It's strange, but this is the first few weeks in a long time that I have seen ''the light.'' My own. When you're a believer, you have to dim your own light lest you be treated like you're arrogant for not giving god the spotlight. I have a feeling I'm going to be angry over this for a time, not over my friends, but over the fact that I went back after my grandmother's death. That I let my emotions take me back. Anyways, I'm feeling better though, despite all of this! Blush

Thanks everyone for your kind words, it helps. Heart

Don't be angry at yourself. Hug You lost someone who clearly meant the world to you. Totally and completely understandable that religion might seem appealing during that time, especially Christianity--which promises that you'll see them again if only you believe.

And really (temporarily) going back to religion isn't a stumble at all. Use it as part of the path, part of the journey to free thinking. All parts of the path have rocks--and guess what, you made it through. Smile You're here now, still a free thinker. That's really the only part that matters.

In yoga practice, you lose your balance in poses, you get back up. Very simplistic teaching that carries over to life, but true. In life, you lose your balance along the way and you get back up--and you did. So no beating yourself up-there's no need. If anything you should be proud of yourself for allowing yourself the ability to reexamine ideas that were being swayed by emotional stressors.

the other day I was chatting with a relatively new friend , and she started talking about her recent losses. took me back to mine and I was in Costco, shopping alone. I had to quit.
Dad and I were in the old coscto here in Lakewood, they took his picture, and I was so clueless. He looked terrible that day and I did not see it till i looked at that membership card.
We went next door to the canned goods outlet, and he said " I feel weak"
I grabbed him as he collapsed and died in my arms. That was 1988 and I still have a hard time.

I'm so sorry. Heart I don't know if we ever need to ''get over'' these tough feelings. We just need to keep processing them, and try our best to live with them.

Thank you all for well wishes, but mine is an old thing. Time walls it off for the most part.

Well, she cheated. I hope that divorce isn't too expensive.

Sorry to hear this. Sending you hugs Heart I don't understand why people choose that path, instead of just telling the person they want to end the relationship.

Be true to yourself. Heart

Forgiveness is a lot cheaper. Maybe not rush into anything but give it some time so you know how you feel when not in shock... Sorry that happened to you. It sucks.

Damn. That really sucks. Are you 100% sure she cheated?

Where are we going and why am I in this hand basket?
