Last night I wrote and cried while my dogs watched. Rewriting our own traumatic events is hard but if it wasn’t hard it wouldn’t generate power. Revisiting my moments, feeling them again, stepping back into the folded fabric from that period of my life gives me agency over my past. So I sit in emotions like a hot bath. Observe them objectively and without judgment. Then let them go.
