What have you learned about yourself by going through this program? I've learned that I need or want a lot of caring. Compared to how I used to be I'm now ridiculously easy on myself. It's also something that I look for in relationships. I had one relationship about two years ago where my girlfriend said I was a "sponge for affection". She didn't mean it as an insult but it didn't make me feel good about myself. In some ways I felt like I was treated a bit like one of her cats- we all relaxed when our stomachs were rubbed. So I've recognized that I get something out of being cared for at least a few years but I think the journaling has made me more comfortable with this idea? I'm really not sure. I do feel determined to be nice to myself.
