The Story Behind Today's Gift
She’s an autistic empath. Can you imagine what that’s like? Can you imagine how difficult it would be to feel everything so deeply, but not know how to emotionally respond?
She craves more connection, but her mind isn’t making it easy. She’s been through some really rough things and her mind has bruises that aren’t fading away. On the bad days, her mind won’t even let her leave the house. She gets trapped in obsessive, self-sabotaging thoughts. She gets wrapped up in the emotional whirlpool. She longs for peace. She wants to dance free in the bright sunlight surrounded by friends and a kind lover. She wishes people could see how hard she’s trying. Her every day is a battle and she often feels very alone.
Her stepmom loves her dearly. Her heart breaks, knowing what happened in the past and how it affects her daughter in the present. She sees the battle and the complexity. She would love to help her break free.
