To Just Me:
by: Darlene Barriere - Webmaster

Healing and recovery are just that, heal-ing and recover-ing, meaning the present tense. The path is not on the flats; it's up and down, and it's littered with garbage and debris we must clear away in order to continue along the path. Try as we might to circumvent that debris, when we do, we are off the path and heading in a direction that is away from the healing road. I learned a very long time ago that we must go through the garbage and debris in order for healing to continue. That means allowing yourself to talk about and feel, really feel, the full range of emotions attached to what you've endured, painful as it is. But in a safe setting, like in a therapy session. I'm not an advocate of sharing with everyone all that you've endured and feel. That's reserved for the few who have proven to you they are trustworthy. Always remember that when you're sharing with a trusted therapist in a safe environment, you aren't in danger because the abuse is now over and done with. What's left are the emotions. Let them out. Cry as hard and as long as you need to. I cried seemingly endlessly when I was in therapy, but the tears were amazingly cleansing. Trust the process so that the healing can continue. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.
