When we believe we can't change, we can't. But when we believe we can, then the possibilities are endless. You're still very angry over what happened to you as a child. I understand that anger so very well. It's misplaced anger. What you're doing now with others is standing up in a way that you couldn't as a child. Trouble is, you're standing up to the very people who love you, not the ones who abused you. Give yourself permission to feel what you feel, but do so in a way that is productive. A way that doesn't hurt the ones you care so much about. The goal is to release the anger without lashing out, release it in a safe way. Perhaps you can set up a couple of pillows and pound at them in those moments. Or do something physical that helps you to vent, like something athletic. Just make a conscious choice—and it is a choice—not to hurt anyone, including yourself. And stay with your singing and music. Encourage it. Embrace it. Enjoy it. And then use that to make what you lived purposeful. I think writing a musical would be incredibly cathartic for you. I encourage you to go from "wanting" to do it to actually "doing" it. I send you love, light and healing energy, Emily. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.
