I got a message yesterday over at the Facebook page for this site. It was from someone who has been an adult for awhile, yet is just starting to deal with the effects of an abusive childhood. They were looking for a “good first step”, a place to start, where they could get some ideas on what was possible and how to go about starting down a healing path. They don’t have access to pay for therapy at this point, and aren’t sure that’s right for them to begin with. I’m thinking of something like a good book, an online community, etc.
What were some of the things that first inspired you to start your healing journey? If you had to do it all over again, what would be the first step you would take? Let us know in the comments. I’m sure this person will be checking in to see what you all have to say!
