"Out beyond ideas of right-doing and wrong-doing there is a field. I'll meet you there." ----- Jalal ad-Din Muhammad Balkhi-Rumi, 13th century Sufi poet.

"Have faith that people do their best. I don't know anyone who would eat with pigs out of a trough in a muddy barnyard if he knew that a well-prepared meal was on the table in a clean house - do you?" Greg Baer

"The Secret in healing Narcissism is not to heal it at all, but to listen to it. Narcissism is a signal that the soul is not being loved sufficiently. The greater the Narcissism, the less love being given." ~ Thomas Moore, 'Care of the Soul'.

Remember last summer when I was talking about how I wanted to date my new neighbor and she resisted saying let's just be friends :evilpatch: Tuesday night she called me up and asked if I would be willing to go to a concert with her. said yes and suggested dinner as well. I'm not exactly sure if this amounts to a date but I'm really looking forward to it.

Life got so busy yesterday that I didn't get a chance to check in here. I missed the positive energy of seeing people working to heal their wounds and move forward in life. I feel good when others around me are giving this kind of energy. Thanks to all who make this community what it is.:peace:

I just wanted to say a special thanks and note of appreciation to those who are finding the positives in the midst of a divorce or separation. I'm going through this process myself and I understand all to well how it can become a cancer. I find a lot of inspiration in these positive steps your talking about. Divorce may be hell but there is life after divorce.

My anxiety levels were rising to such high levels that I finally decided I needed to do something with my nervous energy. I've never been great with my hands but I decided to try knitting. Last night I finally completed a sweater. Please don't ask how long it took. Its done and that's the most important thing. And I had a chance to think about something other than narcissism.

Maybe I'm the only one who feels this but I believe this thread is a powerful testimony to the power of positive thoughts in healing. Amazingly there have been no flames. Just people finding good things in life. As my soon would say, way cool.

Last night I made a special point of keeping eye contact with my friend as we were chatting. It went better than I feared it might. I didn't feel as though he was looking through me when we made eye contact. Its a stretch to say it felt great, but it was a step that went okay.

This evening was entertaining if nothing else around our house. My son and I decided to help out by putting together a new desk for my wife. The instructions said it goes together in less than an hour. Yeah, right. Four hours later it appears to be staying upright as long as no one gets too close. At least we're laughing which is much better than where things have been in the past.

Free, I agree with you about the power of this thread. It's one of the first places I go to in the morning and one of the last places I check before bed - it's so good to hear about all the positive things that people are finding in their lives.

I have just had a session with my psychiatrist which was very positive - just spent time looking back over the last couple of years and realising how far I've come in the last six months or so. We spoke about finding myself again, as I seem to have lost sight of that person, and about how I 'bought into' some of the fantasies of my ex. Much of my recent insight into what has been happening has come from posts on this site and I want to thank you all for the opportunity to be part of this community.

This afternoon I have the first joint session with my eldest son and his counsellor - I really feel that this will be the start of true healing for
our relationship.

I'll be therapied out by this evening!!

This thread is even more powerful than I hoped it might be when it got started. The credit goes to everyone who has offered so much positive. I bow to you all a deep gasho, a deep gasho, a deep gasho.

Tonight is another spagetti night so all is right with the world. :biggrin:
