I made an appointment for a counselor today. She is actually the wife of a man I did some web work for a year or so ago. They follow the same Buddhist tradition that I follow, so I am more than a little excited to actually meet her and see her take on how to move past the hurt and pain of my past. I get to see her in September.
I am also excited to just be able to talk with someone about all the things that went on so many years ago and either be validated or be told that no, I am just making a mountain out of a mole hill. I desperately need someone to tell me that my feelings are either valid or not and give me ways to work around my anger at the past. I am sick of all this baggage taking up space in my mind and cluttering my relationships.
I am ready to move on.
