WHEN YOU PARTICIPATE IN THE DIAMOND RELATIONSHIP PROGRAMME, YOU WILL:

Thank you for the counseling session yesterday, Hal. For the first time in what feels like (and might actually be) months, I felt heard. I felt that I could share how I feel and that I could feel what I feel. With less fear of judgment & with fewer preemptions of chastisement or questioning, I slowly felt more open to simply be. I felt safer. And, even through my tears, I felt I could breathe a bit easier, relax and let my guard down. Surprisingly, with this feeling (that I was truly being heard and that my feelings mattered), I in turn felt I was more open to listen to, understand, and empathize with Alexey. Thank you, Mari
