"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'.

Both boys went to school this morning. Things are quiet. I have time to reflect on all the good friends I have who are being amazingly supportive.

Yesterday I got a phone call from somebody I have not heard from in 8 years. I am ashamed that I had lost touch with him as he did me an enormous favour in 1982. I was living in Oz but on a temporary visa and was told that I would not get my visa renewed and would have to return to UK (which I did not want to do). He married me so that I could get citizenship (hope nobody from Immigration is reading this!!). Anyway he is coming up my way next weekend so we are going to get together. It will be nice to have some time with an 'ex' that does not have the emotional baggage!

Well I got stood up for Valentine's Day, but on the positive side, I finally got my new bedroom furniture. :claphands: So I spent my Valentine's Day evening sorting through clothes, but I also had the pleasure of throwing out all of the CHEAP lingerie my ex-boyfriend gave me. That was refreshing. :devil:

Kind of sad to see how folks spent Valentines. It seems the most excitment involved hockey. Even though I like hockey its hard to get into a real romantic mood with all that violence. :puppylove:

I spent a very quiet weekend. Its the first time in years there was no one in my life that I thought was special. I think this was good but it was kind of an odd feeling. Lets be opptimistic and count it as a positive.

My mood is getting a little better lately since spring is approaching and the sun is staying out longer. It's supposed to go down to 12 degrees tonight however, so I guess I'll have to stick it out a while longer.

I have got all the holes in the walls plastered and a glazier is coming out tomorrow to fix the 2 broken windows (they're aluminum sliders and I can't do them myself!). I'm counting this as a positive as I get depresed sitting looking at all the destruction - I can't get motivated to do anything when the house is like that.

Still sooooo sick. Positive is fever broke. Was so depressed about marriage yesterday. And terrified about future. Decided it was normal terror fueled in part by vulnerability of illness. Somewhat better today.

I'm currently very busy with a project at work that makes me feel good because it has a chance to really reach kids at risk of NPD and some other serious disorders. Right now is program development which I enjoy and it gets me fired up. Next is fund raising which is another story altogether.... I'll enjoy the moment while I can. :cookiemonster:

I was finally secure enough in myself to tell my NPD that I can no longer continue to have any contact with him as things stand. I was able to do this with love and kindness, and it is absolutely amazing how much better I feel to not have the burden of caring more for his feelings than my own on my shoulders, but also in having the confidence, and security to say, this is what is what is best for me, without feeling like a "bad" person for doing it.
He was very upset and cried and begged me not to "leave him", but I was able to say I am still your friend and I'm not going anywhere, but I am choosing to take care of me 1st. I can't think of anything more refreshing than saying those words and meaning it.

My boss is away at another conference today and tomorrow so there's no adult supervision at the office. :claphands: We're beginning to see signs of winter changing to spring as we're getting rain instead of snow. In other words things are looking up. This has been the worst winter I've been through in a very long time. At least I avoided complaining about it, much. This has actually been a productive week. Next week starts a period of fundraising that will make me groutchy so I'm going to do everything I can to enjoy the next few days.
