'Coming out of the woods'

In my therapy session this week my counsellor said that I was coming out of the woods. You usually hear that when someone is sick, so coming out of the woods, what does that mean for me? Does that mean I am becoming a survivor? What an absolutely amazing thing. To have experienced something so absolutely devastatingly horrific and to actually possibly survive it. I never ever thought I'd see the day where I would be 'coming out of the woods' I really didn't. It's still hard and it's still awful, words can't describe how painful and life shattering it is but to actually survive it and come out somewhat intact, I no longer feel like my life is over. I hope I stay feeling like this.


  1. Congratulate yourself on your amazing progress. You are a survivor!!!

  2. That first moment that you realize you are a survivor rather than a victim is truly awesome. Congratulations on that moment.

  3. Congratulations indeed. What a great realization and place to be!

  4. Reading this almost brought me to tears!

    There are no words to describe how incredibly proud i am of you! You are a true survivor, an incredible person who deserves all the happiness in the world.

    You inspire me, you give me hope that one day i'll come out of the woods...and meet you in the clearing :-)

  5. I can not believe im almost 50 and have just recently been victimized all over again..the abuse coming from a co-worker! I'm so afraid..i dont know what to do because i cant lose my job and dont know who to talk to. I hope someday, I'll be walking out of the woods 2! Keep up the awesome work! Also, i'm not sure how to use this twitter stuff so if any1 has any advice 4 me; that would be great lol..I would really like 2 be able 2 find someone 2 talk 2 who knows what I am feeling and going through!
    thank you! :-)
