Wow, really insightful stuff Geri!! I am really proud of you for seeing the silver lining underneath the black cloud. You not only got through a very rough patch, but you now realize first hand that growing means you sometimes have to go through a lot of manure first - and you can survive . . . and will actually thrive - I can see it!
You've made the first steps with your Mom. More will come out as time goes by and that's the normal flow of things. I'm really glad we could be here for you. You're a good and precious young woman and I'm very glad you're still here :-)!
my mom and i discussed some stuff, got some things out in the opening. THere are still somethings that need to be said that haven't, but time will only tell. Concerning my whole dad thing... i know that i can;t change him, i kno wthat i can only control myself and my decisions. I need to make good ones, i need to get out of here and explore the world. Im sorry that i made you cry... its just you know sometimes the words you see on paper are more real for those who understand. I have tried to say those same words to others and they just didn;t understand. THank you for understanding.
> Before i thought my world caved in,i thought that i could not excape, but now that i have seen the world, i've found that i can succeed. My feelings and emotions will never go away, me pushing them away made matters worse. I can;t say thank you enough. I know that you guys will always listen (or read). I know that even if u can't answer them or be here in person i know u care, that is all that matters. U guys are angels from above, without u i don't know if i would be here today. THey say everything happens for a reason... maybe this happened to me to allow me to see outside the box.
> Well anyways thanks. thanks a lot
