Therapy Tuesday

And I'm trying so hard not to cry.

How is it that when you think you're finally picking up the pieces and making a semblance of a life that you just might enjoy, your pieces start dropping out of the puzzle with alarming frequency?

I feel scattered and broken all over again. And somehow, I can't get it to stop this time.

I know I'm late to the game ... but, what is it about Therapy Tuesday that you dread so much?

Nilsa, we talk about things I would prefer to not even think about, much less say outloud. And the dead guy is still very much an issue - especially now that I've ventured into the dating world. Dredging it all up. Again.

kate - Some days you need to give in to the sadness. So maybe today sucks, but tomorrow will be better. Let today be what it is, knowing that it won't be so bad tomorrow.

Kate- my dead guy....the addict haunts me each and everytime I got close to someone...I now have a post-it note on the bathroom mirror that says.....

It is ok to have a bad day as long as it doesn't stop you from moving forward. He would want you to live laugh love and find joy in simple pleasures.

I'm not sure if that would help you; but I want you to know that feeling this way is totally normal...curl up under the blankey and watch a girlie flick....let the tears flow....but then you take a hot bath, and go buy something pretty.

~hugs~ I hope you feel better soon sweetie.... I'm in your corner for whatever you need.

I can punch someone for you if you'll smile.

THAT made me smile, Matt...

Why are you trying hard not to cry? I'm no expert, but I bet that reinventing yourself and getting better at it all the time involves a lot of doubt and a lot of crying and a lot of pieces scattered all over the floor from time to time.

For what it's worth, everybody reading this blog knows that you're doing a great job and that you're not broken. You're a work in progress just like the rest of us.

And you're a hottie and a half besides. I had to throw that in.

Some days you just need to cry. The pieces will find their way back together. Just let it out.

i think the worst part of feeling this way is that it happens without warning. it catches you off guard. but happiness can do the same. ride it out. it WILL get better.

These backward steps are the thrust that will send you ten steps forward. Remember? It always works this way you brave girl.

And by now it's Thursday and you are surely better, at least a little. Yes? of course yes...
