    To bear one's soul, to be brave enough to expose oneself to negative forces, without protection. This takes a kind of strength that is beyond us sometimes, but we must take a risk to move on. I have been across this rickety bridge before. Very well posed, your description of the vulnerability was right on point.

    I sure feel ya on this, sister angelicsage. It's almost like you're in my head. Been dealing with shades of this myself lately. You've spoken to my heart again, and I hope it helps even a little bit to know you're not alone. Much love...

    i need some tissue on this one

    once again, you amaze with your soulful insight...

    i know its tough sometimes but you have to bare the soul because that's the only way she works
    the soul cannot function covered-enclosed...
    she only functions...
    Exposed...

    this was exquisitely written and touched my soul :heart:

    I pray that one day I can unchain strength and take him out of the closet, cause right now...he's been abducted by my fear...

    Girl...now you know...We are the kindred spirit...I'm amazed we've never written together before...somehow I sense it would be a phenomenal fusion of one voice and experience...Thanks for feeling me...

    Much luv Sister!
