Milagros (Millie) offers a relatable and analytic feedback that allows for me to own parts i did not even consider as a self-review of growth. Just into the 2nd session, I am exploring my permission to journal toward a clear path to state my intentions and be brave to admit all stopgaps are ways in which i have protected myself, and not as the result of the hand that had been given to me. I am grateful to grow with this insight.
