My mother and I have never really gotten along and the trip was no different.
I STILL will answer Questions on You Tube…email me at [email protected]– and when I make videos, it will be in the queue. When I access FB, I click on the FB Support group immediately when I go on and that’s about it.They can’t seem to use it without witnessing something about the ex or a friend of the ex or a relative of the ex.I’ve seen the havoc it plays with those trying to get over a relationship.To keep the group safe, we do not approve anyone who does not answer the questions OR who JUST joined Facebook. Facebook.com/groups/Getting Past Your Breakup Because Psychology Today proved themselves to be made of a group of cowards, (read about it HERE) I am republishing all my Psych Today articles on here!!! Kennedy once said that as we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them. I am always humbled by being in a position to give even one person a small ray of hope, especially on a difficult day like a holiday.If you don’t want to do FB because you’re NC and FB is a trigger, email me your real name and FB profile and then the NEW FB profile so I can approve it. We may be fine before the holiday, but holidays and anniversaries and birthdays can trigger all kinds of unexpected sadness and anxiety.My life would not be possible without others who helped me during those very bleak and dark days when I was depressed, anxious, borderline suicidal and feeling hopeless.
I remember driving down the road and the only way to avoid driving the car into a wall was to keep chanting, as tears streamed down my face, “I am a child of God and God loves me.” Someone gave me that to say when I was sitting in a therapist’s waiting room and my hands were physically shaking.
Please keep in mind that during the past few months I have been struggling with the break-up with my ex, who is a full-blown narcissist.
I am not exaggerating and he meets, I believe, 8 of the criteria for narcissism.
I had not yet learned, as Arnold knew, that love is an action.
And I had not yet insisted on it from absolutely everyone.
