When I was shattered you taught me to open my heart
When I was filled with emptiness you gave me hope
When I saw only darkness you showed me the light
When I cried in pain you never judged me
When I was filled with fear and failure you gave me courage to face them
When I screamed doubts in my head you reassured me
When I thought life had no point you gave me reasons to go on
When I was filled with sadness you pointed out the joys that I have
When I saw nothing but hurt you helped me see the other side
When I held on to anger so strong you guided me to let it go
When I was filled with despair and doubt you listened
When I felt worthless you taught me what is important
I want to thank you. You’ve taught me to try, you have supported me, you are a caring person who always has my best intentions in your heart, you have helped my family beyond what any words could express:
As I walk alone in this world,
she shows me a new path to explore.
As I want to run away and hide,
she shows me I am not alone.
As I wonder will I ever know happiness,
she shows me inspiration.
As I see a broken family,
she shows me purpose.
As I try to hide the scars from the past,
she shows me how to listen passionately and quiet them.
As I feel unseen and unheard,
she shows me compassion and insight.
Thank you for your unconditional caring and knowledge.
As I left our appointment yesterday, I started thinking about what we discussed regarding the analogy of ‘An individual’s self growth is like a mirror’. In the amount of appointments we have had together discussing the chaotic and emotionally-reckless life of E., this last appointment was an integral factor into my own self-growth. I can now go about my life without feeling so incredibly insecure every second of the day. I wanted to send this email to you to give you a sincere thank you for all of your guidance and wisdom you have shed upon me. It baffles me to look back on certain aspects of my life and think ‘Wow, was I really like that?’
I went into therapy thinking that psychologists were a hoax and that my mom was wasting away our insurance policy away but now I would swear by it. It is so amazing to feel how liberated I am from my psychological issues that I was suffering through. I have seen myself exponentially grow into the young man that I have once sought after my whole life. I always went into every day thinking ‘I want to be like this’ or ‘I’ll never be good enough to fit in with those people’; and now, because of your amazing gift of guidance, I never will have to feel like that again. I am happy to embrace who I am and the traits that I was born with. I now have the tools to keep myself on the right track with life and will continue to enhance those tools more and more as I mature.
This is more than a thank you. You have completely changed my life around and I am so grateful to have met you. Thank you so much, Dr. Drecun.
I feel so lucky to have you as my therapist and so grateful to have been helped through so many known and unknown issues in such a short time. I love having you in my life. Life is definitely improving and I think we work well together. Thanks for everything!
Wishing you all the best!!!
