Counselling can help...
by: Darlene Barriere - Webmaster

Ramesh, I recommend some form of counselling to help you with "putting this (your past) behind you." You see, it's not so much the memories that are the problem; it's your thoughts about what happened to you that cause the turmoil in your life. As long as you try to get those thoughts out of your mind, they will continue to haunt you. You can't let go of thoughts, Ramesh; thoughts let go of you, but only when you question those thoughts and then reverse them. A professional counsellor can help you with that.

A few weeks ago I offered an approach on a particular story that you might find useful: Krystle's story. The process is the same regardless of the "unhealthy" thought you are dealing with, so I suggest you try applying it to your unhealthy stressful thoughts. Again, a counsellor should be able to go through this process with you. But it still means you've got some work to do. There is no getting around that. Look at it from this perspective: You've already gone through the worst of it and you are no longer being abused. You are now in a safe place. Now it's up to you. Do it for your own sake, and for the sake of your children; it's one of the best gifts you can possibly give them.

Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.
