Adam,

I am in awe of the beautiful person you and so many of my brothers here have turned out to be in spite of the horrifying things that have happened to them. Thanks for being you.

Lots of love,

John

Wow Adam. That is so meaningful to me. Thank-you for sharing.

You know what, I see you now being a caring and accepting presence here to the guys that are coming in with all their pain and hurt. I see you reaching out to them in the same way you were taken in and cared for when you first came. So it's not only that you are getting better, you are paying it forward to others as well. That is the key to getting better.

Someone said "No man is an island". Whoever it was, they are so right. We cannot exist on our own. We are either getting better, growing, or we are withering and dying. The only way to getting better is to reach out to others while working on the things that hurt inside ourselves. Together we move forward to better places.

My T says

"We were wounded in relationship. The only way to healing is in relationship."

That's a much better way of putting it than that long paragraph I just wrote.

Love you, Bro.

John

Adam,

This is one of the most powerful threads I have seen here on the board. And the reason is like you say:
Quote:
i had extreme abuse and now i feel extreme love ,i think its finally starting to balance out with the good being even stronger than the bad ,how do i say thank you for giving me life again ? i read the first message i posted on this thread and now i'm reading the one i just wrote ,one extreme to the other and i can see it right here in this thread ,i must be getting better cause i dont no longer dwell on the first post ,i am living the last one.
To see the change and growth that has happened in your life is a very powerful thing. And like John says to see you reaching out to others who are hurting and bringing healing to them is the best thanks you can ever give for the love and healing you have found for yourself.

Love ya

Darrel
