I Finally 'Got It'

Dr. Laura:

I grew up in an alcoholic, single-parent family with a revolving door of drugs and sexual as well as verbal abuse.  I suffered immensely from my childhood, and I was ashamed of who I was and where I came from.  With the love of my grandparents, I was taught values and the meaning of hard work.  I was determined to be a successful adult.  

I failed for many years, until I found you.  You helped me, just by listening to you scold, direct, and lovingly guide so many women who have shared my experiences and "felt" my feelings.  Thanks to you, I chose well, and have an amazing husband who has told me for many years the same things that you encourage and demand from your listeners.  But I was too stubborn to give in, because I thought my value came from my workplace.

I finally "got" it, thanks to you, and because of you, I am my husband's girlfriend and left the corporate world to parent my child the RIGHT way by being a stay-at-home mom.  While she is in school, I've also started to follow my path as an artist.  You helped me improve my marriage and my relationship with my daughter.  And I've shared your wisdom with friends and family.  I feel so much peace knowing that the two most important people in my life are now truly the most important people I take care of every day - not a client, not an employer - just my family.  


P.S.  My husband thanks you too, for teaching me that men don't want to "talk it out."'  They want food, sex, and back rubs!
