Brave to write, to love, to face criticism, to live according my own rules.”
Most storms have caught me by surprise, so I had to learn very quickly to exercise the art of patience and to respect the fury of nature.”
I’ve been on meds. for decades. I’m a devout believer in the talking cure of therapy & it’s structure & hope & absolutely life-saving sense of progress. I have a successful career. I’m in love w my wife of 23 yrs, & my 2 kids are the best people I know. My life is full. I am lucky.
And I will still reach the end of my life having walked through most of it with an emotional limp. I do not wallow in self-pity. No one did this to me. It is just how it is. I am just unlucky.”
