What has helped the most is becoming vulnerable, and opening up myself, and letting people see me for who I am. Getting in touch with my feelings, and being able to feel my anger, sadness, stress, whatever, they were all the same feeling [in the past]. Now I can differentiate between what I am feeling. It feels so much better to be on solid ground emotionally. Then I can help. I have learned to always question my own feelings, I used to give advice based on what I thought was right rather than based on what I was feeling or what my daughter was feeling.
I really appreciate all the help you have given me. I cannot thank you enough. [tears] I did not expect this when I came here, but it has really been beneficial. You have changed my life.
