NaBloPoMo: Healing Process

As part of the healing process, please talk about how you processed the situation.

After my abusive relationship, the caseworkers at a shelter helped me find a transitional housing program. There were several things that I did in order to cope with my life being in a shambles.

I think I will break it down into a list of the Good and the Bad.

Went to therapy for two years.
Didn’t date anyone for at least a year.
Went to a support group.
Read a lot of books.
Worked on setting goals.
Forgiveness is important.
Re-building relationships with friends and family.

Gained 30 pounds by eating mostly Oatmeal Creme Pies.
Didn’t really socialize with my roommates for at least three months.
Was a reality television show junkie for awhile. Have seen every episode of “Flavor of Love” once or twice.

As the anniversary of some events of the relationship pass, it gets a little easier to deal with each year. This fall will be the sixth anniversary of the events. I feel as if I’ve moved on from that time. It hasn’t been easy but all of the aggravation and tears were worth it.

This is great advice!
