Hi ws,

You are most welcome. :)

I’ve had two therapists, both were compassionate people, but I initially wished that I could find a therapist who could relate with me with their own experiences so I could learn from them & see that I could actually get past my issues by seeing that others had done the same. I’m actually glad that neither could because I don’t wish for anyone to have had those experiences in common with me. This is why I think this forum is a really great resource & I wish I would have discovered it sooner. I think it’s good for any of us to see what recovering can look like. I wish I could completely overcome everything, but I am hopeful that I will. Either way, I like reading about people who are doing better than I am with moving forward with their lives while I am hopeful that anything I can offer will be helpful to those who are not as far into their recovery. Sometimes it’s really hard to look into the mirror, so to speak, sometimes it’s not as hard. And sometimes I just don’t have it in me to try to look & I go back to burying my thoughts because I’m just not up to it. But I want to say that sometimes, while I’m aware of what I’ve made it through, I don’t even need to look at it. Sometimes I’m just living without thinking about what I came through. I’m just living. Like “normal” people do haha!

Absolutely! Here’s to moving ahead, no matter how much or how little! Progress to any degree is progress!! And here’s to being oblivious that we even have a need to celebrate progress!

I’m wishing for peace for all of us<3 :D
