I am not sure I want to even acknowledge what I feel, for fear that it will come back. I have attained a certain level of peace (whether or not it is false, I cannot know) and I do not want to shatter it. One does not touch the wound that already stings, after all.
Do what your younger self never thought she could do.
Be who she always dreamed of being.
Darling, make that little girl proud.
