Keeping It Together

The last time I spoke with my counselor, she said that I seem to have it together.  The first thing that went through my mind was, “I do?”.

The reason I say this is because I don’t at all feel like I have it together.  For one, I never have time to do the housework (I go to school full time and work part time), except for taking care of my pets.

How do you get over being betrayed again & again?

I keep asking myself why I still attempt to let people in when all they do is betray my trust?  

An update of sorts (and hope for some advice?)

I haven't been here to post in well over a year. I do come and read often, and send you all my heartfelt well wishes, pride in each of you every time you share, and hope for continued healing for us all. 

Coming The Way

It was last 19 November that I posted my first blog on this site. I read through my blogs and I see the way I've come. So far, I think that I'm heading in the right direction. I love writing here because I just get to write what I'm feeling, I get to ramble and I love hearing from you. I've seen how much I've grown and learned in the past eleven months. All I can say is "Wow...".

Passing Along the Comfort

This time of the year is significant for me. When I first told my mom about the nightmares that I was having, she told me not to tell anyone. It was four years later when I finally broke down and told someone what was bothering me. That's why this time is so special for me. I think of it every year.

Things Could Be Better

I'm sorry I've been away for so long (well, long for me because I used to post on here all of the time, even though I constantly check the site for new blogs and comments). I haven't been doing that well lately.

Update to Should I give her a chance

I posted this as a reply by mistake so i am reposting as a new blog.

Being a Grown Up

I am about to begin my senior year of college, and often joke about what I want to be when I grow up. I am currently a psychology major with a minor in political science. I just recently took the LSAT exam and passed (barely). It is time for me to stop joking and seriously decide what I want to do with the rest of my life.

Where am I now?

It has been a long road, but time has made me understand my suffering. I have learned to be happy, and still live with my past. When the landslide hit a few years ago I never thought I would truth I'm not sure I wanted to. It took sure will power to face the family that abused me, and it took something greater than what I am to be sitting here today.

A New Start, A New Life, A New Strength!

I have been off of this site for about a year and how my life has changed in that time! I am a survivor of sexual abuse at the hands of my father 35 years ago. I blogged on here that I was really struggling through counselling, and with my relationship of nearly 20 years to an alcoholic, who had no clue or interest in how I was coping with the rigours of therapy!!! I decided to call time on that relationship, and change my job from being a Prison Officer to becoming a Nursing Assistant.
