I opened my emails today and read my daily inspiration. Boy, did it hit home -
As adult children, we are good - no, ingenious - at finding hiding places. Sometimes we hide behind our work by staying super busy. We hide in prayer itself - behind sweet-sounding words. We can choose to always be tired so we can hide in sleep. We can hide behind any of the "helper" roles by fixing others so we never have to fix ourselves. We can even make our life a hiding place by going through the emotions, saying all the right things, but never really encountering ourselves.
