Dear God please let me go soon. Please send me a condition that ends it for me now so that I don’t have to give into my wrists and hurt those who love me, for whatever reason they find appropriate, since I deeply know how much they are mistaken and have not yet woken up to my basic unloveableness and unworthiness to exist.

Life is a spectrum disorder.

‘Shine light on your trauma and it will dissolve.’

I challenge that world and the sadness it sows in me for others. I challenge those damaged parental voices too. I do it through my writing. I do it in my meditation. I do it in my approach to life.
