Maybe it's semantics that makes the difference between our views. I think you can move on, but you never forget. To me, moving on would mean that I don't think about it all the time and that I've learned new coping skills that lessen the impact of any triggers.

There's a plus side, too, though. I wouldn't be the woman I am today if I hadn't gone through this. In no way am I saying that it was good I went through it, but it shape who I became. And with therapy, I think I'm learning to accept that. I wouldn't be as resilient, or have instant radar about people, and I probably would not be as good of a mother as I am.

For me, moving on means that while it's with me everyday, I don't let it rule my life.

I have to believe this, or I wouldn't have any hope.
best,
antigua
