I think I am finding a voice

I wrote all day yesterday. I didn't know I could find so much peace in writing. I took my kids to friends/ babysitters and wrote for about 14 hours straight. Oh my goodness it felt good. It was terrifying some of the things that came out. Boy am I messed up! LOL But I could see things when I wrote them down that I've never been able to see before. There they were...looking back at me.

I posted my background on here in detail, but quickly removed it. I am not sure if I am ready for that. Or if it is right to make it public. Most of all I don't think it is totally necessary to make it public...not right now anyway. I think I might mail it to my therapist though. I feel like I want someone who is on the 'outside' to read it.

I need to read over these 12 steps. I think I need to go to ARP meetings. But my husband goes to the local meetings and I feel like that is 'his space'. I feel like I need to find space of my own. Right now, this is my safe space with out him. I think I'll need more later. But for today, it helps.

"The Savior teaches that we will have tribulation in the world, but we should "be of good cheer" because He has "overcome the world". His Atonement reaches and is powerful enough not only to pay the price for sin but also to heal every mortal affliction… He knows of our anguish, and He is there for us. Like the good Samaritan in His parable, when He finds us wounded at the wayside, He binds up our wounds and cares for us. Brothers and sisters, the healing power of His Atonement is for you, for us, for all. "
