There are two of me.

Updated: Jan 2, 2023

There's the one who survived a traumatic event.


...She still emails other survivors.


....She works with the police.


...She does therapy weekly to untie the deep-rooted knots of what happened.


...She emails abuse nonprofits to volunteer.


...She's brave but depressed.


...Helping and hurting.


...She's surviving and fighting.



Then there's the other.


...The one who travels the world.


...Who worked for a startup in NYC.


...She's in love, wondering if she can live abroad.


...She imagines a fairytale life of adventure.



Can both live together?


Are they separate paths, a fork in the road?


If I choose the second, did the first happen in vain?


Did it happen at all?
