Counseling Session #19

I didn't do well at my homework.  I seem to be stuck.  

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.
