The Butterfly Circus

I have learned to pay attention when a series of similar events occur within the same day; they usually point me in a direction or reveal a fateful truth. So when I received three emails on Thursday morning all with similar content, I tuned in. One was from a young woman dealing with anxiety, guilt, shame, and the subsequent self-loathing; one was from a mother who was struggling with confusion and a feeling of helplessness as her child fought against mental illness; and one was from a middle-aged woman who was struggling with self-doubt, insecurity, and harsh judgment of her worth—from herself and others. In the midst of these emails, I also received an email from my youngest sister that contained a link to a short film, The Butterfly Circus, that had been recommended to her by a friend. The message of the film was exactly what the other women needed to hear.
