“I have moved forward in self-awareness and self-management. We had a lot of talks and I got to do exercises, some of which I did and some of which I didn’t do. I have addressed some big issues that stood in the way of my progress and I had to break them down by acknowledge them and working them out. For example, drinking habits and internet addiction. And that helped me a great deal to move on. Now I handle my downs more conscious and aware, not only by feeling bad about them without knowing why and how to overcome them. Even though that sounds negative since they are the downs, yet it is positive in a way that I am more aware of them.
I have come to recognize myself more and to accept things as they are. Very helpfull were the reflections that I wrote to share with Bavo. And I learned that staying in one’s mind is not the best way to move on and we got to go out and reach to reality.
It was such a journey that I have spent talking Mr. Bavo, full of discussions and awareness that I was looking for. I am now making progress every single chance that I can grasp. I am full of hope for the future and looking forward to it.”
