    It's Actually A Good Feeling

    I remember being asked to write about reactive listening and translation because I was told I have a "gift" by someone special in my life to read and understand people. I was at the time listening to Wayne Dyer atleast once a week and this is what I ended up writing. So...

    I'm A Nobody

     Every time I look up old friends, it seems they all have went on to do amazing things while I haven't really gone far at all.  I feel left behind and insignificant.

    Who Cares?

    I volunteered to care for my mother-in-law who has dementia.  Poor thing cannot remember that she ate 5 minutes ago.  She is still full of feelings and needs though.  Needs which I cannot meet since they have to do with a memory she cannot catch hold of. I moved...

    Insignificance

    When I was 12, my father passed away. He had suffered from a brain tumour for around 4-5 years before it took a hold of him, eventually taking his life after living for 12 months longer than the original 6 given to him by doctors in 2006. Ill never forget the morning that we were...

    Discarded And Unimportant

    My husband and I haven't been intimate in going on 12 yrs now (been married for 18 yrs). We have no children together, however he does have 2 daughters. Each one has lost and/or given up most of their kids so there's no "grandkids" running around our house. All of my friends have...

    When I try to tell my mother about how I feel,

    she always tries to say that she feels the same way, and how I'm perfectly okay. But I'm not.

    Your Cared For

    Look, my best friend says that she isn't important and people wouldn't notice if she just disappeared. Well guess what, I would, she's my rock. By for some reason, it doesn't register in her mind that I care...someone out there cares, just like I care for her. Seriously, so don't...

    Show Me That You Care...

    What do you do when something you feel you cannot live without is not working properly? You fix it. If you do something wrong, you spend hours trying to figure out how to either get it back to normal or make it better. You are a perfectionist, or so you say. Sadly for me, this...
