“Pretend you’re a woman. Coming back to a place where you once were a girl. A place where you used to imagine life as an adult. Now you’re back. You’ve seen some shit. You’ve been through the fucking wringer. There have been relationships and hardships and blessings beyond belief. Diagnosis’, a baby that made you a mother, several jobs and homes down the road. You’re fierce. You’re experienced. This is a full circle moment. It’s real. Beautiful. Whole.”
