Cool News

Post by FrumSurvivor » Tue Apr 23, 2013 3:22 am

I did something really awesome on the way home from my t today. I drew a horrible picture of the horrible person responsible for all the horribleness in my life, tore him up into tiny shreds, and sealed them in an envelope. On my way home I waited for the subway to come, and when I saw it approaching, I let the envelope fall onto the tracks. The train came... and ran over that scoundrel!! It felt awesome.

That is AWESOME, FrumSurvivor! I'm just jealous I don't have a subway so I could do the same thing! You're getting there, girl, step by step. Keep moving forward. We're here cheering you on.

That is cool frum survivor!

Way to celebrate and let go all at once. Sometimes these sorts of private actions are the most meaningful ways of moving on and acknowledging that growth.

This Positive Transitions section of isurvive is my absolute favorite. It proves to all of us that change is possible. This section is proof that things may not be perfect to be better. Also they don't always have to stay exactly the way they have always been.

I saw a cool quote tonight: New beginnings are often disguised as painful endings.

Wishing you warm and pleasant new beginnings,
Harmony

BB, Harmony, and w1shin0nstars - thanks! It was for sure one of the most awesome 'little' things I've done, and it cracks me up just thinking about it.
Another thing I did last week - I had a really really tough session - I had to talk a lot and walked out feeling pretty ashamed. So I sat down and 'drew' the shame (nothing special - just hard scribbles on a paper; it also helped get my energy out), crumpled it up, and threw it into the closest public garbage can, so I knew it would be disposed of really soon. That also helped - even without a subway, BB! It makes it tangible and I feel in control to be able to get rid of it.

That subway trick makes me laugh! I threw a vile book sent to me by my FOO about false memories in a Huge stinking Dempsey Dumpster. After a tearful therapy session. I let the heavy top clang down with a loud Thump!!

Hello FrumSurvivor

Yesterday I wrote a long letter to my FOO
Then read and re-read it and said it aloud before destruction
Feel.a bit lighter today

Thanks for the idea, is empowering
