I'm glad for Kelly. The one thing I really respected about her from day 1 is that she took ownership of the fact that she was the problem in her family. She never wavered from that. I could tell that this is a woman who loves her husband and her sons. She just didn't know how to show it and she said that. She even said with one exercise how she hurts everybody - friends, family, co-workers etc.
Sure Kelly had conflicts in the house, but so did everybody else and not just with her! In some of her conflicts I felt her instincts were right on. No she didn't handle every situation "smoothly", but that in part to me was what she was there to work on. I also always considered who she was there in the SOH with. I don't think Kelly should have faked her relationships in the house. I understood her "I'm here for me" because I could see how the house started revolving around one hg in particular. Heck this board was doing the same thing IMO, so I understood it! I think because Kelly didn't choose to fake her relationships in the house in part was why one hg got her recent breakthrough (IMO that is). Sure she could be petty, but there was a lot of pettyness going around in the SOH too IMO. So yes I do think there was an honesty that Kelly had. She knew what she felt, but she just really didn't know how to express it in an appropriate way.
There were times when I felt like Kelly was the person on Rhonda's caseload (for lack of a better word), that was really overlooked. Maybe she did a variety of assignments, but they just didn't choose to show it. Rhonda said that they talked about the tone, but did they talk with Kelly about her "death stare"? I don't know. If they did, they sure didn't show it. I felt like if she didn't get the "tools" she needed, it wasn't for a lack of trying. That I lay at Rhonda's feet.
Kelly has a precious family. She has a very generous husband who has by choice stayed with her & two handsome sons who love her. I hope she enjoys her family like never before and that she continues to heal & grow. I liked her and I wish her the best.
