Is therapy about family helpful?

hi FJ folks, I was wondering if anyone here has gone through therapy specifically to deal with processing how they grew up and the relationship with other family members (NOT family therapy). Did it go well? Did it help you?  [possible TW for self-harm] I'm beginning to realize that there were parts of my childhood that were really neglectful and somewhat abusive. I have a lot of issues with my mom because she doesn't know how to put up boundaries (for anything, ever). I felt my pare

Part 1 (First Brushes with Fundamentalism)

Largely, I have been writing down my experiences as a sort of catharsis, but also on the off chance my experiences might resonate with others out there. I've spent the last ~8 years of my life thinking, processing, healing, reconciling over (etc, etc) the happenings in my childhood, how I got where I am, the whys of it. And now...I want to be done with it. It will always be part of my history but I don't want to cross into the territory of not being able to let go and living in wallowing of self

Feeling Down

I don't know how to deal with people.  I know I am an introvert, and I've always been on the shy side (though it's hard to tell what is my natural personality vs what my parents and religion WANTED me to be). But I really feel completely, totally exhausted when interacting with people.  Being shy, meek, with a soft voice - this is not a recipe for being taken seriously. I've tried doing a lot of work in being more assertive, appearing more confident (I feel pretty confident most of the ti

I'm Not A Doll

I hadn't seen my parents in weeks. We've been staying away from each other since even before the COVID-19 lockdown as they are in the vulnerable age bracket. My mother texted me, insisting she come over. "That's not the greatest idea," I said, but she wanted to drop some things off. I approached her van and she gasped. "Meep! You have gray hairs! I can really see them in the sunlight!" I've had gray hair for a while, much to the shock of my parents, who luckily never went gray until well into th

Homeschool: My Pros and Cons List

I've been to private school, public school, and homeschool. I never thought much of it but now being older, I realize that it's a bit unique to have experienced it "all." I figure I would make a pros and cons list based on my experiences. My experiences - that is a big flaw itself, right? Private schools are very different from one another. Public schools can be totally different worlds from each other. And obviously homeschools can be DRASTICALLY different. So take these lists with a grain of s

      Happy Friday, December 4th to those of us in that time zone. Happy Saturday or whatever day it is where you are! (I truly couldn’t remember what day it was, hence this status update.) We haven’t had a daily to do list in awhile. Tell me what is going on in your lives. Nothing too exciting here, just a bit of holiday decorating.

      Just a restful December day, staying warm and cozy, sipping tea and listening to the vultures hanging out on my chimney while they wait their turn to scavenge the dead opossum in the back yard. No, I don't know what day of the week it is, but this tells me that IT IS STILL 2020.
