A bunch of major barriers are getting broken down this week and it has been super overwhelming and scary. I asked my counselor for an additional session this week, which I had this morning.
It was so hard to get myself there - mental, physical, emotional barriers - but I did it. I had written down what I needed from him and also what I was fearful about and was able to articulate that. I started dissociating and couldn't ground myself and was able to ask for help and let him walk me through it for almost half an hour without feeling guilty or ashamed or trying to stuff it. And I was finally able to share a little bit about the new pieces that need healing.
It was so intense and I'm still shaking a bit, but I'm really proud of myself for booking the appointment (i.e. taking up space/claiming space for myself), staying in the moment, asking for help, and being open in a safe way.
Thank you Mighty community for all of your thoughts and comments and stories that helped me do this today. Mighty Together 💪
