wanted to tell everyone here and lurking that My gratitude for the day is :i
I know many are struggling with very difficult issues right now and i'm so glad to hear of the ones of you who are in therapy. It's a whole life journey isn't it?! I know i'm not thrilled that i'm not farther along in my journey then I feel I should be but once again I know that I have to do a lot of hard work to get where I want to be. I've started that journey and have made some progress and even tho it took so much courage I will have to go thru this many more times before I begin to heal... from my past. to go forward......
May God Bless you and walk before you in your journey.
And to you, Bonnie and SB - You are the apple(s) of His eyes...
I've been in therapy many, many years (taking breaks here and there along the way but even staying in contact and doing phone sessions when I lived out of state). I'm just now getting an inkling as to why it is taking so long to BEGIN healing...I am very blessed with a T who continues to encourage me and never gets tired of telling me that he believes me....I am believed. Three incredible words: "I believe you." I think that has been one of the most healing things someone can tell another person - I believe you.
Validation. Self-worth. Knowing you matter. Knowing you are worth the fight, even if it is the rest of your life. Soooo many tapes in our minds to replace with the truth. Is it any wonder therapy takes years? Brainwashing is not easy to undo.
I'm sorry. I'm rambling again..I better force myself to go to bed. I have an early morning.
