What an incredibly beautiful story, thank you for sharing this in response to my own. These final lines resonate with me so strongly.
The human mind, the subconscious, the conditioning from a multitude of experiences - it's all interconnected, and we're on a journey of learning who we are and what we desire without those extra layers.
I often ask myself, am I changing or have I always been this way? Does it even matter?
Our minds want to understand, and going down that path can be frightening, frustrating, and sometimes triggering. If our attempts to understand who we once were as children start to feel too painful, we can look forward to the excitement of new exploration and expression of who we've always truly been.
