And Maybe I'm One ...

You know me ... upbeat and optimistic ...

But tonight I'm not  feeling it ... I'm one of those disillusioned souls tonight.  Probably one of many.

It feels like I've given so much in so many ways ... and the usual cliches ... uphill battles and unsung heroes ... that sort of thing.

Give, give, give ... and there's not much I want in return ... at least I don't think it amounts to much. 

That "good talking to" that I had promised I'd give myself is long overdue ...

Time for a reality check.

That last line is a corrective to your self-perceived disillusionment, Bliss. Sometimes the cold, hard *reality* of the bullshit we are forced to face cuts through even the most positive of people's sunny dispositions.<br />
<br />
Just a thought about that word "disillusioned"... doesn't that imply that You were "illusioned" at some point? <br />
<br />
I'm sure You will be back to your normal bright 'n' breezy self soon enough.

Try to be kind to yourself, WiB. Soetimes when we give ourselves a good talking to, we come away a bit disgruntled.<br />

I tried to friend you, and I'm not sure if you saw it or not. Can't post on your WB either. Was hoping you'd remember me kindly.....<br />

"You can search throughout the entire universe for someone who is more deserving of your love and affection than you are yourself, and that person is not to be found anywhere. You yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection." ~ Buddha

Listen to it, it's telling you something. I totally understand because I've been there myself. My life started to come together when I stopped giving and giving and started investing in myself. You are a strong, wonderful, amazing woman, and a huge part of the reason I came back here, to see how you were doing. Learn to give to yourself first, and if you have anything left over, then give to those who will give back to you. It's not selfish, it's survival. I hope things get better soon. (((HUGS)))
