Ah. But not now. If you are no longer doomed, then it stands to reason that you were never doomed in the first place. You are at a happy place, and every, single moment of awful you experienced only serves to enhance the good today.
He who has not truly known pain cannot truly know joy.
My friend Alison would have said,
“One day you’ll get to thank her for the gifts that came from this.”
One day has maybe arrived, huh? You should thank her. ❤
