Thank you! Jason, my boyfriend, is the most tremendous source of support I could have ever asked for. He’s understanding, patient and never shows me anything but the utmost kindness and respect throughout everything we endeavour together. I feel as though sometimes my past hinders our relationship. I have opened up to him about all aspects of my life, but sometimes when I go inside of my own mind, I find myself resorting back to old coping mechanisms that clearly don’t work, such as emotionally shutting down and not opening up about what is bothering me.
Funny thing is, since cleaning up my life a bit, I have actually become a Social Worker. I find it’s often us who are in the helping professions that end up with nowhere to voice OUR problems.
