My dd is 14 and she's been thru alot. I've mentioned some of the things she's had to go thru with an x friend/stalker here but there's just so much to the story its hard to write it all down in a cpl of posts. She's had to deal with alot of emotional stuff especially for such a young girl. She's the type to keep everything bottled up and she doesn't like to seem vulnerable. Counseling has helped alot but she still keeps alot to herself. She doesn't want her friends to really get to know her. She's always been worried they will look at her differently if she let them see some of the pain she's been thru. Today in class they were having a talk about how life experiences shape who you become and they were sharing stories. She just msg'd me to tell me that she shared alot about what she's had to deal with. She said everyone was really amazing and supportive. She said it felt great. I'm so proud of her.
