I have found the courage to start therapy.
I have learnt how to take time out for me.
I have started to recover memories about my childhood, good and bad.

I came back to read this since I am having a not so great morning (ok week, well month).
I am glad I came back to see what I have done. I am also inspired by what everyone else has done.
I know there are more of you who have accomplishments. List them here so you can come back as I have and see them in writing. It's a great feeling.
the shameless self-booster (hey, there is no rule against boosting your own thread :biggrin: )

I have let go of the responsibility. I am not at fault for what happened to me. Neither are any of you. It feels so wonderful to say that.
Come on now. You all have accomplishments. Every single one of you. Write them here. It feels so good to come back and read my own. It feels great to read about everyone else's too.
Love you all (now start responding with those accomplishments!)

Well, the answer would have been yes because I have another accomplishment.
I made it through my first "real" anniversary! :-) Of course, it was the whole month of November since I don't know the date but I made it. :)
Come on everyone. Join the party. :-)

I am replying to make this a red dot thread. :biggrin:
I don't have any healing accomplishments to add right now but I want to tell all of you that I am so proud of you. How many of you thought there was nothing positive about where you are or what you have done? This proves otherwise. You are all an inspiration to me.
Keep up the good work healing AND the good work listing your accomplishments.
So, so , so , so proud of you all.

2. I've been in T
3. I know I'm not alone
4. I have learned to forgive on certain levels
5. I learned that I do have more strength then I realized
6. I've been able to reach out to others for help
There are probably more accomplishments, but these are the only ones that came to mind right now

this was a MAJOR step for me.

I am being more open-minded in the dating process.
I am letting myself get excited about dating and being interested in someone again.
Today, when I heard those "criticizing voices" telling me that "I can't" or "this is a bad thing" I stopped what I was doing and wrote in my journal... they went away!
Thanks to everyone else who has posted! Keep it coming!

*I have stuck with T despite it being extremely tough and painful. †And I have learned to trust my T and asked her to hold my hand in my journey. I'm still going :)
*I have a beautiful niece and nephew who I am able to love without fear, and who tell me they love me cos i dont tell lies or break promises (how cool is that)
* Although its difficult I try to see good in the world.
* I fought my way out of a psychiatric service which had me over medicated and institutionalised. †
*I have found a doctor I can trust.
*I trust my instinct
*I'm not afraid to be vulnerable and have learned to nurture that part of me.
*I let myself feel sad and hurt, because i need to.
*My self care is exceptionally good most of the time (enormous for me)
* I have a sense of humour and a streak of sarcasm that just refuses to die :)
*I have learned that I am a survivor and deserve to survive. †But I have also learned that a Survivor is not all I am.
*Here I am at pandys :)
Hugs to everyone,
love always, scardy xxxx
