Jesse healed me
I was a really broken person when I met him.
It took a lot of love to heal me.
I had some really deep-rooted issues.
I didn't like myself very much. I was convinced that no man would ever like me. I couldn't give any genuinely desirable man a chance.
I couldn't be myself around a man. I put up a great, big wall. No man was allowed to see me in my natural state.
I had felt this way for...oh, my whole life. There wasn't a time I could remember when I hadn't felt this way. I'm talking, as far back as kindergarten and before then.
I felt this way very strongly. It didn't even occur to me that it could be different for me one day. I was so sure that I would be this way forever.
So it took great love to heal me, later in life.
Jesse put in a lot of time and care.
I don't know why he wanted to heal a broken person who had nothing to offer him...but he did.
