old pictures

John said that as he sorts through things it makes him sad to see old pictures of us. I asked why and he said we were so much closer then. I thought for a while and said but I feel like I was only half alive then (because I have since done a lot of work to heal from childhood trauma). He acknowledged that. I wish he had more ability to join me in that new life.
