Feelings versus your head

Received a long email yesterday which began with the words” I am finally unstuck by the past.” The email went on to describe a host of learning and incidents that had a great deal of control over her life.These had largely influenced her behavior and limited her choices.”It was like groundhog day” and I gather that I reinforced it by feeling that I was trapped and could not change. At one point I was very angry at you for telling me that there were options, and I did not have to behave based on the past. Although you were always empathetic I was not ready to make that shift. A lot of the feelings still linger but I have moved on and in your words “my head has a lot more to say about the choices I am making.”I am thrilled that the past though painful no longer rules the day for her.
