I'm 100% with you. Open sharing, even of those things that hurt me most, is what has gotten me through adult life, and it's a huge part of why I'm here on Medium.
I've attempted the Artist's Way three times since I was about fifteen, and this year I got my closest to finishing it--week 9 I think? Someday, I'll make it all the way through.
It's so nice to meet you here! I'm looking forward to reading your stories. 😊
