When the past comes calling, no one wants to answer. It’s tempting to forget about it altogether and hope it will go away.
The line between finding and losing yourself is often a slippery slope. One misstep could slide you into places you never intended on going. Jesse discovered this in what he thought was only him putting himself up for the winter. It evolved into something much more – a journey into his past. And during it, he learned the best way in healing old wounds is to give them air. Jesse’s ran so deep he forgot not only his past, but his present, and future. Only the patient love of his family could tackle him, tie him up, and bring him back to them. And like the wayward son, sometimes the only way we allow other people to help us is when we have no idea of who they are.
Time might not heal all wounds, but it does sometimes help in managing them.
