*yawn*

for those of you that got confused by my last entry, i accidentally did an "a href" instead of an "img src", so the picture is actually there now. And the Soul6 score was on double, btw.

it's been a while since i've been....

*starts over*

i've always taken a lot of pride in how i help people. It's not like i try to give people answers, i try to guide them to find their own answers, to understand themselves. I don't pretend to know the answers more than they do. (won't get into how that methodology bothered and didn't work for kim.)

The thing that's different about right now is that typically those sorts of things happen in one of two ways: a) several people having minor drama that's manageable on my end (e.g., Angie's hiatus from corps, Peggy's hospital thing, Colleen's husband), or b) one person having intense drama, but all of my focus is on that (like saving Minna or Hannah from suicide, counseling a good friend after a break up).

These past few days, i've been counselor to such a flood of drama from so many different directions. it's been hard, but it's also been great. not that i need as much validation as i used to - if there's one thing that Kim did for me that i will always be thankful for, it was forcing me to look at myself honestly and not let my low self-esteem issues get in the way of the Truth that i am a great person.

still, having the mental chops to not only be able to handle all of the drama that's come my way but also *welcome* it in such a way that people feel free to open up to me... *shrug* it's such a wonderful feeling.

hmm... i could have better articulated this entry, but that's what happens when you write while still a bit brain dead.

i think i'm going to try to call kim now to say hello. i wonder how i'll feel.

If it weren't for you, I'd probably be wandering the halls of a mental institution right now.
