Therapy Session II:
Today’s session was a bit hard to swallow, but very much necessary. We discussed co-dependency, power struggles, and volatility… my apparent trifecta.
I learned that ‘feelings‘ are often thinly veiled thoughts and that the two, while similar in many ways, are VASTLY different.
I learned that it’s okay to express both thoughts AND feelings. I don’t always need to apologize when I speak my truths (even if it is upsetting to the other party) because I’m not responsible for others’ emotions, only my own.
I learned that personal boundaries are healthy.
I learned that to truly become better, I must acknowledge and study and embrace my failure. I can’t always strive for perfection.
I learned that, although others may be responsible for my traumas, only I am responsible for addressing and fixing them.
Also, and perhaps most importantly, I learned that true happiness isn’t going to be found anywhere else but inside of ME, so it’s up to me alone to find it.
