Remembering is how we grow.
Forgive and forget is dreadful life advice for people who want to grow.
Remembering is how we develop ourselves.
Honor your abortion.
Remember who you are.
Reintegrate yourself with your new perspective.
Live the life you made your choice for,
and if you can’t remember what it was,
make something up.
You are in control.
Your life is lived one choice after another.
We choose, we feel, we adapt, and we grow.
This is how we thrive.
