WHAT DO I SEE IN FRONT OF ME? – Anonymous
I see many white things. Those things would be an apartment building that has at least 20 window, painted lines, arrows, and crosswalks along with frames of the windows and doors, and the porches and poles at Healey Terrace. The signs on the piece of equipment that reads “United Rentals.” I also see the Sun Journal vans and mail trucks that have a lot of white on them. I also see with white, the parking signs that read “compact car parking” and the sign on the Credit Union building that has Five County on it. And also this paper I am writing on.
A BIG CHANGE IN MY LIFE – Anonymous
One thing that has made a big change in my life would be the day I started going to counseling. I think the way it has changed me is by allowing me to talk with someone and be able to express my feelings about issues in my life that I deal with. One issue I’ ve dealt with that my counselor has helped me with was when I was with my ex-boyfriend. She helped me see patterns in his behavior that I was unaware of and helped me learn the difference between being aggressive, passive, or assertive due to the anger I had built up inside from the stress he caused me. I learned quickly back at the start of our relationship between him and me that I was quite verbally aggressive because I used to call him names and insult him. After we were through with each other I became more passive and just allowed anything that happened to be just that I allowed it to happen. Now, I leaned in other situations to speak up and be assertive by advocating for myself and not allowing those people to smooth talk me into what I don’t want.
