Hi Mrs. Jenkins, i'm doing better, still having trouble sleeping at night though
Hello again Joselyn, so how are we doing this week? Anything interesting happen this week?
Some nights I don't have them, other nights I do. I just want to forget it happened.
So you told me you've been having trouble sleeping again. Are you still having the dreams?
Thank you Mrs. Jenkins
It was a good session today Joselyn. I appreciate you for talking more. Your getting better little by little.
Since I was 8, I'd go see Mrs. Jenkins every Friday at 3:00. I've been seeing her for 3 years. It was like routine. Talking to her how my week was, playing games, after that we would talk about the serious stuff. What I hated that most.
I'm going to miss you to Mrs. Jenkins. I know where to come whenever I need someone to talk to.
Hi Joselyn. I'm happy and sad that this is our last session i'm going to miss talking with you but I know that you don't need me anymore
I would sit on the beanbag and she would sit on the couch. This is her trying to make me more comfortable so I can talk more. I didn't like talking about it because I had to think about it and all the events would just hit me all at once. It was like I was going through the trauma all over again.
Remember all of our session's when your having a hard time.
At the end of a session she would tell me that i'm improving everyday . At first I didn't believe anything that came out of her mouth. But with coming here for 3 months now i'm taking her advice to help myself. I don't like being the shy timid girl who is always paranoid.
I know. Thank you Mrs. Jenkins
Don't forget the important lesson I taught you. It is for you not them.
I'm 16 now and I have really changed. It's all because of Mrs. Jenkins. Like always we have small talk in the beginning. Of course small talk now is different from when I was 11. The only thing different today was that this was our final session.
When we would go sit down I could talk about it openly. I wasn't afraid anymore. I know now that it is better to not forget what has happened you can't just ignore it. I am more social than I used to be, i'm stronger than I ever was.
I will Mrs. Jenkins. You have made me grow a lot these past 8 years. If it wasn't for you I wouldn't e who I am today. You've played a big part in my life.
I learned something very important from Mrs. Jenkins. forgiving the person is for YOU not for them. I couldn't be more grateful for her.
