"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'.

Yesterday I admitted to a friend that I had made a serious mistake that had caused him and several other people a lot of pain. I was able to apologize and tell him how I'm trying to make amends and improve myself. He accepted my apology and said it was a relief to have this out in the open. I don't know that everything is cool between us but I feel a lot better and I think he does as well.

Balbrenny, thanks for sharing and reminding us how blessed we are to have our families. Taran, good work-- Intersting you should mention it today, because this morning I started thinking about if it is possible to make amends to my husband for some things I have done wrong, and is it safe to do so. I will proceed with caution and not do anything until I spend some time in therapy. It may not be possible to make amends. It is even possible that I am again being hard on myself and there is nothing to make amends for beyond the amends I am already making...

Today is gray and cloudy and it's hard to be positive. But I am trying to get some things done, take care of myself, and prepare to go visit my family next week. My son comes home in the morning-- HURRAH!

Doing Great Friendly!

I had a fabulous four days off with my babys boys, two and a half days of work and we get to hang out again!

Lately, it just feels good to be alive! Sappy, but true.

I don't know that's sappy to feel good about being alive. I actually think its kind of a nice feeling. :smile: The most positive thing I can say right now is my family is facing our demons head on rather than avoiding them and hoping they go away. The end result is still somewhat of a mystery but we're haning in there.

I really feel better about myself for going through and admitting a mistake that has bothered me for a long time. Truthfully I cannot believe how much better my body feels about this. There is less tension, finally. It makes me think the thought of facing some of these things is worse than actually doing it. I am a master at freaking myself out. Maybe this is the start of something. I hope so because I like this feeling. :cookiemonster:

The snowstorm which has dumped on the northwest has really changed the family plans and round two of Christmas may be delayed until next weekend. Just keeps the suspense alive, I guess. :ohwell:

Meanwhile my positive is that I've gotten an amazing amount of work done today despite not having a boss or other adult supervision. Of course I've always been one who works better without deadlines and people breathing over my shoulder, so this is really my working vacation.

I'm so glad to see that everyone has survived ... to a more or less degree.

The positive for my day ... despite being awake for several hours in the night, my day went pretty well.

Cheers!

Today my eldest son made a huge step and made a statement to the police about the assault made on him 3 weeks ago by another boy. He has decided to proceed with an application for an Apprehended Violence Order to stop this boy coming near him in the future. This is the third beating he has had from this boy but he has been too scared to go to the police over it. He is still too scared to proceed with laying charges as he is frightened of the retaliation but he is doing something to stop it.

Still just happy to be alive! For the first time in a long time I'm not dreading anything. I have come to the realization that certain things are out of my control and therefore worrying about them isn't going to change them. It feels good. Hope it lasts.

I'm just happy to have this place to come and share. I know I wouldn't be where I am today as far as feeling good about myself without having all your support. It has been an intregral part of my healing process.

Thanks all!!

Mel
