Heather's most recent blog entry (To: Current Resident of That Broken-Down House) got me thinking. Change - especially big, life-altering type change - can be really scary, and taking the steps to make that change happen can be incredibly overwhelming. I know we have more than a few users here who have realized that something needs to change in their lives in some way, but are having trouble taking the first steps, even if they know that the end result will likely be positive.
So, this thread is a place to share your experiences with big changes in your life as kind of a living example of what can happen if you take a chance, and for those of you needing support in changing something to get it. If you've gotten out of an unhealthy or abusive relationship and are processing that and working on moving forward, or have realized that you need counseling but aren't sure how to take the next step, this is the place to talk about it, to offer encouragement and get support. (I have a few things of my own to share, but I'd like to hear what some of you have to say first.)
