Free yourself from the prison of your need to be validated. If only this can be accomplished in you, then peace beyond understanding is yours. In that peace comes healing, and after your healing, wholeness.
After a lifetime of inprisonment, you lean on the cell door only to realize that it has been unlocked the entire time. After a candid forehead slap, gather yourself and take the first step toward freedom. May the wave of grace push you quickly toward all that you truly are.
