The Thrive Global Community welcomes voices from many spheres on our open platform. We publish pieces as written by outside contributors with a wide range of opinions, which don’t necessarily reflect our own. Community stories are not commissioned by our editorial team and must meet our guidelines prior to being published.

For all who suffer,
or feel pain, sadness and/or loss
who cannot see a way out of their current situation
or feel alone, not listened to, and/or afraid 
i am here for you to pour all of your pain and suffering
into this space i am holding for you.

keep pouring more and more into this space
until you have no more left to give
and sit with me when you have nothing left to give
and feel what it feels like to be free from all of that pain.

and i introduce you to one of my favourite characters 
in my book, The Mosaic.

“I come every week to take away the things you no longer need. l put them in my truck, grind them up, and drive them away.
They have served you well, and sometimes it is hard to let them go. They seem to have become a part of you, but now it is time to let them go. Bring them to me. If you cannot lift them on your own, I will help you.

What once served you now clutters your way. I am here to help you. Let me take these things from you.”

as a kid, i always wanted to be a trashman
i would sit out every friday and watch them 
drive up in their truck
pick up our trash cans and empty them into their truck.

i am so happy now to see
that what i always dreamed of as a kid
has become my reality.
this is what i do for people in my Soul Sessions
i pick up all the trash that people no longer want
grind it up and drive it away.
contact me for more information.
