My counselor asked me questions. What was the hardest part of writing your story? She is amazed at how I did it and stated most people can not do what I did in all aspects of remembering, writing, reading, and hearing the story. I am not surprised. I was determined to do this, even though it was one of the hardest things I have EVER done.
We discussed the reactions to my story by others. The things I still question. The need for validation and reassurance. The steps to read, acknowledge and accept my story. The steps to grieving my childhood.
- Write a review of what I got out of telling my story. [Worst Part. Best Part. What didn't I get out of it that I had hoped to? How I felt? How I relate to my family? Myself?
- Write 2 or 3 personal goals since writing my story.
