You survived abuse, deceit, and lack of love. You want to forget about it.
You find ways to lock it away. You are hardworking and successful.
But the relationships in your life keep falling apart.
You try again to bury the pain.
Unanticipated tragedy has come into your world, and you are overwhelmed.
Control has been ripped away.
Disoriented and numb you don’t know where to start getting to grips with it all.
Even though you are struggling, you are reluctant to seek a counsellor.
You don’t want to be seen as mentally ill.
You have had unpleasant counselling experiences in the past.
You didn’t feel understood. The ‘treatment’ didn’t work.
Will this be any different?
You long to be appreciated and cherished.
You have tried different ways of getting that need met.
But it seems to be a hole that nothing can fill.
