Counseling Today

Today I saw a counselor for me, not to figure out him, but to help me know how to deal with it all! And oh was it enlightening....and he confirmed things I knew, but needed to hear from someone on the outside. My parents, my friends, my coworkers were all "tired" of hearing about the horrible things my AH did, and they didn't understand why I just didn't walk away. IT got to the point where I SO needed to talk to someone, and for me counseling was the answer. And wow....did it help. I feel like I can "see" reality for myself for what it is...that's it - nothing more. I feel like the counselor helped me to understand some why's about myself and how I make decisions. He confirmed so much of what I believe and how I felt...that I feel strong enough and confident enough to be happy and strong and intelligent was a great experience! I wish I would have gone before now....but I'll take what I can get......

It is SUCH a great feeling to be validated, isn't it?
To talk to a real live person and have them tell you that you're not crazy, and the madness is not your fault.
It's like a giant weight coming off the shoulders.

I am so happy you found a good counselor!
