What do you think so far Mark? Before I add to this very good thread, I would like to know... has some of this worked in the past? Is anything here looking promising?
At one point in my life, none of the above made any sense to my rage, to my hurt, to the abuse and the scar it left on my heart. Now is a different story, thank goodness for those steps back. Before I was 10 steps forward and none back, and I lived the agony. Recovery was about 1 forward and 9 back allowing me to connect with the abused self and bring him forward, with loving kindness. Now I am more forward than back the abuse making me a more kind, compassionate man, ready to accept and be open about me and my causes. I was angry at them and at me, now I am not angry. The answers are coming.
