New here.

Recommended Posts

Just wanted to say hello I am new here. I was looking for a place for some support as I start my journey facing the past is haunting me now until the age of 45. My spouse doesn’t believe in the process of therapy scares him when he sees me cry. So this week has been a hard one. I’ve been back in therapy since April. I’ve now finally decided that it is time to start working through the trauma which of course means speaking about it and reliving it and facing it. I am hoping at some point he will see the benefit also for the both of us. However until then I will have to find others to try to help me through this and keep me going so that I don’t back out again. My only hope is to have peace for the last 20 years of my life instead of the hell I’ve been living  For the first 45.

The process of healing is key in us starting to heal, it is not easy & we sometimes need that extra help to be able to free ourselves from within. I have a past that has been haunting me for YEARS & just last week I decided to go to my first therapy session & I am so glad I took that step, if you need to talk I am here to listen.
