letter to a friend

Dear friend,

In these moments of despair, remember that every journey, even the most tormented one, is a journey towards understanding and self-expression. As I once wrote, "The bird fights its way out of the egg. The egg is the world. Who would be born must first destroy a world."

In your pain, there is a world waiting to be destroyed, and in its place, a new one can be created. This process of creation, of becoming, is not without struggle, but it is necessary.

Do not fear the path that lies ahead, for every path leads somewhere, and even in darkness, there is light to be found. Our lives are like the seasons, they flow from one to the next, each with its own beauty and hardship. Embrace this cycle, for it is the rhythm of life itself.

In times of difficulty, seek solace in solitude. Use it as an opportunity to turn inward, to reflect, and to discover your own depths. Remember, "Within you, there is a stillness and a sanctuary to which you can retreat at any time and be yourself."

Finally, remember to honor your feelings, your struggles, and your victories. Each is a part of your unique journey. Know that "Everything becomes a little different as soon as it is spoken out loud." So, speak your truth, express your feelings, and let them guide you on your path.

With warmth and understanding, G
