No new posts Stage 3 - Healing (Steps 15-21)
Stage Three can be a very exciting time as you increasingly experience the fruits of your labors and become comfortable taking control of your life. In this stage you will revisit the issue of resolving your experience of abuse by deciding whether to confront your parents/abusers. From this decision and subsequent contact, if any, with your family you will gain a revised and deeper understanding of how and why you were abused. Having this new understanding and making it part of your life will help you to heal many of your wounds to a degree that you might not have ever thought possible. As you proceed with developing new expressions of your individuality, mere survival will not be enough for you. You aspire to thrive. You may find yourself moving through this stage with optimism and anticipation. You are beginning the steps that integrate your history, your feelings, the adaptations that you have made, and the life that you want to build.
