Name it to claim it: An Oprahism. The realization that --it's a thing. The defining moment when you take your experience that's been haunting you and pin it down to examine it because of its label. It begins to have an outline, a definition instead of a fog. It starts to show up in a pattern, in its complexity, so that the whole of it starts to make sense. This is the power of language and categories and knowledge. This is the fact that the truth can set you free, but only through awareness and the willingness to muddle through.
