On Presence

Erica Saccente

All my friend ever wanted was my presence

because that is the ultimate way to give love. 

I hope my friend understands that my lack of presence wasn't about him

so much as it was about me and my habitual tendency to disembody and dissociate  

when feelings or situations become overwhelming. 

I'm on a lifelong quest to overcome this conditioning  

(perhaps we all are). 

I'm on a mission to be present with myself and others as much as possible, 

which basically means

being a beacon of Love for myself and others

and courageously facing Truth that comes from all directions

including the Truth that hurts  

and the Truth that liberates

and sometimes, those Truths are the same.
