Thank you all for making me feel so welcome and accepted. It's the first time in a long while that I have been with people I've only just met and not felt uncomfortable, and insecure. I did feel like I was out of practise at socialising, but maybe it's more like the old patterns of socialising are no longer valid. I know I have changed, or I would never have felt relaxed enough to fall asleep on someone's sofa, especially when I had only just met them. Sorry about the snoring, it couldn't have been too bad or you'd have woken me up.
I'm finding it a struggle to put words together today, it was another fairly tough session at psychotherapy this morning... The next hurdle I have is to be able to find myself and my value in this world from within myself, not by external validation. Yesterday showed me that I had made some progress along that path.
