Every day, I wish and pray this chapter of our life will pass. But I cannot control when the page turns. I can at least put the secrecy behind me. I believe our power cannot be usurped by things outside of our control. However, shame can immobilizes us when we hold it close.

People have many layers. If you love yourself, a good metaphor for you is to think of people like an onion--rings upon rings of flavor.

With age and experience, I know now that it's possible I would have just stepped into my mother's shoes, maybe not as a waitress, but as some other hard-working female who never got to live her dreams. This would have been what my mom called "life" but for me it would have been death.

You'll have seen the cartoon. Everyone's seen the New Yorker cartoon of two dogs in front of a PC, with the savvier one saying ''On the internet, nobody knows you're a dog." Those days are long gone -- now everyone knows what breed of dog you are, what canine websites you visit, where you purchase your collars and your preference of colour for water bowls.
