    I found this online and it was very helpful to me to see just how far I've come in my healing journey

    http://www.cbwhit.com/Victim-to-survivor.htm

    I circled about seven in the Victim column, and circled the rest in the Survivor column. Thriver seems a long way off, but I know I'll get there.

    Where do you fit?

    I'm inspired, Dazzle, by your absolute knowledge that you "will get there".

    Thank you so much for all your links recently, too.

    I've gone backwards....
    Solidly in the victim column - only 2 in the survivor
    after years of work....why keep trying
    guess the damage is too great

    I am perfectly split between 'Victim' and 'Survivor', with 12 circled for each. I can't imagine ever fitting into the 'Thriver' column, though.

    Thanks for sharing this dazzle, and I'm gad you are hopeful of your continued healing.

    hi tbear
    i think these things go in cycles. we heal for a bit, fall back, start again, heal a bit more. i had therapy in my twenties, thought i was done, and then landed back at square one in my forties when my mum died.
    i know you can get there. i believe in you.
