We met at your Nebraska PostSecret Live! event last night. I’m the woman who drove down from Minnesota and who told my secret to everyone about why that was so significant to me.
Firstly, I want to thank you so much for everything. Your acknowledgement and validation of my struggle means more to me than you can ever know. I have never felt anything like that in my life. My heart is overflowing with love for everyone I met there.
Like you talked about, we often keep secrets from ourselves, and I think in the end the real secret was I couldn’t forgive myself. There is still a ways to go, but realizing this I can let go a bit and start to heal. I know I will never gain back what was lost completely. But like I said in my secret, I am gaining back a piece of what was lost. Right now that’s honestly more than I thought I’d ever have.
PS. Oh, and you managed to pull off my hat quite nicely.
