Feeling so much gratitude for this weekend, these people, and this wonderful experience that I got to share with you all. Thank you for accepting me, flaws and quirks and nerves and all. I can’t even begin to explain what that means to me, but it’s been a very long time since I’ve felt so free and unburdened, and able to be myself, wholly and completely, without feeling like a burden to everyone around me or constantly fearing that if I let parts of me show that aren’t perfect, I will never be able to have the kinds of friendships that i now realize aren’t even possible when your life is engulfed in the fear of letting anyone get to know you. This past weekend was one of the best and most enlightening, rejuvenating and uplifting experiences I’ve ever had. I needed it more than I ever could have realized. This past week between Rosh Hashannah (Jewish New Year) and Yom Kippur (the Day Of Atonement) was meant to be a time of reflection on all that has transpired in the past year, and to make amends with all the people you have wronged before making your amends with God. I did my best to make amends with all the people I had wronged, and as for reflection, this experience allowed me to do just that, and with all of these reflections came the realization (though I had thought I had already done this) that I still had to make amends with myself.
Ultimately, my point is this: The relief and the gratitude I feel towards you all for giving me this gift - your friendship, your total acceptance of who I am (Good and bad), your love and kindness and support, helping me to explore my ability to take a step further in my search and recovery of myself, and my ability to feel comfortable being uncomfortable- is so tremendous and overwhelming that I can’t begin explain how lucky I feel and how grateful I am to have had this time
with you and to have you all in my life. Thank you all so much for a truly incredible, life-changing experience. ♥️♥️♥️
