I just wanted to share this....

there was a situation when I was a teenager. Not a good situation. Its been like this big dark secret of mine. I have only told one other person in my life.

I just started counseling and I knew in order to begin to heal and move forward I had to get everything out on the table.

So last week at my 2nd session I told. It was hard as hell. I was shaking and crying but I did it. I cant say that it was an immediate relief to get it out. I was uncomfortable and vulnerable and cried for almost 2 days non stop.

But now, the relief is coming and now I can move forward in my healing.

I wanted to share this with anyone who needs encouragement to tell too. who has been brought down by their dark secrets. im not saying its easy to get it out there, but it does get better.

I hope my experience helps someone.

Very proud of all your progress Robbie. This is a big step. I can totally relate. I've shared a lot on this board recently too and have found that getting it out diminished the power those secrets held over me. Its almost like flushing out an old infected wound. At first the pain is almost unbearable, but then once its over the releif sets in and healing begins.

Hugs and big smiles to celebrate your advances on your healing journey.

Good for you for letting out whatever was inside of you and hurting you so deeply. I have a niece who just recently let out a family secret she had been carring around for many years. It is a very difficult thing to do but I am so proud of her for doing it. it takes alot of strength.
In the support group I belong to we say....Your only as sick as your secrets.....May you begin to feel some peace now, because we all deserve it..
Love in recovery, Peace4all/ grammie
