“This isn’t a phantom person. This isn’t an ideal. This is a living, breathing individual, already existing, already growing and pushing to move forward. And, waiting to receive me, just as I am them. That’s why I speak of them the way that I do. Because they are here. They already reside in my heart. I’m just waiting to receive them in this physical realm. I am waiting to be formally introduced to the person who makes up the other half of my spirit.”
This. All of it. Every single gahtdamn morsel.
