What can I say? There were some things that I think are key to my being happy as a mom that we were able to tap on. I had a handle on what I thought were issues, but, again, Deborah helped me find the right words and go at them in the right way. With my daughter, she helped me to say, what, as a mom, is hard for me to say. Really, with all of the kids. There is a part of me, that, until I saw my own, whole children, I didn't know things were missing for me, lacking in my own childhood (especially early on). Also, I was shy, timid, and backward as a child, and my daughter is very self-assured, very outspoken, and a very strong personality, and she's only 3. Part of my struggle with that seems to be that the little kid in me is jealous that she is the way she is when it has been a real struggle throughout my life to be able to express myself and be self-assured. We had a crazy weekend. We visited my parents because my dad had an accident a week ago and broke his arm and his leg. He is 59 and has never broken a bone in his life, and this is pretty hard for him to be laid up like this. He expressed his appreciation for our visit, though, as it helped pass the time, especially right now as he is still waiting for surgery to be performed on his leg (it was supposed to be done last week, but it was too swollen). So, I still haven't had a lot of processing time, but I do feel better. It seems to me that I am better able to focus on my kids and what they need now (I suppose because I have been able to let go of not having some of my own needs met). It's all clearer now, and I believe I will be better able to take care of my needs as I am not dealing with trying to fill holes in myself that I cannot fill. I know I have more to do, but I haven't yet found the direction I need to take. I am so amazed by this technique and I am very anxious to read the book that Linda mentioned. I am wanting to share EFT with others, but I am a little nervous, and perhaps some of the science behind why it works would be just the thing! And I intend absolutely no disrespect to anyone when I admit that I still walk around thinking, this must be a joke. I guess that makes it even more amazing because I keep thinking that it can't possibly be real, but it really is working.
