I want to lay down and go to sleep and someone to wake me up when my life is in order. Problem is that I don't think that will work - but hell I have tried everything else to no avail so maybe that is a good plan. Just go to bed.
I mean it has to get better, doesn't it??

Dammy,
I'm so sorry that you are feeling this way. Is there something specific that happened recently to make you feel bad? I am here for you sis! You will get through it.

I'm sorry about what you are going through Dammy. The worst hurt that we have is when its our heart that takes the hit. I can understand how you are feeling... 6 years is a very long time to be in a relationship and it will take some time to get over. You said that you were interested in this other guy. Was this right after you broke up with your boyfriend? Do you think that this other guy was a soft fall for you? Are you still seeing this other guy? I hate to use the term "rebound" because it has such a negative reputation (I guess the actual word makes it that way) but it sounds like that is what the new guy is. If he is a jerk or an idiot it may be that it is not so bad that he in fact is your "soft fall" (I like that term better, don't you?). I know that sounds awful doesn't it??? Be patient sweetie... good things are bound to happen and things can only get better. Look at it this way, yes 6 years is a long time but aren't you glad its over now and didn't go on any longer? You deserve better. As Rosie said "it is always darkest before the dawn"

Dammy,
 
Just look at it this way like I do. I always say, "It can't get any worse, can it"? Then I think about some other poor person who is suffering and I feel bad. It is so easy for us to be depressed because we are the only one's who know what we are going through. No one else gives a rats behind because they have their own problems. The way I see it is if we help each other, things would be a lot more tollerable. What do you think?

There is no such word as can't. Can't simply means wouln't. Grab as much as life as you can. Future is a long way away for those who don't believe. Don't build a foundation of life on sand. It will take it away with the tide. Love a little more, be unkind a lot less.

Dammy,
You made me laugh when I read you last reply. So true. Obviously, if we could take care of ourselves we wouldn't be here. Tell you what. I throw a "pity party" and you are the only one invited. No one else cares or gives a rats behind. Hows that! (smile)

Dammy,

Sorry to hear things are so rough right now. I struggle to get out of be each morning lately. I do because there isn't anything else to do but go to work. I was speaking to my Bishop last night and he asked me a question Ihve been pondering since. He asked if I was willing to give up everything to be better? Of course my quick response was yes, but after thinkng more on it I am coming to understand what "eveything" means. Am I willing to give up old thoughts, habits, and natural instincts. Am I willing to give up the times when I feel sorry for myself? And the list goes on and on and on. But the good thing is after taking such an inventory, I find that I am willing to give it up an dneed to look to a Higher Power to do so. Good luck and hope you find relief soon!
We can respond to irritation with a smile instead of scowl, or by giving warm praise instead of icy indifference. By our being understanding instead of abrupt, others, in turn, may decide to hold on a little longer rather than to give way. Love, patience, and meekness can be just as contagious as rudeness and crudeness.
