I Am Trying To Accept The Things I Cannot Change

    will. Would that I could dispel the hurt That maims me still. Maybe then I could seize peace. But then I’d own a life With no challenge, no unknown, No chance for victory, No reason to atone. I’d be clutching to my breast That which if it is confessed, Is something all...

    Husband 73 diagnosis stage 4 lung cancer.

    So many emotions, I am not ready to say goodbye. He is not ready to say goodbye. I feel sick to my stomach like someone punched me in the stomach. I am trying to be supportive, the cancer has spread to his hip and he only has a small part of the hip that cancer has not destroyed...

    Those little itty bitty things

    that I'd love to change if I had the power, alas I do not. So I'll stick to doing my best for me, day in and day out that build me up. Long road to hoe, he's got the other end of the 60 years so together we'll make it. I also know that I can't kill the moaning whinging...

    The last few months of my life have been

    absolute hell. I've felt so alone and trapped by the sadness inside. For a 13 year old girl my personality is very mature, sarcastic and smart-mouthed, even at times my thoughts can be dark and evil. I don't know what to think of myself. I don't know if I'm a good or bad...

    Note to self: There's no point scratching

    and clawing at the gnarled and muddy banks of regret. The raft is rickety, the torrents run wild, any moment you could just capsize, hit a rock, sink like a stone. Hold on, for just around that bend things will settle and you'll allow yourself to drift on. You will build...

    I am accepting the things I can not change.

    I'm accepting the loneliness, the heart ache, and the independence. I will learn to be strong on my own and blossom into the person I want to be. In times of sadness I will allow myself to wallow in my self pity until I feel like I'm back to normal. People do this all the...

    When my wonderful girl left me

    after almost 12 years, I was so hurt and shocked. Especially when I found out who she'd left me for. I had cancer when she left me. And I must admit that I had given up. When I left, I took our son with me. Not to hurt her, not for revenge, but because she had the girls, the...

    I want to let go of him. I want to get over how much he hurt me. I want to stop feeling heartbroken. I want to let go. I don't know how to let go. If I simply choose to let go, won't I just keep see sawing back and forth between letting go and holding on? I just want to let go...

    but I'll just first say that I can't do anything remarkable. I'm not special. I'm not good at anything. I'm just ordinary. I try so hard to change that, but nothing I do is good enough. I'm slowly starting to rethink all of this. I'm starting lose hope. I'm not seeing a...

    I can't change that I drove her away.

    but I'm better now. I removed myself from the people that were toxic on my life. But she can't stand me anymore but she's always on my mind. it's gotten easier to cope. But I still think about her every single day. no one on this earth is like her. no one compares.

    I'm still working on the marriage issue.

    It's not going so well. Today my husband told me that he basically has been using his mom and everything else has an excuse for his behavior and said the real reason is that "he's never loved me as a wife". I don't even know how to respond to that or what to think. I've given...

    Just because you choose not to be with someone

    does not mean you don't love them. It means you knew love was not enough to make it work and it was a unhealthy relationship.. But now I am being called fake and cold for it? I can't change how people judge me but I suffer pain from leaving the relationship also.
