Yesterday’s final trauma therapy session was more emotional for me than I thought it would be. I felt quite stirred by it the rest of the day and into the evening, and the feelings are lingering with me today.
I suppose it’s because for the first time, I really talked to someone about what happened to me. Even those closest to me — even the people who have read my book — don’t really know the full impact of my life experience the way Kris does. And that’s OK, because there really isn’t a way for them to know, not unless they have experienced long-term trauma themselves.
I still have a lot of personal work left to do. I pray I have time to do it.
