Im here to say that I was able to find my way back from the darkness, although I sometimes stumbled and even crawled. I discovered techniques based on trial and error that enabled me to heal my inner child. I told little Lorianna that although I appreciated everything she has done for me, I would take it from here. I told her to go to her room, I envisioned my childhood bedroom from the floral bedspread to the ivory snow baby pictures on the wall. I told the little girl version of me to hop into bed and I tucked her in. I told her the story of Little Red Riding Hood, kissed her on the forehead and left on the nightlight.
