I am learning to be in the tender places.

The places where you can feel how much it could hurt before you even get close.

The places where who I was and who I am and who I am always becoming meet.

The places where I can touch the ways I have been broken and feel the ways I am getting better. 

I am trying to find these places more often because they quiet my mind and mend my heart.

I call these places the in-between because I am no longer there and I am not yet here.

Do you feel the same way about these places? Have you touched them too?
