Good for you!!!
I think every day has a little victory for us if we acknowledge them. Like: I knew I was sad, so I let myself cry. I knew I wished I could talk to him, but I kept NC, even though it hurts to not be able to reach out. I tried to listen to others despite being sad: the cab driver working a second job to support a new baby, my brother whose coworker suddenly died, my roommate and friend who is having insurance worries. Focusing on the fact that my pain and struggle is not the only pain or struggling in the world.
Truly it is a journey with stops and starts. But it's going somewhere instead of stagnating and that is the main thing.
Here's to your destination as well as the rest of the never-ending (in a good way ) road.
