Default Anniversary

This week Iím back outside longer than I was inside (6 years) and off of paper longer than I was on it (another 3 years). Itís taken a while, but Iím finally starting to feel like itís all behind me. The memories from inside however are still alive, active and vivid. I rarely go a day without some odd thing triggering some old memory from my time inside. I wish the memories would go away, but Iím starting to think that may never happen.

At any rate, itís good to be outside and off paper. The worst day of the year outside and off paper is universes better than the best day of the year inside or on paper.

Congrats, and I pray with a little more time the memories that still haunt you will fade away also.

You've triumphed! The signs of struggle will never leave you entirely, but they will lessen. And you wouldn't know your own strength if you hadn't gone through all that and come out the other side.
