Hi All,
Just a thought... Have you ever had the feeling that you don't really know who you are?
I have been really thinking alot about my life, and I can't help but question myself.
Sorry if this sounds crazy... Maybe it is just Menopause???????? Any thoughts?

Bless you, Amy

I was looking for ya Michelle. I was wondering where you'd gone off to! I feel that way a lot. But then I try to remember who I am and who I want to be. And realize where I fit.

Life is a journey of discovery and who we are changes every day as we experience more things, butthere is always a core being, values beliefs that stand steadfast.

You will find your way just fine.

Hi Michelle,

I find when I start thinking in these terms, I am usually not feeling very good. There are so many questions that go unanswered, and I think the meaning of life is one of them. When I start thinking in that way, I know I am thinking too much.

I think we have to accept our lives for what they are. Go with the flow of things so to speak. Try not to think too much. Like I say, there are many unanswered questions about life. Just try to live your life and be happy. Don't sweat the small stuff. And always remember to wear sunscreen. lol... That is a video that I posted the other day. I doubt anybody watched it. But it was cool.

Try not to question your life. Just try to live it. We are faced with enough challenges, and trying to figure this out will only make you more confused. Do you have a faith? Do you go to church? Sometimes that is a good place to start. But I would recommend counseling if you aren't already going. They can set you on a path of answering your own questions.

Either way, I hope that you are feeling better. Keep posting and know that we care.

Hugs, Karen

Thanks to all of you!
Karen, Yes, to answer your question. I attend church almost every sunday. I belong to a small town southern baptist church. I am a born again christian and my faith in God has helped me through many trials. I have a hard time though knowing who I can talk to in my church as it is a small town (if you know what I mean). I just recently sought help from the mental health clinic that my insurance co. referred me to. They told me that it could be 4-6 weeks before they could see me.

In the mean time I will just keep on praying and counting my blessings!

I also have issues with trust so all of this is very difficult for me... Oh well, maybe that will pass with time.

Blessings, Michelle

Hey Michelle

How are you? Just woke up and checking in.

Remember God gifts us a new day every day to love and learn and grow. Try to let Him guide you instead of fighting yourself...His plan is always the right one. Let go let God.

Have a good day
Maggie

Y'know you mentioned menopause in your original post and it struck a nerve. I remember turning 50 and really struggling with who I was and how I had not acheived hardly anything I thought I would when I was young.

Life just happens and takes us down roads we had no desire to travel and we despair and feel cheated. But now I know I am on this path and I must make this journey the best I can, because there is no turning back, only moving forward...so I guess we just need to explore and enjoy the road we are on

Love Maggie
