Sending love back to you, @OrigamiFlower. I know it’s been a while since you wrote this. I can relate to living in a dreamlike state and having a memory come insistently back to around. I think when this happens to me the dreamlike state is a result of most of my faculties being devoted to the memory that I’m processing. I wish you well on your healing journey.
My heart goes out to you. I send my support, for what it's worth. I wanted to say I hear you, and I wonder, if you want to ask yourself what does it mean to you if you do not call it a slip up? And I want to say well done on almost eight months of not self harming. That matters. If you did it again, it still matters. That time is not cancelled out. It counts. Every effort counts. I hope you can start again and keep trying. I'm rooting for you.
There are many types of force, and force is violence. Words can be violent, and looks, and violence can be psychological, like when someone bigger, older, or in power forces something on someone smaller, younger, or powerless, and they have to find a way to deal with it in their mind so that it does destroy them.
@Lady Anonymous I’m sorry for the reasons that brought you here. I’m proud of you for taking action and joining this forum. I just joined recently, and so far it has been a big help to me. I relate to the struggle to find a voice and changing the outcome so much. I’m relating to your pie, too. I learned how to make bread sometime in the past few years and it feels good to create something like that, kind of grounding and affirming, to me.
