Then he took some clear light and knew he was a prince.

Takes a lot more to stop this mouth, or fingers...yeah, frogs have fingers, little pointy ones with a web.

If we can't laugh, we are doomed.

It's not so bad that he's a frog. It's just sad he thinks he's a prince. To me, it would be much better to admit you're a frog that wants to be a prince, then make it happen - than to live in a fantasy world ...

But then ... we're talking about a frog here..........

Yep, and there's the difference. It's cool how sometimes just writing it down helps us to see the answers to our problems.

Much love,

Wait until I do the thing on hope.

I was stripped of my prince title, I said 'Thank you' to a rag picker. This ain't Disney you know, this 'Merica.

1) Yes, that answer will come.

2) ribbit

You choose. \:\)

3) There really is no answer - it's all pointless anyhoo.

1) A prince is different from the frog only in his privileges inn the world and the ease of his life, neither of which is deserved or says anything about his worth. The problem isn't that the frog is just a frog, the problem arises when the prince thinks he's better than the frog and the frog loses sight of the fact that he's not less than the prince.

And both of those problems are matters of how the two view things. The sad part is that while the prince's arrogance will never make him a real prince, so long as the frog is convinced he's just a frog, that attitude will hinder him from rising to achieve his true potential and show himself his real worth.

Or that's how it looks to an ex-frog.

Much love,
Larry

A frog who sees himself as a frog is being honest with himself.

I have known some frogs in my time... A LOT of frogs. But 2 come to mind at the moment.

I knew one frog who did ok. He sat around on his lily pad and ate flies and got along ok. The other frog was always pushing himeself to be the best he could. He worked on his jumping, he worked on fly-catching, he even practiced kissing handsome princes (did I mention he was a gay frog?) just in case. He knew he was a frog, but he wanted to be the froggiest frog he could be. Both were great frogs. But the second frog seemed to be more content - like he knew he was doing his best and pushing himself to always reach as high as he could.

By the way, both had been abused as tadpoles.

I think I read in the paper that one of them croaked \:\)

Happy hopping
Dan

Mark, I'm sorry. I was trying to be light hearted. I was not trying to make a joke of this, just to point out that you are doing so many wonderful things to help yourself heal. Please forgive me if I came across as insensitive - that was not my intention at all - I am truly sorry, my friend. I think you know me well enough to know that I would never be intentionally cruel... but I made a mistake and for that, I'm sorry,

Dan

It's not you, Dan. Just know it's not you. I'm in a very bad spot right now and I hurt more than I've ever hurt before.

I'm torn between my heart, my "belief system" and my current life situation. The CSA therapy is taking its toll. Sometimes it's just so much.

Just know it's not you. It's me. The de-evolving frog.
