lead down that pathway to the outbuilding. When you have the chance, maybe you could share what it was like to play and love and be loved without the burdens. Continue to remember!
For now we see through a glass, darkly.
