I'm more than a nickname! ,

Joy in shared pain

It’s taken me years to even begin to understand myself, my destructive behaviors. Driven by trauma, need for approval and acting to someone else’s script. Then to be able to forgive and laugh at myself.

Nice to hear the female version of my younger self doing the same. Only thing I can offer is that; by learning to be true to yourself, with age and a bit of wisdom, it gets a lot easier, and that vicious circles can become virtuous ones.
