The visitor

Dear Visitor,

It is a blessing that you decided to visit. The emotional struggle has never been easy and with your visit, I see and believe again.

I looked back at the person I was back then and the person I am today and a sad realization that I have changed. Using the word change would probably be an understatement. It was more of; I was broken. My will paralyzed, thoughts swayed, dreams forgotten. Who am I? I could no longer answer with conviction.

When you came, you listened, you understood, you did not judge. You taught me to acknowledge. It was ok to be hurt, to be disappointed, sad, frustrated, and above all you showed me that it was ok to be broken. A broken arm will eventually heal. So too a broken heart.

It is not easy and will never be but with the little sense of acknowledgement, I bring myself to forgive and then to learn and let go.

I no longer doubt but believe again in what I lost faith in. The white lotus does indeed grow from mud into an object of great beauty.

Thank you my visitor for this valuable lesson. I will keep it close to my heart.

Yours sincerely.
