    This is really helpful. Thank you! It makes sense that I minimized & blamed myself because it felt safer.

    I’ve had to remind myself of this over and over because I so bad want to “complete the healing” or “get over it” and it isn’t that easy. It is a process that sometimes takes forever and at other times goes quickly. More and more, I don’t see healing so much as an endpoint, but one that takes me further into the discovery of who I am.

    Walk away if need be from your abusers. I did it. Felt great.Took 3 years of therapy to do it. Worth the time and effort.
