I am far from perfect. I am flawed. I am broken. My childhood experience was not something that I would wish on anyone. I have a long way to go before I am “fixed.” I am still learning to understand what “normal” is. However, over the last several months, I am starting to make progress, and behind my progress is Dr. Mary Zoglo.
My time with Mary has helped toward finding my voice, as well as the confidence and strength I need to use it. This journey is far from over, but I am learning to acknowledge the validity of my thoughts and feelings and how to feel confident in them. For the first time in my life, I do not feel guilty for wanting love, affection, acceptance, and guidance, nor do I feel wrong or guilty for seeking out people who provide me with these things.
Mary helps me to acknowledge that the person I am inside is a good person – a person worthy of being; a person who deserves unconditional love, respect, and praise for my accomplishments. She also helps me to believe that what I want and what I need out of my life are acceptable and worthy of fulfillment.
I am grateful for her sympathy toward my experience, the patience she has with my journey, the understanding and respect she has for my hesitations and limitations, and the strength that she has and shows me within myself.
