How do you rid yourself of anxiety, fear, heartbreak, rage, resentment, and bitterness?  I knew to truly heal, I’d have to examine some things I had deeply tucked away. I had butterflies in my stomach at the prospect of the unknown.

I was a young thirty-something mom who desperately wanted to have a better relationship with my husband and understand myself better.  We were both stuffing things. I knew change had to come.

We formed small groups—a safe place. My insides were churning as I looked inward and saw a place that was murky and dark. What exactly is in there? Fear, embarrassment, self-consciousness, timidity, anxiety, anger, resentment, and sorrow. It all seemed stacked up in a daunting, nebulous cloud. I was sure lurking within it was something even worse. My hands were clammy, my stomach cramped, as if my solar plexus encased some nebulous monster. I felt tense, tormented, and terrified.
