I only wish I saw it sooner…
She suffers as I suffered. She is afraid as I was afraid.
Sometimes I’ll ask my friends if I’m *too* honest in my blog posts, if I’m too much…too out there. It is posts like Mia’s that remind me there’s no such thing. We are all participants in the human experience and all that is contained therein is valid. It’s all helpful. If you’re going through something, then you can damn well be certain that someone else is too.
**Side note: “Mia” is internet code for someone who identifies as bulimic, just as “Ana” is for someone who is anorexic.**
We can’t hide. We cannot hide our light from those who wish to see it. I see yours. You cannot hide from me.
There’s so much pain in this world and I believe that all pain is the same. At its root it is disconnection from Love. All this pain does is blind us to the truth of who we are: children of God (something bigger, higher and more pure than what we perceive with our five senses). We cannot hide that forever.
I found you Mia and though that is not your real name, I know a part of you so completely because it is a part of me. You cannot hide. Love is all around you. Remember that. Love is all there is.
Read Mia’s post here and send lots of love, please.
