I think maybe those difficult feelings are about the past, totally appropriate for what was going on then, and I just needed them validated - but they're not how I feel about my life today I just needed to honour the feelings I once had about my life and couldn't feel or express back then, and then release them, let go..
I think that is a good way for me... Cause for all my life or most of my life people around me (family and friends) didn't hear or see me, they didn't validate me for who I really was and am and in a way I abandoned myself...
