therapy session

I had therapy again today and she gave me some things to think about and try to answer. Why am I hanging on to anxiety? What is the payoff? If I let go of the anxiety am I letting go of Rebecca. Am I afraid to move on because in doing so I have left my daughter behind?

I am not sure what any of the answers are but I hope I figure them out soon.

I am less anxious right now but I always have that fear in the back of my head about it returning or getting worse.

That is some good food for thought. I understand we all grieve differently but why is it that some people seem to move forward at what seems a much faster rate?

What is the difference between missing our daughters and missing them too much? Your post has definately got me thinking. You really can apply those simple questions to any of the issues in your life. Why do we hold on to pain?

Very philosophical, let me know if you come up with any thoughts.

Good luck and hugs :bigarmhug:

Those are some pretty tough questions. The last one is the one that I struggled with the most. When you find the answer for yourself it will do a lot for your spirit. It sounds like you have found a really great counselor. Keep us posted.
