- James Clifford, Returns: Becoming Indigenous in the Twenty-First Century (2013)
Sometimes I cry thinking about all the pain I’ve ever endured.. I cry for the younger me that was abused and turned to negative ways of coping. I think of the little girl that was bullied and didn’t know what to do but to absorb all the bad stuff.
I guess that just reminds me to continue on my path and keep healing. I still have a long way to go. I used to think the process had an end. Go to a ceremony here… try to meditate here, and you were good. I know now that my healing is continuous.
