thank you to all in this group that share so openly and whether thru individual experience or posting educational posts have allowed me to learn so much - i have always been very internally aware and open to learning - i believe we all have something to teach others and we all have something that we can from learn from others if we are open and honest with our selves - i have always believed that learning is a life long experience and that i can learn something new every day - and at times with my past relationship i believed these qualities i prize in myself and others had been taken from me - as i regain my balance and self esteem i realize i have learned so much from everyone here and hope some of my experiences have at least aided one person along the way - this learning process and healing journey i have been on while a member of this group has been a life changing experience for me - i am happy to say that i will no longer allow such secrets to rule my life - i have been asked to present at one conference and have been invited to submit an abstract for another conference - i could not have even considered such a task 6 mos ago - thank you all for helping me learn and more importantly letting be me and being open to learn - to trust myself again and find peace in my strengths that my ex tried to rob from me - i now know that no one can steal such wonderful traits from me no matter what and with all your help I am moving forward and not ashamed of myself but proud of who i am and how i survived to remain me and go foward with my stories . with thanks to all and may we all keep learning together jd :-)
