more on my recovery journey

My recovery is really revolving around my relationship (or non-relationship) with my father right now. I'm doing a lot of journaling about how his leaving the family affected my life. When he left, he didn't say good-bye. He just left a note. Last night I journaled a conversation between Adult Jill (AJ) and Little Jill (LJ, my inner child). AJ explained to LJ why her daddy was leaving. LJ wanted to fix the problem (maybe this is where my co-dependency started!). LJ thought if she was better, then her daddy would stay. AJ explained that it was absolutely NOT LJ's fault, and that nothing she could do or say would make her daddy and her mommy stay together. LJ told AJ that she was very unhappy about the situation. And AJ held LJ and told her that her feelings were okay and normal. AJ reassured LJ of the love her father still has for her, the love of her mother, grandmother and God. AJ also let LJ know that she loves her too.

LJ wants to write her dad a note to say good-bye. I guess that will be my next journaling session.
