Author + writer
Counselor + healer
Singer + musician
It doesn’t matter that I have yet to master any one of these roles, nor that there are some I have not even dared to spend much time with. It doesn’t matter that my voice is perfectly boring and average and surely bad, by some standards, nor that I have never been in love.
These are who I am when I am soul-level honest with myself, and it feels great to acknowledge that.
Even if I wanted to, I couldn’t pick one and be that forever.
Because before dark moments are felt, I don’t know which role I will most easily slip into and escape with. I don’t know which version of me will be my saviour, I don’t know who will help me find my way again.
And before I’m back on track, I don’t know who will rocket me into the sky.
I need all of me, and I refuse to let any fade away.
