Thanks Cheryl for sharing your awareness. Your post brought me some tears. A mixture of sadness with a deep inner joy. I don't know how to explain it. I feel identified with both the young girl and her fears, and you with your awareness that it is not our bodies or our personalities but something deeper and far more interesting and lasting than that. Our beings, perfect with their imperfections. So unique rich and valuable. I work every day on letting go of the restrictions of my personality so I can experience myself in a much deeper and meaningful way. I feel Alexandra will find her way too.
Thanks again for showing us.

PS: I wonder how she would feel if she read all this?
