    I’ve read every essay on this site over the past five years. They inspire me to take time to reflect on how I am sitting in the world. I suffered for ten years because of a failed medical implant. I had excruciating physical pain but that pales in comparison to my emotional suffering. A year ago medical doctors at Mayo were able to bring and end to that physical pain. Yet, I struggle with the emotional impact of that experience. As I read today’s post I realized that we are biologically equipped for physical survival but not alwaysequipped to be a survivor. They are vastly different constructs. One occurs naturally, the other requires intentional self reflection,forgiveness and a profound letting go I must let go of the suffering that defined me for a decade to be free of the fear of more suffering right around the corner. Thank you for this post.
