When life gives you lemons, make lemonade
« on: June 06, 2020, 11:47:03 AM »
It has been awhile since I have posted, so I wanted to say Hi and give you an encouraging update. Things have gone south with my family of origin and my MIL, but I am determined to make lemonade out of the lemons given to me. I am not going to let this make me a bitter person. Some good will come out of this situation with my family. I wanted to let you know that I am so excited that I have met some of my goals for myself  to try to make this world a better place. Since we aren't allowed to say specifically what we do for a living, I will just say that in general I work in the field of mental health. I have been able to meet one of my career goals that will enable me to help other people and get the message out that emotional abuse is damaging and it matters. The second goal I have meet is that I now have a website and I published my first blog on emotional abuse. I am so excited to finally be able to add to the information out there on emotional abuse! It seems like 10 or 15 years ago there just was not very much information out there on emotional abuse. I am so happy to see that people are talking about emotional abuse and narcissism more. Keep talking guys! Keep reaching out to others who have been hurt by personality disorders and abuse of all kinds. We can make a difference.  :) :grouphug: :wave:
