Brian, I don't blame you. When I first heard about it, I was go, go, go, then I wobbled a little and then I thought Yes, go. I expect the conference as a whole and the workshops I'm attending to be wonderful and enlightening and educational. I think it's something that can only be good for me. And I desperately want to meet some of the folks who have helped me so much in this last 2 years. That's my main goal.
As an aside, but really no less important, is that there will be so many people there who know my situation and your situation. They won't judge or look at anyone with a confused or hesitant glance. Every single person attending this conference will have a vested interest in healing. The cloaks can be thrown off and there needs to be no fear of saying or doing the wrong thing for fear of someone "finding out." Some will be stronger and in a better place than others, but all will reach out a hand. I can't think of a better place to be.
If you fall down 10 times, Stand up 11.
