I'm sorry that you are going through all of this, LLT. Like Misty said we are really good at beating ourselves up over what happened but we would tell the complete opposite to someone else who had a similar experience. Do you know why that is? Because deep down we know the truth, that it's not the our/victims fault, it wasn't something they/we wanted, and that it was wrong. The blame falls on the shoulders of the perp.
You are worthy of getting help. You are worthy of therapy. (((hugs))) *Drapes the fluffy pink blanket over your shoulders and sits with you. Offering you a hot chocolate and my monkey to cuddle with.* View Thread
I just wanted to welcome you to the board but like Misty said, I'm sorry for why you're here. It can be quiet around here but there are regulars that pop in. We are all in different stages of healing, but we are here to help one another as much as possible on the journey. I'm so sorry for everything that you've gone through... If you feel like you need to vent, talk to someone, or just throw something out into the void to get it out this is a safe place to do it.
Please take care of yourself and have a good night.
(((Hugs))) Take the time you need and stay in your safe place so that you can rest and regroup. You are a survivor it's just that you're in the downswing right now. With time and help you'll be able to come up out of it soon. Please be safe and take care. We are around when/if you need us. *Sits next to you and brings you an extra blanket, some hot chocolate, and Foxy to keep us company.*View Thread
(((Big Hugs))) I hope you feel a little better today. Like Misty already said it's okay and good to find ways to express your anger in safe ways. I haven't broken plates before but I've done the pillow beating.
Please be gentle with yourself and take care.(((hugs)))
