Today, I wanted to give a shout to my therapist. I met you back in September, I think that you are wonderful and you truly helped me to know that all of the things I was feeling are completely normal.
Now because of Holidays, kids being sick and crazy schedules, I haven’t even seen you since before Christmas. For some reason, it just hasn’t worked out for us to see each other, but I will be back in your office, sitting on that couch sometime in the near future, I promise.
That being said in the 6 times that we did see each other, you gave me great tools for my well-being. You also helped me to embrace my issues instead of pushing them away. You made me realize how OK it was that I still had scars and baggage from my past life, even though my current life is great. I still have my moments, I try counting and breathing when everything seems to be spinning out of control.
In the meantime, I blog. Blogging helps me so much. Not just my writing, which is truly cathartic, but the writing of others. You helped to encourage that. When I told you that I blogged, you said that you loved that idea.
Thank you for talking me through my pain. For making me confront all of the things I thought I was supposed to be over and done with, but hadn’t yet healed from. You have truly helped me and I know that you were the right therapist for me.
