"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'.

But Hewho, you are so cute with those pom-poms!:lol: Sometimes, I just crack myself up...

After meeting with our pediatrician, it came home to me what a cloud our little boy had been living under while his dad still lived here. In addition, he has some very understandable anger at me because somehow he knows I'm the one who made dad move out (gee, wonder how that happened....) So, I have structured our time more tightly by adding lots of fun things to do. This is a way to build in boundaries without it being something he resents. It also offers lots of opportunities to discipline with positive reinforcement. And it means less TV which seems to help him behave better. Today, we had a class at the zoo about elephants. I thought he was bored, but when he talked to his dad, he went on and on about it, and I was amazed by how much he had learned. He is also on the waiting list for play therapy.

I'm reading about Einstein and the special theory of relativity. Who knew time and space could be so interesting.

http://vanadium.rollins.edu/~dario/phys230/Gamow/wonderland.html gives a wonderful little story to demonstrate Einstein's theory if anyone is partial to science.

Take care,

Matt

The mental picture of Hewho in pom-poms is well, :scary:

I went on a long walk this afternoon and enjoyed just being present and alive. After the last week it was the best feeling I think I've ever felt.

Re: 1,000 positive stepping stones on the path to healing ( 17:33:44 FriMay 7 2004 )

This has been a stressful, very busy week. I have lots to catch up on after getting sick last week. I continue to think alot about members here and the others in my real life and my mind feels as though its on overload. So I was grateful for a refreshing blast of humor from a rather unexpected source this morning.

I was riding with my new boss to a session in juvenile court. We had a real fear this would prove to be a very tense session, with victim and offender looking for blood. I was all seriousness when we stopped for gas. We parked next to a very large Dodge truck that was American to the bitter end. Old glory flying high, along side a confederate flag, a bumper sticker proclaiming proud to be an American, and a bimbo on the flaps with rather large boobs.

As we were driving away my boss shouted at the driver that he needed to get a more maucho truck. He than mocked this tough guy saying the boobs on his bimbo were way too small. What is this country coming too?

The court session was every bit as ugly as we feared, but we both snickered throughout, probably leaving the entire court wondering what we were smoking. :mpdhumor:

1 more AP exam to go.

I've also been reading some more of "Compassion and Self-Hate" by Theodore Rubin. It's a very good book, and I recommend it to anyone who's a regular here.

Time for tennis now...

Had a long talk with my tennis coach about find a passion in life. He thinks the rut I'm in right now is due to my struggling too hard intellectually, and not letting my true feelings move me. He's stuck in a similar place in life and hasn't broken through yet, but I hope one of us will.

Take care,

Matt

Your tennis coach hit the nail on the head I think Matt. I know I have to take breaks from the "self-help" books and read a trashy novel once in a while. You can only work so hard. I think the more a person reads and analyzes the bigger their expectations get and the more let down they are that they haven't figured it out yet.

On to my positive. I cleaned and cleaned yesterday for about 5 hours and my house is starting to resemble a place where someone might actually want to live. Ran into a couple tough spots when I stumbled across my wedding album and some photos from a surprise b'day party I threw for my ex, but had a short cry and got on with it. More of the same today. Hopefull by the end of the day, I'll have a place I can be comfortable with!

Have a great day!

Mel

My friend is back from UVA and there's only one more week of serious high school left. Things are looking up.

Goodbye,

Matt
