I Say These Things To Myself

Now that you are coming of age, stepping into healing, how will you address yourself? What hand will you extend to your inner child and which parts of them are you inviting to dine with the woman you are now?

I Say These Things To Myself is an embodiment of freedom, taking back and redefining things taken away from you, walking a journey where you find and hold your own hand and harnessing a softness for the self like no other.
