Female, Anonymous - Palm Springs, Florida
I have started to learn how to love myself and how not to think so negatively about myself, my body, or my mind. I have learned that God has created me the way He wants, and now I can appreciate that. I have stopped complaining about things that are in my power to change. Whenever I find myself thinking negatively, I try to stop it and think more encouraging thoughts. When that doesn’t help, I write whatever I’m feeling down in my notebook and write something true and encouraging about myself. I try not to jump to conclusions and draw negative assumptions. I’m finally understanding that for the things I can control, I can find a way to change them. I have also been letting myself grieve the loss of my mother instead of suppressing my emotions. I am now reading God's word more, and I’ve been learning to put my trust more into God. I’ve been trying to include God more, and I find myself trying to better myself even more for Him. What I liked most about my sessions with Stephanie was how she would go over things that I need to do to guide me in the right direction.
