Not all counselors are created equally. The right "fit" is critical in therapy, otherwise trust isn't developed; and without trust, there is no progress. But also remember, therapy is work. Grueling work. You will only reap from it what you decide you want to put into it. If you only want to talk about the weather, then you'll go no further than rain, sunshine or a cloudy day. When you're ready, truly ready to do the work required, only then will the "stuff" come to the surface to be dealt with, and then let go of you. it's your choice. Thank you for sharing with my visitors and me.

My heart still empatises with you
by: maurice

Oh Lottie, I sure hope you have undressed the masks that you found (find) yourself trapped in from the abuse you suffered: I sure hope you found a good counsellor who allowed you to push back the heavy and dark petals that were still leaning heavily in on you: Here on Darlene's site you had the courage to write in lines of poetry your heart pain: the mental stress of all you suffered and it's effects on your life: Hi you are wonderful: you are beautiful: I compare myself to a sunflower: I lived up to the age of thirty three with half that flower not blossoming: Then I spoke with a counsellor and ver gradually I pushed back each petal, it was a slow process, a painful one, but I sure won and now one or two of the more painful memories and effects of what I would regard as mild abuse compared to the many more who suffered alot more from their sadistic, cruel, sexual/physical abuse and yes the more difficult one to let go the mental and emotional abuse they had to endure: Lottie: it ain't easy but I do believe you are aware of that: Staying silent with your counsellor won't move you on: Please stick with counselling and if neccessary change as there may be one out there that you will trust: The most important person to trust is yourself, know and believe you can and will make the difference when you take one step at a time with the pained child within you from your abuse years: Read my comment previously: I want what is the best for you Lottie: Darlene too want's you to move on and begin living your life to the full: I will: I can: I must: because I am WORTH it: start blossoming where you are at: I am a sunflower it is a great flower to be: Shove back the petals of your life and flower: Smile, smile, I hope you have found a good and true friend your own age and gender. You'll be fine and a winner in 2011:
