Integrating the anger

I had another interesting session today. I went in feeling very angry today; lots of anger bubbling under the surface with no place to go. It’s been a busy week and frustrating one too! I am angry with my ex for his lack of support, I am angry with a man I fancied for telling…

It’s ok to fall in the same places

It’s ok to stumble and fall in the same places. It’s ok to get lost. It’s ok to not want to feel alone and it’s ok to need to be loved and wanted. In short, it’s ok to be human. To cry one moment and laugh the next. To be overwhelmed and underwhelmed and to…

New Paths

It’s not easy to start a new life in a new place, make new friends, find a new job. So much ‘newness’ in such a short time. All the comfort and the familiarity of the old path has disappeared. It’s so easy to feel like you want to run back to the comfort of the…

I hate your guts but you will not steal my magic!

Temper Tantrums!

And so the saga continues. I was in tears at work this morning after so much emotional upheaval last night. It was stage 2 from the diagram you see above. The Incident! My husband arrived on Saturday night and the tension has been steadily building! We have been separated for eight months now and he…

If you leave me I will get married!

Thank you to all my fellow bloggers, warrior men and women who are supporting me through my abusive husband’s crazymaking strategies! I am never going back to the madness. He keeps bringing out new tools from his box; victim, aggressor, pleading, begging, crying, insulting, ridiculing, belittling. This morning he brought out a new one and…
