I had this flash of happiness and competence yesterday. Not just a clear memory of life before Reeducation, but the real thing.
…I was able to shut the mistreatment off completely, and also the idea that I am not qualified to do what I am doing.
…This was possible in part because of having had a good work day on Thursday.
…The Buddhist texts and the vodun candles were helping with this. You have to be friends with yourself.
…It is possible to live yet better.
