I feel so much more resilient and flexible now. I still have sad and anxious thoughts, but when they come, I feel stronger and more able to respond in a positive and constructive way.
I had the sense that there was a separation between my feelings and thoughts and my conscious experience. I saw that negative thoughts would float by, but I didn´t need to attach myself to them. I understand now the difference between I am depressed and I am feeling depressed. I no longer seem to be only defined by feelings and thoughts that I experience
I feel like there was a locked box somewhere inside me that opened up and released a feeling of happiness that I haven´t experienced in over 20 years.
