Ugg I am just feeling so great for you right now. I know how it feels now to look in the mirror and say Hey I AM a good person, and Darnit I deserve to be happy.
You go right ahead and pat yourself on the back, we all will give ya a pat too,and many hugs.
You have had a hard journey, that is what I liken my recovery over this past year too. I have been here almost a year in a few days, I it is amazing the change in me. I feel free, I feel happy, I feel younger, I feel connections with real people who give me love. You are one of those Ugg, for everything you are getting in your self recovery, you are passing it right on to us, and it helps us to be stronger too.
Like Introspections says,,,,,,,,,,, what is normal?? I have started to see that we are all really normal once we get away from the evil WT telling us we are not , by making us feel unworthy, depressed, lonely, a misfit, a not good enough. They even lead many to the brink of total insanity. I am not kidding , there was a time I was caring for 3 small children, one was very sick, the other screamed all the time, all the WT cared about was meetings and field service. THey didnt care about the person , as long as the mags were getting placed.
We are all normal with our own little quirks, and that is the spice of life. I have many friends here who I could write their most outstanding qualities that make me love them so much, and some of those things could be considered odd by somes perception. I consider myself a little on the fridges or what is consider normal............lol........ so do many here i bet, but I am glad to be me.
Ugg, I am just so happy that you will soon find your place in life that will make you even happier.
DOn't give up , along this journey of healing there are set backs, you have seen mine as well, but getting it out and taking the one step forward , will get you there.
SO happy and *jumping up and down* for Ugg................ love ya hon............Dede
