Well now I weep easily as huge blocks of anger and repression were removed at the Haven. I am so much kinder and softer also. I stop and meet the eyes of strangers now. I connect with others in a heartfelt way and I say I love you generously now instead of sparingly... I look myself in the mirror every day and say" Look at you! You're Alive!" I am open to love and life. I am not afraid like I was before I went to the Haven...Thanks for all of the love and connection! I am so grateful.
