"So we grew together
Like to a double cherry, seeming parted,
but yet a union in partition;
Two lovely berries molded on one stem."
~William Shakespeare ~
We need each other to bounce ideas of off and to share our joys and challenges. It's a wonderful thing to know that we are not alone, that others have felt as we feel and that they struggle just like us.
And we can't know these things unless we are willing to open up and unveil whatever's going on inside. We don't have to pretend to be anything other than we are. We can be messy, unsure, bubbling over with high hopes, or feeling dark and dangerous. The point is simply to speak up. This is a shared adventure and there is no percentage in going it alone.
I share myself with others and encourage them to share with me in return.
