tjcowden,
Great post.
But I dont think people will start "Criticizing" you. The Process of healing can make many twists, turns, & backtracking. Things: ideas, feeling, thinking, that u once believed in, tend to change in tone or completely. U may need to change again on this topic Or another. So be it.
One of the Super Great things about this Forum is, the Lack of "Bashing" one another.
Of course, people disagree, thats OK. We may need that too. But we Respect one another. We can Agree to Disagree.
Good Luck on your journey. Keep posting.
