Letter to a Case Manager:
Friday dinner with my parents, three brothers, my sister and brother in law and daughter Ashley was an evening I will always cherish. I do not recall ever being as vulnerable and honest. It was freeing. I shared with them my feelings as I never have in my life. I felt strong. There is a peace in my soul. My work at Seasons is not a dream. I did not betray myself with my family. I am authentic.
I am a real person no longer split off from my self. I am in tune with myself, my family and God. I am a real person. I have my Self back with me. I am a happy man. I am a man. For the first time in my life ” I Am”. Tonight at our Shaver cabin I did not rehearse my comments. I expressed myself in a new and fresh way. Oh my dear sweet God I am not locked up. I am not being smothered by inner shame and endless doubt. My heart is full.
I’m alive. I will sleep soundly tonight. Wow…I have tears of gratitude and faith and no shame. Kevin…..the real Kevin
