A mixture of sadness, disappointment, and hopelessness. I wanted to run from it, bury it, drown it, numb it. Anything but have to FEEL it.

But I waited. I let the feeling wash over me. I FELT it. And it was okay. I didn't die. I wasn't destroyed by it. It was just a feeling. It spent the day with me, and then it passed.

I have been handling feelings this way for several years. But it still amazes me each time I survive another feeling.

I Survived My Feelings!

Will you remember me?
Don't let your life pass you by
Weep not for the memories

All right. Good self-recognition for getting through it.

(and hope tomorrow's feelings are better.)

You were able to identify the emotions and feelings and figured out a way to cope through these feelings. Abuse leaves us with debilitating memories and feelings. Learning to recognize and cope is part of the healing process.

Well done.

Writing with such grace and emotion. Jude, your feelings mirrored mine yesterday. I read them when I was distressed and just wanted you to know the comfort they brought to me was greatly appreciated. Thanks.

We have already been through and survived the hardest thing ever, the abuse. Now we just have to learn to heal and you just gave us a great exemplar of how we should deal with our feelings. Thank you. Mike
