Go to the mirror now. Look courageously deep within yourself.
There’s a little you, the child you used to be, frozen inside you.
She or he disappeared a long time ago
because the harm they suffered was simply unbearable.
To be released from the shackles
you have to explore the darkest
and most hidden areas of your life,
while braving the terrifying obstacles
that were strategically placed in front of you.
Finding this child
is equivalent to discovering yourself.
You will have to dig deep
and summon every ounce of courage
and strength you have that,
until this moment,
you were convinced you didn’t.
The decision is yours:
remain in your predictable
but perpetually dysfunctional life,
or take the frightening “road less traveled.”
This journey is the only way to reunite
with your lost innocence
and birthright for joyful self-love.
You can make the right choice.
