I think I have a new appreciation for the AT. These past couple of weeks, I have allowed myself to soften in his presence…To not need to be so guarded or careful…To be more of the real me. And he has responded with kindness and compassion and encouragement. And although the logical side of me knew prior to these past couple of weeks that he is a safe person, the emotional side of me has finally caught up. This is really important. And it feels solid, like trusting him is a real thing.
You know what? I even took my shoes off yesterday.
