law-of-x

When I was a kid something bad happened to me. I was so ashamed that I didn’t tell anyone for years. I didn’t even know what I’d done wrong, or what was happening to me, but I thought it was my fault and there was no one there to hold me and tell me it was okay. It wasn’t until this summer that I finally really confronted it; my therapist had me go back and tell my past self that she would be okay. That it wasn’t her fault. I never cried so much in my life as I did for that little girl.

I think Launo derives from that little girl in me. I think we all have a kid in us somewhere who needs to be told that it’s okay, that we’re okay.
