In the wake of this experience, the loneliness backfills the vacuum of empty space where life resided.
The pain will never go away. I will only find perspective for the pain. It is a part of me now. To hate the pain is to hate myself; to love myself is to love my pain.
As the Troll Patrol have actively sought me out I’ve lost my focus. I’ve responded defensively to opinions that don’t matter to me.
Instead of lashing out, I need to have compassion for their pain.
