Hard Won Peace
Finally, that protracted chapter in my life is over. I can now confront my ghosts and demons (of course, that doesn't mean I'll now actively pursue said ghosts and demons) without the danger of breaking down into overacting hystrionics. I've stepped off the roller coaster into the calm and serene waters of everyday living. Sure it's not as exciting nor as thrilling as a triple loop roller coaster, but it will do for now. Besides, I don't think my heart can weather another round any time soon.
So this is what being at peace with yourself feels like. Hmmm....not bad.
