I just copied and pasted this entire response onto a Word document so that Ican read it on those shit days when I temporarily lose my why. If you had any idea how important this kind of thing is to all of us who struggle to be relevant to others, for whom it is uniquely valuable to know that what we write resonates with truth for others, you’d do a back flip. Or, a Lorna version thereof.
I am getting ready to write a third book about this very thing. It is immensely valuable to get your feedback because this helps me validate that I am on the right path. WE ALL NEED bread crumbs and markers. Shit I do too. Nobody has it all together. What I want to know is how do I best stitch up those wounded parts of me and heal up in such a way that I can move forward the best way I can. We are all of us wounded. We are all of us broken in some way. What we can do is share that which binds us rather than separates us, and that is what helps heal us all- if for no other reason than to emphasize that the ego’s lie that we are all alone is absolute positive bullshit.
None of us is alone. And when we share, laugh at, hoot at, make fun of what ails us, scares us and threatens to annihilate us, we all rise together. To me, that’s a big part of what Medium can do.
Very indebted to you today Lorna. Thank you.
