Unfinished Business: disclosure re dis-closure

disclosureBut, but, but… !!?”

What to do when you’re not able to get closure, to make amends, when you can’t accept or get past what you feel has been left unsaid, undone or unresolved? How can you ever be at peace? (How can the other?) How do you move forward, when closing the door on the past doesn’t seem possible?

longing for belonging?

butterfly on stalkHave you been ‘longing for belonging’, to feel ‘at home’, ‘accepted’? Your search is over; it’s already happened. You’ve (been) Chosen to Belong.
