Hope you feel better soon, David - big hugs
Take care xx
Just keep going and try not to be too hard on yourself... :) Everyone has weak moments...
You will manage - you're really strong and you really want to do this, for yourself and your family. Tuxi's right - we all have bad moments
and we shouldn't be too hard on ourselves (as I know only too well). Hope things improve, David - big, strengthening hugs.
Thanx Juno, Tuxi :), Anna, Cindy :), Kat, & Amanda. I just wish a I was a better person ...
Thanx desdmonia & Tasha

Thanks Esther, Tasha, Anna, Amanda & desdmonia. :)
Esther, probably nothing exceptional, but just having them around is a big comfort. We'll probably go climbing a couple of times :)
So sorry you're feeling low, David - I certainly relate to your feelings (I'd like to be left alone *most* of the time. I'd wondered how you were doing, as I hadn't seen you post.
Hope your low passes quickly - big, comforting hugs for you.
Thanks all for the hugs and Cindy for the kind words. Big hugs back
Hope you feel better soon x
Thanks Anna and Tasha :) ... Feeling better now
Good luck with this week
Sounds good! Keep it up! :-)
Thanks pandas <3
... speeding and crawling through lives mostly on autopilot, with moments of purpose, chaos, despair, and enthusiasm.
Hmm thts deep. Thank u 4sharing. Big hugs x
We are selfish compassionate bastards, kept upright by the tension between curiosity and cowardice, lust and duty, pride and shame.
I like tht last bit it really hits d nail on d head.
Thnx Anonmous, ... a bit of a late night philosophical release that was. Big hugs.
That was really deep, I guess sometimes these feelings are all just a part of life and of being human.
Yes Tasha, even though most of the times we just try to cruise along just to realise we haven't the faintest idea of where we are going. Hugs
Bit early in the morning for thinking metaphysical thoughts, but the ideas you express about paradoxes and tensions seem to be part of what is suggested by the picture.
I've been studying that picture a lot since you posted it, and your words are definitely illuminiating the picture for me, and vice versa.
You're right Cindy. I realise now the two posts are very much, though unintentionally, related
Kind of how I'm feeling most of the time if I really stop to think about it.
Big hugs back pandas
really glad everything went well
So pleased for you, David - especially when it sounds like you'd been put in an invidious position. You're doing so well - big hugs
Thanks Alex Cindy and H :)
Thanks Amanda and Pat :)
Thanks Anna :)
Most of all I need to put this behind, and work on implementing changes that will support me and my loved ones in the long run.
That's such a nice way of defining your goal. Hope the meeting goes okay tomorrow.
Go into details :-)
I hope the meeting goes well.... If you think going into details is likely to result in a better outcome, it may be worth it...
I hope it goes well...deep breaths.
Thanks you all for the support! Tasha, Anonmous :), Anna, Tuxi :), Amanda, Pat, HF, Cindy :), and Alexandra, ... you make my day better
Late thanks for Pat, Esther, and desdmonia :)
Glad you're feeling more positive :)
What a positive post, David - really happy for you. Hope it continues to go well
Thank you Tasha, Juno :), Chloë, Vanessa, Cindy :), Anna, Tuxi, and Amanda. Still feeling reasonably good.
So sorry, David - hope the climbing and being with your kids helps. Look after yourself; thinking of you. Big hugs

Debi gives good advice. Enjoy those moments even more than one may normally & use them to carry you thru the rough times.

Returning your big hugs - hope your mood continues to pick up.
Keeping busy always helps me feel better tho it's hard to find motivation. Mood can quickly turn sour when I stop tho. Glad MP lifts you up. It does me too!

Thanks Debi, Anna, Tasha, and Cindy. Much better now after a couple of hours. But as I said, Debi, it's not just the head, its hard facts that I have to deal with. I'm sure I'll cope, ... somehow

Thanks Tuxi and Esther. The day was good. The return home not quite. Got something in the mail that made me cry
