I Am Seeking Inner Peace

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 9,907 People

    Did a lot of drugs. Joined the Navy.

    Went to college, met a girl, went to grad school and got a PhD in engineering, got married, had two kids. Was told "I never loved you, I only wanted (smart) kids." As the divorce proceeded, I bought a motorcycle. I wrecked that bike, and it literally killed me. That whole...

    Melancholy Peace.

    Like shaking my hair from the tight constraints of school girl braids I set forth on foot to cast off my melancholy shadows.  Low hanging, quick silver clouds blanket the sky, holding the sun in their loose, hazy grasp...

    It's a very early Sunday morning here.

    .. I should be asleep, but am not. I woke up about two hours ago to a completely wet bed and incoherent husband. He has diabetis and such nightly blood sugar drops are nothing new. Yet- I feel things have changed again... I used to want to take the responsibility for his illness...

    Seeking Inner Peace? You search inner peace in

    drugs and alcohol, in gambling and dice. You search it in haram money and music and in dens of the vice. In the dead of night you disobey Allah, will your heart be at ease? Hankering after this world will you ever find inner peace? Will never end your search, will never...

    After years of letting stress

    and life take a toll on my mind and body. I am looking deep with my soul to find my happy place once again. I need to find that joy and love which only come from within me. So that nothing in this world can shake my core again.

    We all do our best to stay positive,

    but occasionally we can slip into negative thinking patterns that can wreak havoc on our lives. We might worry about our past mistakes or current stresses, and how these could lead to negative outcomes in the future. We might obsess about or over-analyze regular experiences and...

    I would like to let go of a guy I known

    for many years. We have 4 kids together and we have outgrown each other. He has done things I would wish on my worst enemy. I feel like it's too much wasted energy and want peace.

    and I wonder why I love what I do. I am not a "sitter" I can not stand to be idle. This is a tough time of year for me. I love my kids and spending time with them is wonderful, but it leaves me with too much quiet time. I reflect on what could be, what should be, and it's not...

    I'm not looking for a dollar,

    some new direction in pursuit of gain...some mindless exploration of the meaning of life. How can something so priceless be so valuable? Its time to put away the microscope there's nothing left to see, the search is over its just me!

    Freedom

    How can you accept yourself today?

    My best advice is in three small words: be a duck! Let the judgment and criticism from others slide off your beak like water, swim how you want to swim, look goofy with your bum in the air, make silly sounds, do whatever makes you happy without caring what anyone else thinks...

    Ten Rules For Being Human

    I've found inner peace myself.

    It's the most wonderful feeling, coming to terms that the only thing that matters, is the exact moment you're in. The past is gone, don't dwell on it. And the future is not set. Focus on right now. Through meditation I got away from the stress that was created by the weight of...
