“I kept trying to apologize for the girl I was, for the harm she caused, the things she did and said. It comes back again and again, the fear based thinking, the shame. But then I remember: I don’t believe in repentance. I don’t believe in confession. I don’t believe in performative guilt. I accept myself and love myself unconditionally. I believe in integrity, transformation, compassion, change. And I have changed. I am finding myself again, and not as a disavowal of everything I was. This self is the outgrowth of that one. The person I am today could only have come through that transformation.
There is no purity. There is no original sin. There is no secret terrible thing inside of me that makes me bad or unlovable. There is nothing to repent. There is nothing to confess. There is the work and process of change. There is the complexity of being a human being. There is the tangle of intergenerational and collective trauma. There is the decision to heal.”
