Always knowing the right thing to say.
That is the wound.
That the biggest fear.
That I will be weighed and found wanting.

but perhaps I was the one to stoop
and gather them up.
If I threw them all away,
Would you still want me around?

“There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear. For fear has to do with punishment, and whoever fears has not been perfected in love.” - John
Freedom... and freedom from fear
fact? or fiction?
...is it ok that I'm not there yet?
