Did a full day of meditation today and have a half day to go tomorrow. Feels really good right now. Most help came from going out to eat with the class after meditation was done - I felt accepted by a group for the first time in what feels like years. I can see how the acceptance of others can serve as a model for finding acceptance of myself. The hard work begins there; it's always easier said than done. Right now though I am enjoying the high of intensive meditation practice and feeling like it's ok to be me.
