365 Days of Gratitude

Today, Wednesday, January 10, 2018, I am grateful for the feedback I received from one of my cousins. Because of the monstrous abuse I was raised in, I developed a mountain of emotions I had to repeatedly stuff deeper inside of me with no hope of resolution. My needs, wants, and desires were constantly ridiculed and used against me. I grew up with a perverted sense of family so I distanced myself from all of my family out of self-preservation. I have maintained that distance for most of my life. I suspect that my two older sisters have presented a misleading image of me to the rest of our family. I don't have any proof of that but that is what I suspect.

Recently, since the feelings I had tangled up with anxieties, just to name a few, are healing and I am a little stronger about interacting with my cousins and relatives.

One of my cousins reached out to me on Facebook on my Daily Gratitude post for Monday, January 8. He acknowledged the distance I have come in healing and overcoming my obstacles. He encouraged me and told me that I am in his thoughts.

So, I am beginning my journey to clear my name in the eyes of my family.

What are you grateful for today?
I would LOVE to hear ALL about it!
