It's definitely been a little weird ever since, but in a good way. I've never been able to explore all parts of myself freely. And these last two years were all about that. Nowhere near perfect though, and there's still so much to reconcile and grow from my past, but I have been trying to live more in the present. That in itself has been such a great feat.
Thank you so much, Elan. I hope you are well, and I hope your stepdaughter is too.
