Saying Good-Bye To My Therapist


You helped me from the very start
I was discouraged and sad
But through the years with all your help
Now my life is not so bad.

I have made it through many scary things
And you were there to lend an ear
Helping me with suggestions that I took
Which alleviated my fear.

It’s tough to say all I want to say
In conveying how much you’ve meant to me
Most of all I’ve learned from you
How to live my life joyously and free.

Free from sorrow and worry
Free from hurts and pain
You taught me I could be strong
Courage I did gain.

You helped me let go of the past
So I can live well today
You showed me I am worthwhile
And being me is okay.

Taught me to change my thinking
And no longer put myself down
I have left hurtful people
Desiring nice ones around.

I have learned to stand on my own
To be all that I can be
This is what you helped me to do
Now I can be the real me.

It is so hard to say good-bye
To such a caring person like you
But you are wished the very best
For all your good dreams to all come true.

    Connie,
    I know what you just said - - -
    and wouldn't it be great if all children would say what you just said,
    to their parents ?
    It is no use holding your breath though!
    ... You will just pass out again!

    Connie this is just so wonderful, and very fine trbute to a person who helped bring out of the ring of fire. I am happy that you are now a whole and complete person, and just remember tho, that life is a disaapointment at best, but don't let that get you down, because we all go through it. I wrote a poem about my therapist too, called My Best Friend...I will post that when I am finished here.

    Like Francesca said this is very inspirational and a very happy success story. You go girl, and be the best of anything that you want to be.

    With love n hugs,
    Barbara

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
