You can eather try to let it go, or you can choose to accept that pissed feeling. Just embrace it and watch it move inside you. But you already know this right 😉
Yes. It's a choice. This is a surface anger- with deep roots. I can accept what's here (bodily sensations, agitated mind) and ease up on the 'correctness' of my position.
You will let it go when the time comes I'm sure. Otherwise it can transform into suppression, right? Big hugs to ya, dear panda
Are these feelings related to your x-wife? Feel free to wallow
Maybe an expression of your feelings, for example a painting, a song, even a letter to her in which you express yourself fully, then burn it afterwards (if you feel like it). Or do a Rorschach, do martial arts? 💪👊 Jackie Chan the s*** out of it.
I used the energy to lift weights. Transformed some of it. Meditation to calm the mind, then reflection. As compelling as I think my narrative is, it's still just a story- not truth.
Ok, you got this. I wanna see some more mankinis on show. Flex. 👏
Oh <3. So low. Just so you know, I don't have FaceTime (I'm on android). Do you use any other messaging apps, maybe WhatsApp? Failing that, can I email you? Hugs x
it space so that whatever it here can feel safe to express and reveal itself.
Whatever is here
I'm just going to sleep now but I'm wishing you clarity. May you honour your emotions by allowing them space, feeling them deeply. Sit with them a while...
Love is sad. And that's okay. *big warm hug*
It's 130am in the UK. Night owl. Good night, Binky.
I checked and New England is not that far behind... I guess that's why they can it New England xD. Well, 5 hours, anyway.
I saw two shooting stars last night, I wished on them, but it was only satellites. It's wrong to wish on space hardware...I wish I wish I wish I care...
I don't wanna change the world...I'm not looking for a new England, I'm just looking for another girl
Jeff, have faith. Everything will be ok.
Are they song lyrics Jeff?
When you wish upon a satellite... Isn't that a Disney song?
Jeff I love this song! It's Jamie t! Hope you feel better soon love!
Thanks Kaya. Nothing lasts... including this bad spell I'm under. It'll pass soon.
But the dark mood brought me to the piano; the dark mood softened me; the dark mood opened my heart; the dark mood humbled me; the dark mood allowed me to connect to love. Thank you, beautiful suffering.
Well said and a lovely realisation, as always. Hugs
You can do it! I would like to msg but am wary of stepping out of panda bubble too quickly.
It's scary to do, Binky, but so worth it! A whole new side to Panda life! 😊
No worries. Follow your heart. Thanks for replying, too. ☺
My <3 is afraid to be vulnerable. Thanks for your understanding and patience.
This is so sweet
Aw! Cuteness overload! 😊
Good girl. She listens to her gut xD
The enteric brain.
Last decade focused on marriage, family, children, career. X destroyed that. Need to reimagine my life, double my income, focus on kids.
Big goals. At least the doubling your income I would think. You'd naturally focus on your kids since visits are limited. That must be so difficult.
I should clarify- not so much doubling income, but allowing the magic to flow so that it feels as if. Examples in my life abound. I travel for free b/c friend works for airlines. Kids go to pvt school b/c of nature of work
I received thousands of dollars in gym equip free. School district paid off my student loans. Friend gave me a drum kit, etc. So, I don't have to kill myself making more $ for this lifestyle that I choose.
Everything I need comes. Maybe I should say double the magic. Double my blessings. Double my good fortune. Actually, sounding pretty selfish and should 'be content with such things as ye have.'
Yeah, that's a much better prayer: let my heart be without covetousness... 'in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content.' or 'In everything give thanks.' Amen.
path from 6 to 1: physically tired, restless mind, awake/can't sleep, anger, lust, self-pity
On the positive side, I know this unpleasantness is temporary; these states are ephemeral. Alcohol would've been my maladaptive response to distress & would've prolonged my misery. Now, I'll just accept this, reflect, learn hopefully.
I know how I got here. 100% responsible. Stop measures not effective. Need better early warning system & decision subsystems
With God's help, I'll figure this out.
Your awareness level is amazing. Zell done on no alcohol! Hope you feel better very soon. Extra hugs and smooches
Alcohol, drugs, sex, distraction, entertainment were poor strategies I used years ago. Made my moods worse. Live, learn, grow I guess
Ouch! Sorry you felt this low, Love. Looks like you rebounded a bit though so well done!
*** happens :))
yup. Scatterbrained sometimes.
Left stove on. Burned 2nd pot in 2 days.
Oh, dear. I am like this, too, when stressed. The cards situation is especially annoying.
Thank goodness for OCD. Stuff like that would never happen to me. I check to make sure I put credit cards back in wallet multiple times after paying. My psychologist is right. Sometimes it's a positive thing.
Definitely can be a strength!
