Whats in a name?

Posted by niki , 09 January 2011 · 12 views

Hearing his name anywhere is so incredibly hard! It doesn't have to be him...hearing the name associated to anyone makes me cringe! yesterday it was my cashiers name and today I saw it written out on a commercial...twice!. I know its something extremely small but some how it still has a large affect on me and makes everything seem impossible! my friend said I should desensitize myself from his name by writing it over and over but, I don't know if I want to be numb to his name? what he did to me was terrible yet I don't want to forget him or what he did...its a huge part of my life now, even if its terrible...

I don't think you should desensitize yourself from the name until you feel you want to, if you're having doubts then maybe this is not the time.

I struggle with this too, my last abuser's last name is a well-known brand name I see everywhere, and a boy in my class has the same first name.

I wish you all the best,

Take care,

Do

Thank you! I hope things get easier for you too!
