I am here because there is no place left to hide from myself. I have come to understand that until I confront myself in the eyes and hearts of others, I am only running. I am beginning to know hat my secrets have kept me addicted, imprisoned, enslaved, and that until I am willing to risk sharing these secrets openly and with courage, I will be ruled by them and at their mercy. I have been afraid to be known, and therefore know neither myself nor others. I have been isolated, cut off from everyone and myself, alone in a hostile world. Where else, but here, among those whose lives reflect mine, can I hope to find myself. Within this Community of those who have suffered as I have suffered, I can at least see myself clearly, not as the genius of my dreams nor the fool of my fears, but as a person, a part of the community, with my share in its purpose. In this place and at this time I can at least be the person I truly am, free of fear, true in all things, no longer alone as in death, but alive to myself and others.
