It is so hard when it feels like we fight through so much only to be knocked down again. But you have overcome soooo much! You have survived a lot and are a compassionate and sensitive person. You could have become hard or mean, but you chose not to. YOu could have given up but you didn't. Just those things in themeslves are huge and worth celebrating.
I don't have any pat answers, and I sure wouldn't want to waste my time or yours giving pat answers, but one thing I try to do is to find the little things in a day to be thankful for, and I am having to learn to be my own best friend. I thought my husband would understand me like I always wanted, and he has his moments, but he consistently fails to understand me like I feel I need. So I guess I figure I am that person who can love me best like I always wanted to be loved. Maybe it is time to just take a few moments each day and do something kind for yourself to remind you of how far you have come. Life can get intense and it clouds our vision from really seeing all the belssings around us and all the progress we have made.
...but then there are better days and better times, or even just better moments, that remind us that good is stronger than bad - and we will be okay. And those moments - hang on tightly to them. I really believe that even if life is hard, there is always someone somewhere who loves you and cares about
you. There are compassionate people all around us, even if we don't always know it. Love never leaves and somehow we are all in this together...and to me, just knowing there is love and compassion in this world - even when I can't seem to connect to it, that also gives me strength to keep going. You're not alone.
take good care of you, manyembers
