Getting Through : Dealing

Now What?

I had to write this but you don't have to read it.

It's been 6 years since I left and while I know where I want to be I've had a tough time geting there. I used to belittle people who had to go "find themseves" but lately I did just that. I found the real me, not the scared little girl that had been raped, beaten, put on silence restriction, not the wife who let her husband tell her how to dress, where to work, what to cook, who she could and could not have as friends, but the me that is bold and not afraid to stand up for what I want. The me that doesn't need some one to tell me I'm doing the right thing.

Let me just say that after 27 years of somebody telling me what to do it's wonderful to have found myself (even if my baby sister had to help me do it)

I know how you feel. I was pretty confused after I left the group too, it took me a good year and a half to get back on my feet and 'discover myself'. At one point I thought I was going nuts and should see someone for it, it was terrible. This site and expressing my anger, letting things out, allowing myself to be mad and hurt and not condeming myself for it has really helped me get a grip and figure things out. I feel I have gotten over most of it and am able to get on with life and do something with myself, though once in awhile I fall into a depression and have a hard time pulling out.
