You're coming out any day now and I want to apologize in advance if I screw you up. It won't be intentional, and intention matters. No one gets out of childhood without some kind of trauma. And that kind of damage, it makes people put up walls. Make bad choices. Do bad things. But, when I screw you up, There is a possibility for you to come back from it. But, you can't do it alone. If you wanna heal, seek out people, find safe harbor. And if you're hurt, by people who love you, you have to be open to being loved again. Find just a small handful of friends who you like and you trust and, and if you're really lucky, find someone who gets you and loves you and take shelter in them. And provide them with shelter, because there's a pretty good chance they're damaged too. You're gonna be okay. We'll be okay. We'll figure this out together. I'm a quick study. You can be anything you wanna be in this life. Well, any kind of lawyer you wanna be.
