Great post!! My ex-T and I talked about that A LOT and that is one of the biggest things I learned. To, in some ways, be my own therapist. (He called it "therapizing" yourself). When I started therapy, I was really good at tearing myself down, OR not giving my own feelings any weight at all, and not validating myself. Now, that has made all the difference in how I view myself. I like myself more, because I give myself some credit. How I feel is just how I feel, and no one can tell me I'm wrong about it.

My T also called it "emotional intelligence"--recognizing that you feel a certain way, instead of just reacting by getting angry or depressed.

Pinkeye, I think you and I have some of the same issues concerning men.
