"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'.

Alright. Sam skit number 3.

Matt: Yo Sam. I've got good news and bad news. Which one do ya wanna hear?

Sam: I'll take the bad news of course.

Matt: The bad news, for you, is that NPDers are starting to heal and that they think you're a joke.

Sam: Damn me. Damn you. Damn all of you. And the good news?

Matt: The good news is that I just saved a bunch of money on my car insurance by switching to GEICO.

Sam: But they don't have that in Macedonia...

Matt: I saved, Sam. I SAVED. I thought that meant something to you...

Matt, Its past time for you to forget Sam and get on with your life. :rolleyes:

I had a GREAT weekend. I'm learning to like summer because that's when the good looking girls move into the apartment complex. :cookiemonster: This weekend I volunteered to help a new neighbor wash her car. We got to talking about stuff and I learned she was a person. We are going to the movie's tonight and she is paying. You cannot ask more than that. :evillaugh:

I decided to come out from under my rock and see how the civilized world lives. Now if somone would be so kind as to point me in the direction of the civilized world. :allgone:

I met with my counselor last week and he says I'm in pretty good shape credit wise to graduate more or less on time and stand a good shot at grad school. Which is amazing after what happened two years ago. Last year was better but not a walk in the park. So I guess things are going more or less in the right direction.

I watched the last part of South Park Weekend on Comedy Central last night: 6 episodes of good belly laughs.

Back from my loooong vacation-- can't wait to see my little guy! On vacation, I met someone, I would like to say nice but he really wasn't, nothing much happened, mainly we just talked a few hours, had some drinks, he was married and sorta narcissistic (ok, really narcissistic and clueless about it) and I wasn't gonna go there, but the good news is he kissed me, and I didn't feel the least bit guilty, which I think shows I've made excellent progress regarding emotionally distancing from my husband. Hurrah! (Also learned not to go for drinks with gorgeous men who are married-- it's asking for trouble!) (He was sooo gorgeous I wish I had a picture because no one will ever believe me!!!) lol

The other good news is I met a couple of other very nice and available great looking men who were interested and I was able to stay very clear with myself that I am not ready even for a little fling, but it was great to know that I still got it!!!

I STILL GOT IT!!!!

It's going to take forever to catch up at home and I have to do that before I can catch up here but I have at least read all the positives-- sounds like some good things are happenin'...

Welcome back, Hes. Its good you are able to have some interaction and even a kiss without feeling guilty. I'd say that counts as a HUGE positive for you.

I had such a great therapy session today that I'm enjoying just writing that. It was the best I've had in a long time. I feel I was derailed for a while but its starting to come back. I hope I have the strength not to get derailed again. sh-t there is a little NPD mind game so I'll just enjoy the moment and focus on love. I love the way my therapist says love. He makes it sound like a journey worth taking. :cookiemonster:

For the first time since New Year's Day I actually wrote in my journal last night. I'm not sure why I ever stopped doing it, because it helps. A LOT. Hopefully, this time I will continue.

Hes, I know exactly how you feel. It's fun!

Its been an interesting 24 hours. Last night I had a dream for the first time in a while. I have only a vague image of dreaming but it might be an indicator I'm coming back to where I was before all hell broke lose in my life. I'm trying to relax and see what happens, but its hard. I so badly want to be in control of my emotions. But I'm working on it so thats a positive :cookiemonster:

I'm long overdue for a positive. So here it goes.

I've decided that a year of being miserable is enough and I'm in the job market again. I feel a little stressed but so far I feel like I'm doing the right thing. You might want to keep checking and if I'm getting really cranky its a sign the search is not going well.

My ex and I had dinner together last night. He told me about his nenewed committment to therapy after his first session with his therapist. I tried to be supportive and detatched at the same time. Let's just say I cautiously opptimistic.
