In the direct aftermath, it was like experiencing an entire ten years’ worth of growth, in a matter of months. Growth doesn’t occur independent of pain, sorrow, joy - every emotion imaginable. I had to go through all of it, and resist none of it. It’s a journey I will be on for the rest of my life “.
