Hello all.

The other day was feeling sad because in April it will be 7 yrs I have been in therapy. This is a good chunk of my life, I was hoping to be through by now. Fact is, I am still so messed up, I can not handle 2 days a week, had to return to 1 day. I see no light at the end of the tunnel for therapy.

However, I woke up this morning with a wonderful thought on my mind.
There are 2 major incidents in my life with family members that I regret not speaking my mind and standing up for myself. Telling it like is was.

Today, the perfect words were in my head, I am going to write them down possibly write 1 or 2 poems. This is gratifying. Not so much as if I were to have done it then, I know I could not have though.

The most gratifying part is knowing I am stronger, I can stand up to people know, not take manipulation, not be silent if someone has used me as pawn to get what they wanted from someone else, etc...

Going forward, I will be my own person in this sense. Freeing feeling indeed.

Peace
Trina

Congratulations Trina. Standing up for oneself is hard I think. It is for me anyway. But there are times we need to. I am glad you feel therapy is working. I have been going most of my life. I probably will always be in therapy. As long as I can afford it.

I am glad this is freeing. We all deserve to feel that. It is work. But well worth the effort.

Hugs to you my friend.
