Broken has listed all things she has swept under the rug in her life and is looking at them, dealing with them. Only when she accepts (and loves) her life and herself, she will stop being limited by her past and will have a strong platform to build her positive goals.
Unresolved strong feelings will influence your positive goals regardless how many times you write and read them.
To the rest of the group:
Broken is a very good name. It is an acceptance of a need for healing and improvement.
TRUE. exactly what I thought. I disagreed with the way SP involved this person in his last blog post.
I relate to this person because I know what emotional abuse is like. I know what it's like to feel "broken" and, to act like a person is stupid for venting their pain?
I have received advice like that, that I was stupid for venting and should only focus on the positive, but you know what, maybe some people have a mental and emotional need to vent more than other people. And from what I've found venting has emotional and mental benefits. <3
