Lately, the question of who I am has been hard for me to contend with. Starting this project has forced me to recognize how duality exists in everything I am. I am all of the voices in my head, and it is unnecessary for me to single out one of them as my full identity. There is fluidity in who I am and how I love myself.
To me Lucenti is about joining with people I trust to bring clarity and light to the things that scare me. Over the last few years I have learned to be brave in exploring the places inside me that are shrouded in darkness. Through sharing my experiences I hope to lend you bravery to explore inside yourself.
If there is one lesson I hope to learn with you, it is the lesson of self forgiveness. I am learning that when we are able to forgive ourselves for our own darkness, only then can we really begin to forgive others. I am a novice at true forgiveness, I struggle with letting go.
It is important to me that you understand that I don’t know what is “right” for anyone, and have no intention of preaching a way of being. My writing space expresses the filter through which I see our world. I am looking forward to continually shifting as I share myself with you.
On that note, I welcome challenges to my way of thinking and being. If there is something I believe that can be broken, it needs to break. Someday I will tell you the story about how I came to respect my broken pieces.
Now, it’s time for me to learn how to love those pieces.
I am so thankful to have a space on the internet where I can share a record of my thoughts. Thank you for sharing with me.
