Monday was anger and TONS of anxiety.

Tuesday was peace of mind that I not only had counseling, but would be staying at a friend's house out of town for the night.

Wednesday is peace of mind (again) that I won't be staying alone again until sometime next week smilewinkgrin smilewinkgrin smilewinkgrin I belive there's even a little excitement!

Yes, I got screwed over (filtered my language), but it's time to move on. I am working on ME, taking care of ME. I am learning more about Courtney. Trying new things, taking adventures. Stepping outside of my box. Really living life. Well, that's the plan at least. I know lots of things about myself and can confidently and honestly say I love and am proud of who I am. Both counselors said that is amazing to know so young... so go me!

God has given me many gifts and I am learning more about myself so I can best use those gifts to help others; that is my true passion: helping others. I have a knack for writing and after my session last night, I may actually want to write a book one day. My group therapist suggested a blog... I think I like the idea of that.

I'm sure there will be some bad days but know what?? Like Karen always says, today I am focusing on the present. So, can't be concerned with those future bad/sad days... just deal with it when it comes.

Thanks for all the support. Ya'll are so wonderful.

Side note: Sometimes, don't ya just wanna run around crazy, screaming at the top of your lungs about how horrible someone is?!?! I keep telling myself... "must be responsible adult, must be responsible adult..." hehehe :)

This is such a wonderful post. Even though we get wrapped up with other things, we have to keep working on us. Sometimes that is really hard to do. But you are doing it. One day at a time, staying focussed. I had to use medication to help me focus. But it works. But I am good at ignoring things I don't want to deal with. Usually they just go away, but not always. Then I do what I have to to deal with it. I am so proud of you Courtney!!! Keep up the great work!!!

Hugs, Karen
