I guess I am just a dumb guy and don't get it. I have read, reread, and reread now again your post on Katrina and those in its path. I did not see then, nor do I see now that you asked for response to the post other than to keep those in the path of this devistation in our hearts and prayers. Just because I didn't post a response doesn't mean that I ignored your post or your sentiments. Like I said, I must be missing something, but believe me, it would not be the first time.
Sorry you no longer feel HW meets your needs. I know that it is the same in all aspects of my life. I get out of them what I put into them. There have been times when I have felt distant from the support here, and when I take the time to look into myself, I recognize the most change has occurred inside of me and the distance brought on by my state of mind and feelings, not what others have done. I remember my therapist telling me one time when I was really angry about
something - Anger/resentment is a response to my feelings of entitlement or belief that things should be "my" way. Unfortunately there is no law of entitlement interacting with those around us. Good luck in the future wherever or whatever that might be.
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.
