Thank you all, you strong, bright, intuitive friends of mine. I have attained another milestone... victory! This doesn't have much to do with SA, per se, but it has to do with healing, our ultimate goal. Today I had a confrontation with my daughter, who, with her family, live with me temporarily. She was angry and made some ugly remarks.I was shaken and sad by the things I heard. My first thought was to come here and get support, then I realized I had it within me to handle it, BASED ON WHAT I HAVE LEARNED HERE. I FELT KINDA WEIRD. I ran through my values, my boundaries and many feelings. I had the answers myself, in my head and my heart. I saw that she was the one hurting, and didn't have the clarity I had. I handled it well, and quietly talked to her.

This is the most in control I have felt in years.

On another level, H and I have talked some about SA the last two days, and how it affects us; or rather I have talked to him. He has tried to be a big boy about it ( sorry, but this is SO how I feel about this), and today I saw him latch onto this family riff as if to say, See? Now I am the good guy and daughter is bad! No, it didn't change my view of us. If anything, it solidified my feeling of purpose :g:
