    Loss Of Control

    I used to be the "got to" person among my friends. Whenever there was a problem that needed fixing or someone needed a shoulder to cry on, I was there. I was proud of my position, it gave me purpose and a sense of self-satisfaction. I never realised how little I cared...

    Working with Alzheimer's patients has

    introduced me to loss. I care for all of the residents I am blessed to visit with every week. They unwillingly call me their daughter and I tear up when they hold my hand and ask me to never leave their side. But what happens when I'm forced to let them go?

    but I'm sure it's a very common experience. Very rarely do I connect with others especially those I find judgmental. Very seldomly do I find a man who prays. Someone who loves and is honest. My heart is broken. want is the truth. When I have nothing left to say, I wish you well...

    Always....

    If I truly care about you, it is unconditional. Even if you lie to me, backstab me, take advantage, act moody and thoughtless, I still care. And I hate that. It makes me come across as weak and like I have a sign on my head saying *Take advantage, do what you want to me. I will...
