Finding Closure

We need to move on from our bitter roots. We must move on from enslavement to our disappointments. We must take the path out from the bog of despair, the dark haunted woods. If we’re honest with our soul, our  rejection of  acceptance is because permanent is so long. So how do we do it?… read more
