It’s a New Year—another opportunity for a new beginning.
Of course, some of us have already embarked on new beginnings. I am always amazed, and gratified, to watch the journeys of recovery of so many Lovefraud readers.
People show up in tatters—betrayed, shocked and devastated. They gradually come to grips with what has happened. They seek help for extricating themselves from terrible situations, and the Lovefraud community offers advice, information and moral support. Eventually, feeling stronger and wiser, they turn around and help the most recent new arrivals, who have also shown up in tatters.
So here we are, in different stages of our healing journeys. Sometimes we slide back, but we are making forward progress.
I hope that in 2011 we all grow in strength and resolve. Let’s commit to:
- Taking care of ourselves.
- Heeding red flags when we see them.
- Listening to our instincts.
- Recognizing our own self-worth.
- Walking in the direction that we want to go.
When we believe in ourselves, anything is possible. Happy New Year!
