You are in the right place. It is SO difficult. I feel like it’s 1 step forward 3 steps back. My husband and I have been “separated” for 9 months. I wish it was over but it keeps dragging on. Finding this group and Rita Aken Hickman has taught me to really begin the focus on ME. Heal ME. Each day I put one foot in front of the other and be grateful for what I have. I have good days. And I have bad days. We are here for each other.
I was sexually abused as a child. I was taken to therapy, but it seemed like I never really learned to deal with the abuse. I actually always thought I was fine. As soon I started to talk to Rita about the abuse, I realized I was far from ok. Each week I learned something new about the way this experience had shaped me and ways to work through them. She encouraged me to talk to family, which I had never really done before. The robotic therapists I spoke with before made me feel like just another case to them, but with Rita, I felt like I was talking to an unbelievably knowledgeable friend. I still have a ways to go with healing, but she showed me that there’s hope.
Just wanted to tell ya that you’ve helped me so much!! It’s amazing how your message resonates with me…It’s like you’re reading my story. I did the pillow thing that you showed me, WOW! Working on healing myself and you are a GODSEND! I am grateful xo. Have a wonderful day beautiful.
