This is so beautifully written. I love your voice! Powerful and compassionate.
Regardless of what these judgmental commenters and the seemingly tone deaf therapist have said to try to invalidate you, you’ve done so much for survivors just by continuing to write. And you are also doing so much for yourself, which is what’s important.
How you approach relationships may come off a certain way to others, but this is your healing journey, not theres! I love your self validating acknowledgement of this idea interwoven with this accountability for a therapist who lacks a holistic approach. I’m curious to see what she has to say in response to your comment!
Exceptional piece! Thank you for sharing! ❤️
