I have isolated myself from the world and I can't quite put a finger on it as to why. I would really like to have someone to share my life experiences with. Someone I could touch and someone who would want to touch me. Even if it was just holding hands.

Good morning. You sound like someone that you always play life safe. Safe is the norm. But as my pastor recently preached a series on "NORMAL AIN'T WORKING" Sometimes we need to step out of the box. If you would like to hear what he has to say, visit www.watersedgechurch.net I shared this recently with a woman that was planning her suicide. Had nothing to live for. Tonight is her second date with the third guy she has met. She has applied for more challenging jobs and has 3 interviews coming up. She is a different person.

By the way, our church is changing the way people think about church. Its not your traditional church. It ain't normal.

Thanks for your feed back.

Because you are scared to get hurt

You hit the nail on the head. I have a couple of heart wounds that go deep. I can't even write these words without my eyes tearing up.

The scars will stay but you can overcome it.. your heart is strong!

Thanks for you taking the time to respond to me. I appreciate it. I wouldn't be so wound up about my heart wounds hadn't my first wife, who left me high-n-dry for another man, contacted me on Facebook. I let my curiosity get the better of me and, oh yes, I contacted her back. Before I knew it we friended each other. I soon found out she was still with that other guy an had this amazing looking beautiful blond daughter. Well, I'm a blond too(no not mine as she was born over a decade after we split up) and it just tore me up as I have no children myself. I eventually de-friended her, but not until she got a few jabs in under the belt. Well that whole business with my ex opened up those old wounds which had long ago healed up and scared over. I'm now having dreams about all that old business again. I know no one can fix this but me and I'm not looking for anyone to fix it. I just needed someone to listen. So thanks for listening.
