Hi, Trisho. Nixie here, bringing you a review through random review option. You have the honor of being one of the ingredients in the activity above.
What a powerful piece you've penned. You must have been an author before joining WdC because your work is impressive.
The title caught my eye, and most definitely, the image. In the title, you might want to de-capitalize the [To] What a funny way to express myself. It sounds like the idiotic phrase, 'time to 'deplane'.
Back to the emotional, difficult part that I'm avoiding.
The personal take and the gentle care of the child was touching. I almost had to stop reading this because it rings too true. And there are too many things I don't want to bring to mind again. It's frightening and, for me, it doesn't help. Okay, well, sometimes. But often after thinking about what happened to people like us the darkness rushes back in, and the battle ensues all over again. You express my feelings in this sentence.
Stop procrastinating, finish your memoir. I know that you are afraid to relive the trauma.
You don't need the word [that] in your sentence.
If you saw your little girl sitting in a dark corner, I saw mine pressed against the far wall of a dark cave. It takes strength and courage to confront what's happened to a person and try to rebuild the image.
Absolute excellence in writing to yourself with compassion. I've fallen out of practice, and returned to trying to guilt myself to do the right thing. Because that works so well. You've reminded me of the attitude necessary to keep the doors shut. I like to think of cleaning out closets in my mind and then sweeping all the debris out. I've developed an army of coping skills.
Some of the spacing between sentences was off. Maybe you composed this using another writing platform, and in the copying process pieces fell out of place. It's not a big deal, but it's a shame not to have this work be perfect.
The word choices added impact to my impression of your work. This isn't something you dashed off without thought. (except I see no editing dates) If this came off the top of your head, you are going places with your abilities.
And that's where I'm ending this review because the ghosts are hovering. I will keep them out of my mind, and listen to your last line. "You got this." (Do you want a period after [this]?)
Parting comment. You can look here for information and perhaps make some new friends.
Leaving you in peace,
