Your past is whole and complete.
Nothing you’ve been through needs fixing.
Telling yourself what is broken denies its purpose in your life.
Flowers with missing petals aren’t broken.
Marriages with arguments aren’t broken.
Friendships with disagreements aren’t broken.
They are all here to show us a new way to see.
Abortion is part of your whole.
The experience happened for you.
No matter what you do next,
nothing is missing.
It never was,
and it never will be.
Wholeness isn’t in what was;
it’s in how you see what was.
