yeah, it's wonderful when you finally understand the nature of your issues, because that empowers you to do something about it
Those are all amazing. As for movies, I've watched We Need To Talk About Kevin, and that's art. Beautifully horrid.
The codependent in me is afraid to piss someone on here off, but god, how I hate all the Marvel movies. I hate that there are so many, and people watch them instead of, I dunno, I, Tonya, for example. That's another fantastic one. No success story,
no character winning against all odds. It's about life, and how *** it can be. It's made as a documentary, by the way. I tell you, something's up with that genre, it's in its golden age or something.
Phew. Done ranting. I used to be a ranty kind of person. I miss that sometimes. I miss wanting to convince, to find those who think alike. I've given up on that when Ivan died. We used to rant together. RIP, dear friend.
I'm also no fan of the Marvel films, but I do watch them when an actor I like is in them. Hasn't happened very often yet, thank god. I do like intelligent, beautiful and absurd stories though, but sometimes I also need to numb my mind.
It's the anniversary of his ***e today. 7 years. I miss him.
So very sorry for your loss and I'm sure the pain will never stop.
Yeah, Lydia, I numb myself, too, sometimes :)
When we get that kind of inner affirmation, it does feel good. Waiting for someone to validate us can take a lifetime. we are usually disappointed when we rely on having core needs met from the outside. The person in the dream was just a symbol...
standing in for the love that comes from within.:)
I have such situations sometimes, too... I understand how it feels
I'm sure you're right, Love, you're almost always right. Do I need validation about the fact that my ex is a weird closed- off robot person? Maybe. I know no-one can really give it to me. Will try to rely on myself more for that.
Get well soon!
I like your attitude! You don't have to paint perfect, it should be fun!
If you want some comedy podcasts, I recommend Beef and Dairy Network Podcast (not really about cows), and Athletico Mince (not really about football).
Start Beef and Dairy Network Podcast at episode 1. Start Athletico Mince around episode 35 - 45 until the recent ones (it took a while for them to hit their stride).
Thank you, John! 😚
improve his life and relationships. I'm aware it's a complex problem, though.
Played guitar yesterday, really wanted to paint but had no time. Looking forward to the weekend.
hate) that it's just more fun to piss people off than anything else. A narcissist in the making. Thank god I don't have kids.
coals ( of which there are 2 types), and a separate huge thingy for grilling. Nothing like we used to do in Russia, with just plain wood we'd just cut and chopped ourselves and some damp newspapers 😁 it had its charms, though. I love chopping wood!
We've done a bunch of shopping for mom's birthday today, too. My feet hurt, which makes sitting down to eat even better. I'm so happy these days, it's a great time for hypomania to strike 😊
I'm glad you're happy and I would love some typical German barbecue right now! Enjoy it. :)
So great to see such happiness. May it continue!
boundaries get soft again, and the inner critic flares up. Hope I do good this time.
I bet you will!
But you also have the power to make your life good! 🤗
You are growing up! 😀 it is you who makes your life good. Your attitude and zest towards it. Sometimes you might need help to get there and that is fine as well. We should take life too seriously, try to do as many fun things as you can
Wise words, Lieteke, thank you
Or whatever she's called. The rest was amazing, as close to perfect as I can imagine. No family, just us on an island in Denmark. I've fallen in love with the country, too. It's got the feel of a grandma's attic, the perfect movie version. We stayed
in an early XVIIIth century house filled up to the roof with antique furniture, books, toys, silverware and drawings. This stuff is everywhere in Denmark, in homes, in official places, in Red Cross shops. Old, gorgeous stuff - and farms, and the wind
and rain, and the sea, and fish, and ships and sailors everywhere. Aeroskobing is a magical place.
sounds beautiful! I'm happy for you!
Congratulations! 💖 this sounds brilliant, so happy for you!
Congratulations to you both!
Aw, sounds like a movie! How wonderful... congratulations!
Thank you all 💜 it really was like a movie, Jeff
Sounds incredible! Congratulations!
Thank you, dear 🤗
Some household chores make me sad. I t realize it's not because I'm no longer doing them for my toxic ex, but because I used to be sad while doing them for him. It's a habit I need to break. Painting Reclaiming Summer
Get a pic of him and cut it up it is really helpful
That is a profound revelation! I was the only chore doer in my last relationship, thinking about how ungrateful (and verbally abusive in my case) your partner was really helps put a stop to that.
sounds familiar. Hee haw. that's the braying of a mule who recognizes like.
Hee haw back to you all lovely people. Thank you for sharing you've felt the same. 💜
