I'm sorry you are going through that, Deb! I'm glad, though, that you are looking out for yourself. I care about you and want the best to happen to you. Thanks for letting us know what's going on. I know fear can make guys, especially tough Marine type guys, retreat and break off contact with their support network - however, that's not your responsibility. So don't feel bad about loving. Everybody wants love and everybody deserves it.View Thread
Yes, I had to clean my screen, only I was at work and now my boss is mad! Ha ha ha, just kidding. You watch out for them guvmint types. And I know where Achmed is, he's under Hillary's bed along with her secret files.
I'll send you a new Human Race Membership card, too.View Thread
I think I figured something out and it's a little odd - I'm wriging it here so I'll hopefully remember it better when the self doubt is kicking my butt.
What if my persistent feeling of being worthless has actually led to some positive things? After all, the drive to make something of myself, and not just be a waste of breath, is one of the reaons why I love helping others so much. So it's led to good things too.
The key is, now that I can say I do help others through my work and elsewehre, and I do contribute to society, I must now accept that there are some good things about me. And treating myself badly is no better than treating anyone else badly.
Ha ha ha, well, you know what I look like because you have a copy of my book! And my mom didn't have any other kids. Still, the best family is who we choose. Thank you again for your support. It means a lot.View Thread
It's really hard for me to give you advice without knowing more about the situation. It sounds like your boyfriend took you away from your job when he said you were going to live with his cousins' family? If that's the case, are you able to work where you are currently living? Or is he the type who insists he needs to do all the work and you have to stay at home, but he doesn't have a good enough job to take care of both of you?
My responses are admittedly going to be skewed, considering that I am a female primary breadwinner. But I'd like to help if I can or at least offer some support.View Thread
