About a month ago, something happened that I reacted to with anger and pain beyond what I thought myself capable of.

Today, it has been brought to my attention that while my pain and anger were not healthy, there is still the matter of the strength of those emotions. It seems that it may be possible that I not only have a sense of self, but also a force of self. There is a power within me that showed up as anger and pain last month.

I have been working for a while now to see things in my life that I thought were “me” and rename them as being apart from me. For the first time, I have something I can point to and say is me.

I am strong.
