I’m Open To You Part 2.

I am open to you ... let that sink in for a minute. See I spent a portion of my life feeling unwanted, I was convinced I was not a wanted child. Looking back on it, that's absurd, but it's how I felt at one point. To get a note saying I am open to… Continue reading I’m Open To You Part 2.
