Before After

My First Response to My Call to My Friends on EP on Being Nice to Oneself

Yesterday was the first day I did this intentionally for myself.

Something I did for myself to aid in relaxation and treating myself was to go to the library and check out some books and DVDs. I got Letters to My Daughters by Maya Angelou on tape and in book format, The Lucky One by Nicholas Sparks, Finding Your Way Home: A Soul Survival Kit by Melodie Beattie, Home by Marilynne Robinson, and the two movies on DVDs were "21", "Proof" and "Becoming Jane."

Instead of slamming myself for some way I was feeling, I allowed myself to cry and be vulnerable, and then got news I was approved for additional services through insurance. I was talking to my primary care physician about having just left an abusive relationship, and he commended me on getting out of the relationship. He said that there is a long history of abuse with me from child sexual abuse to being domestically abused, and the road to recovery is going to be long and hard but I and my little son Tien-Tien are worth that road to wellness. It broke my heart to hear that. It honestly did. If this is what God requires of me, then I will gladly bear this cross and show others how God can transform pain, sorrow and heartache into tears of joy and happiness.

My Respects to All of You....
Lillie Girl

excellent

I love that you are doing somethings for yourself. I definitly have set that as a goal as well. I too am a survivor of abuse and yes it is a long road of healing, but it is possible. Nancy
