For most of my life I've been stuck on one side, a side filled with anger, hate, anxiety and depression. Drowning in loss, I never knew what direction to go. And then she opened a door. From that open door came strands of light, they wrapped themselves around me, gave me strength to see the path that lay right in front of me. Over the last few years I have fought to get back to the middle, to balance the scale, to replace hate with love, anxiety with acceptance, and depression with happiness. I know that this fight will last the rest of my life but it is a fight I will not lose. I know this because she opened the door.
