I'm new here and want to share but I'm also very afraid. I have told some of my history over the years but there are other things that I've never spoken of. I've read that in order to really start healing, you need to let it out and speak your truth but when I think of sharing these other, secret things, I feel myself shutting down. I also have bpd so struggle with very intense emotions. I am in a much better state of mind than in the past, take medication that helps immensely and do have a strong support system now. I have had a bit of counselling in the past and it's been noticed that I don't look at the person I'm sharing difficult things with. Is that normal? If I can finally manage to tell my stories once, will it become easier?
Ultraviola, I'm also new here and am struggling with this very thing myself. I have told some people over the years about some of my history but am now thinking of telling the rest. I feel like I'm afraid to say some things that I haven't spoken of in over thirty years since it happened but also I feel like I want to finally. That it's really the only way for me to be able to heal eventually. It's definitely a very personal decision and is an incredibly difficult one to make. I wish you all the best in whatever you decide to do as that will ultimately be what's best for you.
Thank you MovingForward20. I just joined and am once again trying to begin my healing. I have been wanting to find books to read to help myself but have never known how to look and your recommendation will be my first. Take care.
