I won't insult you or lie to you by minimizing here. Yes, to share your soul and to be ridiculed/chided/lectured/preached to/judged for it has to be one of the hardest blows of all.

Much love,

Nobody living can ever stop me
As I go walking my freedom highway.
Nobody living can make me turn back:
This land was made for you and me.
(Woody Guthrie)
