Actually, a lot of your post was helpful--sorry if I made it seem otherwise. I think that understanding different perspectives is one of many things that will help me to be more functional in the world in general. At this point, I am still a little fragile (and thus hypersensitive), but learning to accept helpful thoughts from different vantage points is a really crucial step for me. I'm really trying to learn from this.
In other news, my practice is going well! I took one class Saturday and will take another this evening. I am very happy to be back. I'm trying to mobilize all resources to keep myself moving forward.
