It would have been nice if that experience of humanity changed me on the spot, but it didn’t.

I disagree. It did change you. In that moment, you started your journey back to love, to humanity — it’s not a coin that you flip, it’s a state of mind and you were there already. Please don’t sell yourself short.

This was a very moving piece. Thank you for sharing.
