One of these days I'm going to learn to not put my best posts on threads that I know will get deleted.
Hi Samantha - been a long time.
I carry this with me; it has helped me take care of ME. Hope it helps you.
LIFE IS A THEATER
Invite Your Audience Carefully
Not everyone is healthy enough to have a front row seat in our lives.
There are some people in your life that need to be loved from a DISTANCE.
It's amazing what you can accomplish when you let go of, or at least
minimize your time with, draining, negative, incompatible,
Observe the relationships around you. Pay attention.
Which ones lift and which ones lean?
Which ones encourage and which ones discourage?
Which ones are on a path of growth uphill and which ones are going downhill?
When you leave certain people do you feel better or feel worse?
Which ones always have drama or don't really understand, know or appreciate you?
The more you seek quality, respect, growth, peace of mind, love and truth around you...the easier it will become for you to decide who gets to sit in the front row and who should be moved to the balcony of Your Life.
"If you cannot change the people around you, CHANGE the people you are around."
Remember that the people we hang with will have an impact on both our lives and our income. And so we must be careful to choose the people we hang out with, as well as the information with which we feed our minds.
We should not share our dreams with negative people, Nor feed our dreams with negative thoughts.
It's your choice and your life..... It's up to you who and what you let in it......
I just heard Sting's "Every Breath You Take" with the stupid Snow Patrol song, in the same song.. DEFINITELY made me sad! And too.
It hurts my heart so bad to watch my little boy have to endure pain week after week. His surgery is STILL not healing properly. He has reactive tissue growth and needs its removal every week. He shakes in pain while they're working on him. He even screams during some of it. I just wish i could take all his hurt away. He's been through way too much in his short life. I hate that we have to go back again next week. I'm sooo booking a hotel room with a pool and hot tub for a treat as soon as he's done with all this crap. He's missed out on swimming most of the summer.
It sounds so trivial compared to everyone else's issues... but I just wish my boyfriend were here to make me feel like I'm worth something.
You shouldn't have to rely on having a boyfriend to make you feel like you're worth something. That is trivial and that's what makes me sad today.
My three day holiday weekend is slowly shrinking because of the amount of work I have to get done for work. Boo!!
You ARE worth a lot, all by yourself. Always.

My step mom has lost 4 siblings and a nephew this year.
I came to my moms house today and I saw the damage from yesterdays storms, and we did lose a lot of our beautiful old trees. There's going to be very little shade now, and mowing is going to be a biiiiiitch.
I was woken up in the middle of the night by two people arguing. I still don't know if it was an adult and child or two adults. It was horrific to listen to, as it sounded like they were being hit and things were being smashed. The victim was begging for them to listen and to stop and that they didn't do whatever it was the other person thought they did. What's worse is that I didn't know where they were. There's a large park right behind my house, and sound travels really well across it from the houses on the other side. I don't know if they were in the park or in one of the houses. I called the police anyway, because it needed to stop. I don't know if the police came and that's why it eventually stopped or what, but it was so horrible to hear.
...when a woman doesn't respect other women or their relationships.
(and thank you to the women who have noticed and have been supportive. thank you for being *real* friends)
More anxiety than sadness. Still haven't received confirmation yet.
Uh huh...those types of women need a slap upside the head to knock some sense into their noggins.
Sending wee hugs your way. You will get that confirmation soon, Lainey, and then you can start to breath easier.
Sorry you had to hear that That is very sad indeed.
Edit: Never mind ... I'm just going to PM you instead.
A few things are making me sad right now.
I just graduated, and as such I am now super far from a lot of my friends, and it sucks seeing them so rarely, or not at all.
Also I have no job, and no plans to go back to school for another year, so I am kind of stuck in some stupid limbo of absolute nothingness.
Generally I am just feeling really lonely. It wasn't so bad before, but this summer I've been on a few dates and nothing really panned out, and that kind of made it worse.
Oh well. At least Doctor Who is on tonight.
My exhaustion. I don't even feel like going out tonight.
