We're here together Mark!!! We breathe in and we breathe out. We look at ourselves another day and make a few different choices. We find people that accept and appreciate us, even honor us for our journey. We find understanding and love, and sometimes rejection and pain. We get up again, rinse and repeat. Sometimes it is just different, and we are lighter and renewed. We think better thoughts about ourselves, reach out and connect with others, have new experiences, relive old memories, sometimes fall back into the trauma, and breathe.... rinse and repeat. We keep stretching and growing and recognizing that change take time. We make a new commitment to do one thing different. We try a new sport, make a new friend, allow ourselves to be vulnerable with someone we trust. We learn to love ourselves.
It is possible. It is a long road with many ups and downs.
That's all I know.
Bless you brother!!!
