I just wanted to say, it's okay, you don't need to hide anymore. I no longer fear you, deny you, ignore you nor despise you. I did for many years and hid you away from the world when you dared to surface. Did it make you laugh or cry as I did everything I could to deny your existence and present to the world a face that is the opposite to who you are? Did you peep out from behind my pretty, shiny mask to wave at the shadows so carefully hidden away in others?
I've come to see that the more I ignore you, the more powerful you become and the more wretched too. When I call your sh*t, fairly and truthfully you freeze, like a rabbit caught in the headlights. I won't let you destroy me or take full control, I've come too far for that. Besides, that's not your true destiny, nor mine. There's something far bigger in store for both us.
