There is no greater honour or priviledge that process of healing for someone, to bear witness,to reach out a hand,to share the burden of someone's suffering,and to hold the hope for their recovery.
And likewise, for survivors of distress and adversity, that we don't have to live our lives forever defined by the damaging things that have happened to us.
We are unique.
We are irreplaceable.
What lies in within us can never be truly colonized, contorted or taken away.
The light never goes out.
