Well, two days ago you did a great job in telling the story and then again yesterday in journaling about the experience of writing it. You wrote the story as if someone was there, and you were hearing them say, “Yes, I get that it happened to you, and I am so sorry. I can see that it hurt you.” That’s what I meant by having it witnessed and validated.
However, unless you actually did share it with your buddy, you were witnessing and validating your story for yourself. And that’s wonderful. It works just as well.
The next assignment builds on the work of these last two days. Continue onto the next page to learn what to do today.
