Thank you, Amber, for sharing so honestly. I had my own fears about microdosing

for similar reasons, not wanting to have a "bad trip" and re-ignite the trauma, and with the right accompaniment, it has been one of the most healing things I have done for myself and for my younger self as well. x

This is so beautiful, and resonated deeply: "I sensed an enormous, steady, confident presence within me; a mother without fear of her own potential. You’re getting free, I thought to myself."

Great article every time I was hurt I ran and hide. I always been afraid to face my wounds. I sometimes feel I let people hurt me from my biological father to a person who stole my life and framed me a decade ago. I have mental and physical scars that I wish I could free myself from my past and wounds. I hope you keep writing and publishing stories.

I'm glad to hear that you've managed to work your way out of this sad circumstance. Strangely, I had a lot of admiration for the person at the time you're talking about, or at least shortly before this period perhaps. So It's interesting to hear you talk about what was happening to you at that time. It actually gives me a lot more respect for you because of it.
