“It has less to do with regaining control, but more on being in harmony with reality. It’s not simply gathering pieces of we; rather, it’s gathering peace and giving ourselves the opportunity to be whole again. It is an opportunity to make room for the present, so we may shape it into the future we so desire and letting the past be because it takes up so much space in our lives. It is more than just forgiving ourselves, it is returning the trust we have stolen from ourselves in a desperate attempt to bend reality.” ― Erwin D. Maramat
