Remembering Mind's ChangeRemembering Mind’s Change
It’s been three years and 21 colourful days since I last sliced myself on purpose. Yes, an anniversary not so many talk about, but an anniversary nevertheless. I chose to finally listen to what all said: I didn’t need it, I could cope without it, it was getting worse and I would surely die should it happen again. I had wanted to die, that was what the final slice was about, death, but instead of that day being an anniversary my family would fear it is now a day I can rejoice.
Having moved along my path and gotten the help I needed I can now see that, even though each year gets harder to resist instead of easier, I can resist. I can choose to pack away the knives with the other cutlery and not let them linger across my palm. I can choose to then walk from the kitchen to another room and start another activity. I can choose – I have changed.
So it is with trembling, with fear and joy, that I come to commemorate Janua
Love Is Not a DayTo all of those who – like me –
shun this holiday,
I write a simple note.
Even though they call us lonely,
truly we are not.
We have never been alone.
They mock us,
creating a holiday after “Couples Day”
calling it “Singles Awareness”.
But we are many, many more than they.
They think we do not know love,
or that we do not know how to share it.
The truth is much simpler than that.
We are less apt to commercialize
Love should not have a price tag –
and with their grand gestures
they say love can be bought.
But we know better than they.
Love is sacred,
and requires great devotion.
So, to you who are not part of a pair,
to you who know days do not define love,
to you who are not alone –
I write this Valentine.
