I just wanted to share the news: today my therapist told me we were reaching the last session after 3 years of intense work. This has been a very emotional day and I wanted to give special thanks to all the malesurvivors here and partners who have been so supportive of me while struggling with co dependency. Thank you for helping me be a better partner, thank you for teaching me how to communicate in a healthier way. Most of all, thank you for supporting me in tough times (especially when I pressed charges against my father).
Special thanks to Theo, Kolisha, Crisis Point, Lloydy.
I feel there are still areas I need to work on (intimacy/ sexual issues)but today I am able to recognize dysfunctional patterns and behaviours, I am able de stand up against people who want to hurt me and I am able to nurture of myself, not feel guilty when I want to relax or please myself. I have projects: getting a new job better paid, enjoy my internships in dance therapy and the best of them is to attend the conference in Philadelphia next year and possibly run a workshop there.
I want to tell you guys that therapy is worth it, despite all the pains and hurt when connecting with the emotions of the abuse, the powerlessness, the rage...I am free, alive and beautiful
I believe that love is stronger than hate. My abuser did not destroy me, he gave me the possibility to discover where violence lies and what love is capable of.
Finally, I want to send my love and thanks to V. who has taught me so much, who has loved me when I was a wreck, who has destroyed my armor and who has pushed me to heal my soul. I love you.
Much love and blessings to all
