I find that I am rediscovering myself

After all these years, I feel like I am getting to know myself a lot more now than before. Not sure if it is from the stress of being a broke stay at home mom...or from past events or both... Probably both. There can be a lot said here but that would be too much. LOL. But I can say that through past relationships I have learned what I really do want most, and what love really is, and that helped with me becoming more expressive with what I want, and vocalizing it when I feel it. I never really did this before. I was always too afraid to say something that may invoke a confrontation. Stuff like that...

I always love to find something new about myself....although some things can be disturbing, but even then it is on a good note, because once you know somehting positive or negative you can always make a change.....that is the best thing about tomorrow's.

Well it is good that you are now getting to know yourself more, and are able to express what you want and need.I too am much like you.I was in a very verbal and physical abusave relationship for over 8 years.It left me with many scars,I can not seem to express myself very well any longer either. I did get out of this relationship over 11 years ago, but I guess it still haunts me.I no longer want any sort of confrontation,so I keep my emotions all bottled up inside of me. It is really causing problems in my new relationship, because my partner is very open, and communicates very well, I do not.I am so glad that you are breaking through all of this and becoming your own person, beep up the good work!!
