I know this is your first week here_ it can be a lot of process and feel overwhelming at times. Listen to your gut and wiser self- being aware of our destructive patterns is the first step to moving past them towards healthy building of our lives.
This last bit-building healhy patterns and a good life is uncomfortable- I am used to and comfortable with the old status quo and defenses I formed in reaction to the abuse. I fool myself that some form of control or knowledge over the bad stuff I've done is enough- that is still playing defense.
It's about playing offense and racking up wins one at a time that I am committed to doing-
I'd say you are starting to do that!
Welcome again and I hope you feel safe and supported here.
