"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.

"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'.

Hi, I feel great today, no special reason, just thankful that I'm alive and well. Maybe working out helped. I have a lot to look forward to. See ya soon. Melitta

I had a hard day. Finally getting the integrals and derivative work we're doing in calculus. I hate math though. Here's what I after the middle page of my ridiculous calculus test: "Day 133: My captors continue to torment me with strange squiggly antiderivative signs and queer quixotic undifferentiable integral notations." :biggrin:

It's time to work out and watch some tennis. Andre Agassi is playing at 10 eastern time I think, if anyone is bored/interested. It should be a fun match.

Ever onward...


Matt

It snowed here today so I got to work from home and avoid the torturous commute. I also got a massage at my chiropracter's tonight, so it was a relaxing day.

Today a friend called and invited me and another friend (who I am actually even closer to though we don't advertise it cause she's my husband's parishoner) over so our kids could have a playdate. We were there for five hours. It was wonderful. The only downer was I told them the marriage wasn't going to work out, while sparing them details. The friend I'm not as close to went into how could I do this to my son, and I was able to just hear her concern and her love and release the judgement and projections she was tossing at me, knowing they said more about her than me. The friend I am closer too didn't say anything, but came to me later with tears in her eyes, saying she wasn't going to judge me, she wanted to stay friends, and her real sadness and anxiety was about not knowing what this meant. When I asked what she was talking about, she admitted she was afraid I was going to move away. I had no idea I meant that much to her. I was touched.

Tomorrow I need to do some work on the paperwork for the divorce. I see my lawyer on Tuesday.

I'm feeling much better. Talked to my mom and my tennis coach. My coach gave me a book by Jung that he likes, which should be interesting.

Frick.

I had to say it. My bad. :wink:


Take care,

Matt

Spent way too much time goofing off today, though I did get some things accomplished. I think I'm emotionally preparing to do the work I have to do tomorrow to be ready for Tuesday-- it feels huge and exhausting and I'm probably blowing it out of proportion. Anyway, if I get all my goals accomplished tomorrow, I'm going to celebrate with a little fun. If I don't I'll just find a babysitter and finish up that way. In any case, the house chaos can wait for another day while I get my internal world in order.

I'm glad to hear things are moving forward for you Hes. I little goofing around is sometimes just what the doctor ordered.

Speaking of doctors. The stress off the past few weeks seems to have caught up with me and I'm down and out with a cold as we head into spring. I'm definitely celebrating the arrival of the season but doing so from the comfort of home. I'm going to take care of myself today and stay home rather than be a hero and give everyone else my cold.

The past few months have taken an emotional toll on my entire family as we work through my son's newly admitted adiction. Over the past week I've seen a lot of changes in him which indicate we may be getting back to where things were when the wheels came off in December. He's back to working a full time job and talking about finding out how to be an adult. I cannot ask for much more than that.

All ready to meet with the attorney on Tuesday. Saved money. Ate at one of my favorite restaurants. Read some more of Humanizing the Narcissistic Style. Got the grocery shopping done. Kept getting scoped at the copy place-- one guy even did that gross "oops I dropped my pen so that I have to bend down right next to your a##" thing-- yes we women are actually on to that one and it's very annoying-- but the good news is I guess I've still got it and who knows maybe some day some nice guy will come along and the fact that I still "got it" will come in handy.:biggrin:

Dammit Hes I didn't know you ladies were so perceptive. Not that I do that, of course. I'm just a kid, I look at things from a distance :wink:

Anyway.... back to the topic of healing! I had a very good session with my therapist. He thinks I'm making process in my ability to express feelings. Which is the most important thing for me to be working on right now.

And my tennis coach said that he and I could go down to the Legg Mason tournament together this summer... he knows all the pro players there and has backstage access and all that good stuff. It should be sweet.

Take care,

Matt
