Over 10 years ago I cut most men from my life because of a violent act against me. I have sheltered those years in the healing arms of my women friends and was lucky enough to get excellent trauma therapy and support.
What was once personally a bonfire is now cold, dead and burnt out. I have slowly begun to add good men back in. I have been reminded of the sweetness, generosity and richness men bring to my life.
Here’s a counterpoint for you – below is a link to a video of the best of men – the love between a father and son. It truly is a balm if you are feeling beaten down right now.
With everything else that has been changing for me lately, when I woke up this morning, I knew that the Ford/Kavanaugh hearing was another turning point for me. This morning I could feel a huge energy rising up — within myself and energetically from the mass of others out there feeling the same.
What I want to say is this: I may have been weakened, beaten down and broken for awhile, but I have survived and — I. AM. BACK.
