The people who would be glad about this simply do not know it. I wouldn’t wish it on my worst enemy, because I do know it. You have survived. Now you just need a hand and some support so you can begin to thrive in your life. It is hard work, but you can do it, WITH the RIGHT support. These people you talked to were a temporary fix. But one day you will wake up and those awful burdens — shame and guilt — will not be with you. You will wonder where they went. You will feel a shift. It’s hard to imagine. But it is the absolute truth. It happened to me. I know of some great programs and methods that will help you. Let me know and I will send them to you. I know the path I took and I know the points that were helpful. More importantly I know what did not work and I can tell you about all of it and why. I’ve already navigated this mine field. Lots of us have. We are here to help.
