Nobody said this would be easy...
But we can get through it together.

You may be feeling lost, alone, isolated, and frightened. It may be hard to trust other people because of what has happened to you. You might even be very angry at people, even well-meaning folks who want to see you get better. Getting to the point where you want to see and be around other people might take a while, because your feelings are so acutely sensitive right now. But it does get better, and if you have someone who can support you through this difficult time, it can be a lot easier than doing it all by yourself.


Maybe today can be the day that you reach out and let someone get a little closer to you, so that whatever pain you are experiencing can be held tenderly and understood better. Many clients have told me that just having someone who cares and won't judge them makes them feel so much better. Being told to "get over it" and "man up" or "grow up" makes us feel worse, not better. You won't be told that with me. There is no deadline for you to get better, only what other people expect and demand of you. You are in control of your healing. When you remember this, it becomes a lot less frightening and painful.
