When we feel safe, it is reflected in our eyes, our voice, and our body language. He also came to see that his slowly but surely increasing waistline had been bothering him more than he'd cared to admit; and that a part of him (very logically) did blame the increase on his frequent focus at work. This rage was intergenerational trauma being passed like a wild wire of toxic masculinity awaiting someone to wake up and learn to wield it, release it, and heal it. You have to look at it as if it is not your problem, so that you can stand aside and see the whole fabric of it. Now, I saw azure damselflies lowering their mates into the water to lay eggs, then pulling them out again, and large reds resting on the boardwalks.
