Everyone heals from trauma at a different rate. The fact that you're in therapy is a very good thing. But you must go to each session with the idea that you're going to work at finding the path of healing and recovery. If you go into your sessions deciding to clam up and not discuss what happened to you and the feelings you have as a result, then all your doing is burying and prolonging the trauma and pain. We can't circumvent what we've been through; we must bring what we've been through to the surface and allow ourselves to really and truly feel all the emotions attached to what we've been through. Only then will those emotions let us go. Trust in the process, Abby. Be prepared to work and to go through some grueling sessions. In this way, you will be your own rescuer. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.
