I DID it!!

The 7 Steps of Healing with DID
Each step can be messy, but this outline helps me recognize that messiness can actually be evidence of healing.

Where was He!? How could He let that happen to me!? My logical conclusion—confirmed by terrible, real-life experience—was that I’m not worth His attention, that He doesn’t actually care about me, or that He does not exist. But I knew He was there, and this knowing rounded out my feelings of bitterness, gloom, and abandonment.
Survivors may struggle to accept and find meaning in a more stable, peaceful life.
