Re: Emotional resilience and the impact of its lack

My good mood following the above post has continued, anger at those who stole the first half of my life from me and valuing myself go hand in hand. Anxiety is still ready to pop it's head out at every opportunity. Valuing myself slays one head of the Cerberus, fear of other people is the other head....

Re: Emotional resilience and the impact of its lack

Hi Eric Thanks for replying but I disagree with almost everything you have said. What suits you doesn't suit me. Anger can be a good thing, something to be nurtured. The whole forgiveness thing may well suit some people, often I suspect people strive to forgive because of religious and societal expe...

Re: Emotional resilience and the impact of its lack

I've made quicker progress on my 4 August post than I thought possible. It links in to when I did CBT in 2014 and identified that a core belief was that I am a burden on all those around me, that I am not good enough. That core belief finally shifted in counselling on Tuesday. I now feel that I am g...

Re: Emotional resilience and the impact of its lack

4 August 2020 So, since my last post, I have been engaging in self care. That was until today, counselling day. One day a week is affordable though. I will see how I behave for the rest of this week. I've been struggling with the whole idea of self compassion for a while. I know it is key to making ...

Re: Emotional resilience and the impact of its lack

29 July 2020 I don't know what I am feeling following my last counselling session. I know I've lost time this evening, for the first time in a very long time. Only a couple of hours but still disconcerting. Disassociation city. I know I feel the same strange relaxation I did immediately after the se...

Re: Emotional resilience and the impact of its lack

Just had an F'ing intense counselling session. Intellectually, I know my mother was incapable of loving her children but emotionally, I am still asking why. Contacted that question of younger me and those emotions. Fk, that was a tough experience.

Re: Emotional resilience and the impact of its lack

It has been hard but good to sit with, and explore, these emotions. It is a vicious circle, the sense of never having been loved by my family leads me to believe I am not good enough and that no one could love me, therefore I am too scared to make myself vulnerable enough to try. Better not to do a...
