Thank you Diane. I truly didn’t realize how brainwashed I was by the world until I couldn’t stop blaming myself even though I knew it wasn’t my fault. I did all the right things and went to therapy and had successful sessions but it was still deeply buried in my brain that this came down to me, because of the years of having that kind of thinking shoved down my throat. But I was there! It’s so frustrating. It takes a lot to own up that sometimes we make mistakes and rush to judgment, not to mention with something that must’ve been a really difficult situation for you. It’s a learning experience; an ugly one, but one that happens a lot, unfortunately. Wish you all the best.
