My name is TR, and I was a part of the Boundaries group that started in January that Lorraine Charbonneau led. I saw the evaluation form and I do not feel like it really gives you a true picture of how impactful this class has been for me. I wanted to be sure to share that with you.
A year ago in the spring I was helping a teenage girl work through some struggles; this triggered some things in me and threw me into dealing with some major anxiety because of unresolved things that have happened in my childhood.
I never really knew how to handle my mother growing up- but I am learning how to deal with her now with these new boundaries I am putting into place. She does not like it AT ALL. She is fighting back and throwing “trantrums,” but this group has helped to support me in the midst of this. I do not think anyone can set boundaries like this without support from other people. This group is not just a class about learning a cool new idea… This is serious life-changing work!
I figured out in this group that boundaries were a BIG answer to a lot of my anxiety and depression. I am finally dealing with pain that has happened through the years that I never have before. I am not totally on the other side to freedom yet, but I am taking steps and feeling more and more hope.
I am so so thankful that I found the Eve Center. I look forward to hopefully being able to serve there in the future and help other people with the issues that I have dealt with in my life. My friends are probably sick of me giving them lessons about boundaries and talking about how awesome the Eve Center is! :
