There is a time for victims of abuse to remember, process, and reconcile the harmful experiences they have endured. On that point, I cannot say enough about good counseling. But, I also see survivors that feel stuck, unable to forge ahead from paralyzing, self-sabatoging patterns. As I see it, the time comes when you have to shift from the pain, the damage, and the harmful memories to recognizing and accepting the positive skills learned along the way and the notion that you are worth celebrating. So I'm sharing some ideas to help you move forward. But, first, know that you may slip and stumble now and then. That's okay. It shows you're moving. The goal is to spend less time slipping back and more time dancing on your path! =)
