I am terrified of feeling vulnerable bc it doesn't feel safe but that is exactly what I have/need to be doing in order to open up and heal from the past.
Milestone 50! I need to learn to take it easy on myself I can be a bit of perfectionist and that causes my stress and worries to be amplified.
@Chocolateandcakes Congrats on reaching milestone 50! We can definitely be hard on ourselves. While it is nice to be at our best, it can get stressful when we overdo it. You show awesome self awareness on this issue, and it will definitely help you in the long run and have less to worry about. Well done, and thank you for sharing!
@GlenM, I've learned that I cannot control the world without, and my reaction is the one thing I CAN control.
Milestone 29 for me. I'm slowly learning to not blame myself for the miscarriage. I am telling myself it was out of my hands and that I'll be ok and that I will have a chance at being a mother.

Step 359! What a journey and this app has helped me so much. Right now I'm working on taking more time for my needs and not feeling guilty when I do.
I feel ashamed about myself and scared opening up to people in group treatment - so the peers dont talk to me. but - it is NOT bc they dont like me or i am bad or flawed - i look unapproachable and not friendly bc of my own self judgment and fear. This is something I need to work on in order to take the next step to get better and to be able to open up in groups.
@blissedNblessed Hi, I am so sorry to hear you are having trouble gettting close with others in your group. Once you open up, I am sure you will be more approachable, and they will see the real you. You’ve got this! Thanks for checking in, and best wishes!
My SH scars are my story written on skin that I can not speak.I deserve to get rid of the pain and speak.
I was NOT the author of my childhood - but from here on out - I AM the author of my life, how I think, feel , process and react. I create my story now.
