there is so much more to you and your life than the relationship between you and your husband. (This goes for you too Hold!!)
I had this problem too for awhile. I kept coming back to seeing myself only through the lens of my relationship with Daryl. I donâ€™t do it anymore. Iâ€™m so much more. Iâ€™m everything. I donâ€™t ever see myself through a single lens now. It keeps me from getting dragged into the abyss.
Yes I get sad moments. Mad moments. Crazy moments. But they cannot endure because Iâ€™m ALL my parts. And all my facets need my attention.
All your facets need your attention LG. Thatâ€™s how you shine. And you DO shine. Youâ€™re a rare and precious thing. Donâ€™t forget for a second that you are.
Just WOW, M.
Finding an ethical way to deal with pain, fear, disappointment etc..is part of the experience of becoming a stronger person...one who is driven by compassion instead of compulsion...ie I have a legitimate reason to be stressed out right now...however, my response to it will determine how others percieve me, and myself.
