My question to all of you is this, how does one overcome? Does this process have to remain a constant bitter struggle?
We overcome it one day at a time, one step at a time, with a lot of hard work, introspection, tears, laughter, anger, and determination. And no, it does not have to be a "constant bitter struggle", though at times it can sure be just that. But you know what, there will be times when you have those "light bulb" moments and you realize some truth concerning your journey. When that happens it will make all the difficulties worth the effort. Really!
Welcome, Friend. Come on in, pull up a chair, and we'll spin a yarn or two, maybe shed some tears together, and for sure we'll spend some time laughing together. We'll make this journey together helping each other along.
Lots of love,
