i literally scrolled back up midway through reading this to see if i'd accidentally clicked on one of my older pieces. your words are my words. your feelings are my feelings. and you are far from empty, but i feel you in that it seems like you're not getting the nurturing you need -- i can relate to this hard.
that realization is so empowering, because now you can do something about it! and i do believe the losing ourselves is part of the process of finding ourselves. anyway, not trying to be too cliche over here but i'd love to hear where you're at now. the universe heals when you heal yourself <3
keeping find your voice, because what you have found is magic
