Finished Exam Work
Jun 12th, 2007 at 4:21pm
 
I've just finished my exam work for my foundation year in Transactional Analysis.  I'm so chuffed  Cheesy

Years of emotional abuse by my mother too have made me into an individual who believes she will never achieve and never succeed.  This is the first course I have finished and believed in what I have handed in BEFORE its due date (only by one week) is satisfactory.

I've rung my husband who is out tonight to say I've "done it" and his mobile answerphone has kicked in  Cry

I want to ring my T; I know it is not appropriate and it will wait until I see her tomorrow really.

Sadly, I want to ring my Mum for some praise.  I haven't picked up the phone as I know it will fall on deaf ears and I'll set myself up for dissapointment and shame.

I know my Dad would have been pleased and I will tell him when I see him at his grave on Fathers Day this Sunday.

I have you all here, who I know will understand how much this means to me and how much I really want my mother to approve.

I simply wanted to share in this moment with you all ...........   I really want to cry - I want my Mum to say "Well Done" for once and change who she is  Cry

Tracey,

Congratulations! It sounds like you have come so far and this is an amazing achievement! I really feel your pain that your mother will not give you the approval you long for. I'm glad you haven't contacted her because you deserve to enjoy your achievement without her spoiling it for you. With or without her approval, you have succeeded in your own right!!!!

Big hugs,

Riv Smiley

HOW EXCITING TRACEY!!!  I am so proud of you!!  Proud of you like a sister!  Great job!  I wish you could call your mom.  And I wish your dad was here to talk to.  And I think your therapist would have been pleased and honored that you called her.  I would have had to call mine and at least leave a message.  OH~ and I so wish you could have talked to your husband.  But you are right ~ we are here and proud of you.  And your husband will be so proud as well. 

Big hugs,
Mandi Smiley
