The love of a family that binds can also suffocate. That’s why the families we “make” along the way are often more loving, more forgiving & more compassionate than the ones we’re born into!
May the tribe you create be your life-long family & may it grow with you. Because once you find your heart, your courage & your voice, which it sounds like you did, & it is beautiful! — there is no going backwards! You sound like you have began to discover the glories within, I look forward to reading about your tremendous, adventurous life!
