Thanks Pero for sharing
I guess we try to fill our lives with so much stuff so we don't HAVE to deal with the reality of our situation. I have never used sports or hobbies. (that isn't allowed in my family - only work).
Like I said to Traveler - I will be looking at my priorities.
I have never thought of giving love to myself or being patient and supportive of myself. WOW!!! Can I really do that? "I am a piece of shit - I deserve to be abused" is what I think. Thanks for openning my eyes here. I will work on that too. I guess this is something most of us face.
More than meets the eye!
