I am finally able to come back and I say hi to everyone ! I have missed you but I had to handle a lot of horrible stuff this summer. V and I are still apart, I miss him but I realized we had a lot of work to do with ourselves before being able to do the essential: talking !
I have made tremendous progress and I am proud to say that I am getting there in my healing.
I feel I am not a victim anymore, I don't behave like a victime and I am able now to stand up for myself. Consequently I have also integrated the limits or borders. I can distinguish the difference between me and others. And that my friends is quite something ! I have closed the doors with my parents, I have finished the painful mourning and I feel free.
As an art therapist I had a fantastic time at the Healing the healers retreat. I feel much more confident in my work, I feel strong. I am going to the male survivor conference in Galway at the end of September and will be running a day workshop of art therapy (theatre and dance) for survivors in Leeds at the end of November. In between I will be in Montreal (28th of Sept-30th of October) for my internship at CPIVAS, a survivor centre located in Laval.
V. for what I know has made tremendous progress. I still hope we will be able to meet again. I miss him, I love him and I am proud of him.
I wish you all the very best, you deserve it for sure !
