who was this girl who walked in silence? why she was ______ the Queen of the Forest and all its living things (the antlers you see on her head were given to her graciously by the deer whom she had saved).
I don’t believe we ever compartmentalize our emotions or life experiences. I understand why so many make this attempt, believing in a successful outcome. But each and every life experience, and the subsequent emotions that live within that moment, become a part of who we are – like it or not. So I say, sit with the experience. Work through the emotion. Allow it time to heal, then release it. Even then, those emotions do not dissipate as the words might lead us to believe.
