10 days after the emotional realization of what happened to me 30 years ago, I feel sad and I am worried for being sad, man these emotions are coming and going and I am not used to that and I really don't know what to do, my old ways of medicating my feelings aren't an option anymore, so I have to sit with this and feel it I suppose. On the bright side I have never been so in peace being alone, I still have ups and down but is not that constant overwhelming sensation of my world crumb...
Good things are ahead!
A little sad this morning...hope it gets better as the day goes on
I feel like sharing and opening up is kind of like opening your eyes in the sun when you've been in the dark for a long while. It burns you for a bit and is uncomfortable. But once you are used to it, it is bright and it is beautiful and it is worth it.
