10 moments. making sense of it all.



1. Sex with Charles

14. I thought I had no choice bu to do this in order to feel as a cool, worthy teenage girl. Because I felt nerdy and not sexy.

1.2. Identify the before and after in your self concept. Which aspect of your self concept was impacted [self confidence, sense of peace, hopes, ambition, joy, love]

Before: I felt like an innocent pre-teen girl who had no clue and was nerdy

After: I felt like I had lost my innocence. That it didn't really up my self esteem, I realized that I had made a mistake. I realized that it's not because I had sex that I was going to be loved.

3. How has this moment affected me long term?

As a result of this event, I have lived my life with the tendency to think that men are only interested in pretty girls that bring them pleasure. I looked at this experience like a failure to please. But I also feel that sex is one of the most enjoyable things in life. As a result of this event, I have tended to think that I needed men to find me attractive and constantly fear rejection on that basis. As a result of this, I have tended to jump into bed too kick with men and try and perform. As a consequence of this, I have tended to imagine that sex and pleasing someone sexually and be attractive was much more important than anything else and I have tended to neglect other aspects of relationships. As a result of this, I have tended to look for good looking, sexual types of men with large penises and though that nothing else would satisfy me.

4. How and why I think the moment either clarified or distorted My authentic self.

It clarified that I enjoyed sex very much. But it distorted my authentic self because I thought no guys would hold out for me if I wasn't sexually obliging enough. It distorted my sense of self in the way that I expected men to not care about other aspects of me. It distorted my sense of self by making me think I needed to have men in my life to be a worthwhile person.

5. Decide whether or not I believe my interpretation was and is accurate or inaccurate.

Now I know that my interpretations were mostly wrong. I know that I looked for good things in men. I want sexual pleasure, but not at all costs. Now I know that I am a worthwhile person who can decide when I am comfortable to be sexual with a man. I know that if a man can't hold out, He lacks character because it will happen and I know,at least I can be good in bed. But most importantly, I realize I still need to work on my communication skills and make sure I am respected for who I am.

6. Is this something I should keep or reject in regards to my concept of self.

It's something I should reject. I know that I am attractive to men. But I need to understand there's more about me. I am interested in the men I date, what they do... I feel they should to.


2. Dad finding out I wished he'd died.

Admitting to myself that the pain was so intense that I wish my dad would just die. And I wanted to see his reaction when he did find out.

2.2. Identify the before and after in your self concept. Which aspect of your self concept was impacted [self confidence, sense of peace, hopes, ambition, joy, love].

Before: Denying anger at dad. I am no good.

After: Open anger at dad. I can see the reality. I am lonely and feel like I'll be screwed up because of my dad.

3. How has this moment affected me long term?

I feel like I have no real good relationship in my life. I feel lonely and that I need to get myself better and it's an uphill battle.

4. How and why I think the moment either clarified or distorted My authentic self.

I feel that it distorts my authentic self because I don't want to be angry all the time and feel damage. The damage is there but it's only a part of me, yet I think it my whole self.

5. Decide whether or not I believe my interpretation was and is accurate or inaccurate.

6. Is this something I should keep or reject in regards to my concept of self.
