Was it worth it? HELL yes.

I sat and I cried
the longest
I thought
it would never stop.
But it did.
No longer scared.
No longer alone.
I can climb any mountain
sing any song.
Today I was set free.

I drew this "self portrait" a year and a half ago. I was in a very dark and lonely place. My world had been turned upside down - again. But - I knew that if I didnt give up and was willing to do this hard work that I would find my way out of that dark place.

Was it easy? Hell, no.

But ask me if facing the past and the pain was LESS painful than continuing to live in denial and avoidance?

Hell, yes.

Now - ask me if it was worth it.

HELL yes.
