At this past group meeting, the topic of conversation was about where we’ve been, where we are, and where we want to be or see ourselves at.
When it was my turn to discuss my representation of where I thought I was, it was honestly mind boggling. For some unknown reason, I keep wanting to say “its only been seven months”, but in reality its been 10 months since he officially left the home (thank you protection order).
I sat there and explained what each step represented and it was so amazing to see how far I’ve come from where I was in January. Its even more amazing to realize that not to long ago, I couldn’t even imagine seeing a light at the end of the tunnel. Now, I see it. Its not within reach quite yet, but I finally see it.
Do you understand how surreal that truly feels?
