Absolutely Beautiful!


"AMAZING insight into ME! I AM WORTH SAVING!! And so is every other person who in a weak moment made the wrong decision that altered their life.  BABY STEPS. DEEP BREATHS. I am not saying that I don't still get weak in the knees missing what I THOUGHT was a wonderful relationship, but I am beginning to believe that I DESERVE a FULL relationship. I hope eventually I will find that, but I want to find ME again first."

So absolutely True!!!

~hugs~

I love "I Will Survive"...and "Strong Enough" by Cher is awesome too.  Actually the Taylor Swift song does not make me cry, which is another sure sign that I am "coming along"...lol....I was so weepy for a while I didn't know if I would ever stop crying.  But her song touched me.  I don't know why these type of relationships have the dynamic they do as opposed to breaking up in other relationships but I think even though I am determined to heal from this experience, I fully expect that I will always think of him and wonder if he is doing the same.  KNOWING that makes it easier to accept that he will always be a part of my PAST.  Some of the memories are worth saving. The ending, not so much.Frown

I don't need your sympathy
There's nothing you can say or do for me
And I don't want a miracle
You'll never change for no one

I hear your reasons why
Where did you sleep last night?
And was she worth it, was she worth it?

'Cos I'm strong enough
To live without you
Strong enough and I quit crying
Long enough now I'm strong enough
To know you gotta go

There's no more to say
So save your breath
And then walk away
No matter what I hear you say
I'm strong enough to know you gotta go

So you feel misunderstood
Baby, have I got news for you
On being used, I could write a book
You don't wanna hear about it

I've been losing sleep
You've been going cheap
She ain't worth half of me it's true
I'm telling you

Now I'm strong enough to live without you
Strong enough and I quit crying
Long enough now I'm strong enough
To know you gotta go

Come hell or waters high
You'll never see me cry
This is our last goodbye, it's true

I'm telling you
That I'm strong enough to live without you
Stron enough and I quit crying
Long enough now I'm strong enough
To know you gotta go

There's no more to say
So save your breath
And you walk away
No matter what I hear you say
I'm strong enough to know you gotta go

Well, you sound like you are doing pretty well, SHKB...and it sounds like you have one helluva solid therapist there, because it's not about them...it's all about us.  I just hope you are not sabotaging your feeling good by making yourself feel bad with that song. And anger is a part of the process as well...just as long as you don't get stuck in it.

Now HERE's a powerful song that'll keep you feeling good and strong :)

"I Will Survive"...Gloria Gaynor

At first I was afraid
I was petrified
Kept thinking I could never live
Without you by my side
But then I spent so many nights
Thinking how you did me wrong
And I grew strong
And I learned how to get along
And so you're back
From outer space
I just walked in to find you here
With that sad look upon your face
I should have changed that stupid lock
I should have made you leave your key
If I had known for just one second
You'd be back to bother me

Go on now go walk out the door
Just turn around now
'cause you're not welcome anymore
Weren't you the one who tried to hurt me with goodbye
Did you think I'd crumble
Did you think I'd lay down and die
Oh no, not I
I will survive
Oh as long as i know how to love
I know I will stay alive
I've got all my life to live
I've got all my love to give
And I'll survive
I will survive (hey-hey)

It took all the strength I had
Not to fall apart
Kept trying hard to mend
The pieces of my broken heart
And I spent oh so many nights
Just feeling sorry for myself
I used to cry
But now I hold my head up high
And you see me
Somebody new
I'm not that chained up little person
Still in love with you
And so you felt like dropping in
And just expect me to be free
And now I'm saving all my loving
For someone who's loving me

Go on now go walk out the door
Just turn around now
'cause you're not welcome anymore
Weren't you the one who tried to break me with goodbye
Did you think I'd crumble
Did you think I'd lay down and die
Oh no, not I
I will survive
Oh as long as i know how to love
I know I will stay alive
I've got all my life to live
I've got all my love to give
And I'll survive
I will survive

For some reason this comment box did not give me the option to paste until I typed something else in...but here it is now.

I am doing really well....better than I thought I would.  Finally getting mad, and I knew if I could ever get to "mad" I would start to heal. Therapy has been the key.  My therapist refuses to talk much about the jack@$$ and instead wants to talk about ME and why I ever ended up in this situation.  AMAZING insight into ME! I AM WORTH SAVING!! And so is every other person who in a weak moment made the wrong decision that altered their life.  BABY STEPS. DEEP BREATHS. I am not saying that I don't still get weak in the knees missing what I THOUGHT was a wonderful relationship, but I am beginning to believe that I DESERVE a FULL relationship. I hope eventually I will find that, but I want to find ME again first.

From Taylor Swift's 4th Studio Album - RED.

I ALMOST DO LYRICS:

I bet this time of night you're still up
I bet you're tired from a long, hard week
I bet you're sitting in your chair by the window, looking out at the city
And I bet sometimes you wonder about me

And I just want to tell you
It takes everything in me not to call you
And I wish I could run to you
And I hope you know that
Everytime I don't,
I almost do, I almost do

I bet you think I either moved on or hate you
'Cause each time you reach out there's no reply
I bet it never, ever occurred to you that I can't say hello to you
And risk another goodbye

And I just want to tell you
It takes everything in me not to call you
And I wish I could run to you
And I hope you know that
Everytime I don't,
I almost do, I almost do

We made quite a mess, babe
It's probably better off this way
And I confess, babe
That in my dreams you're touching my face
And asking me if I want to try again with you
And I almost do

And I just want to tell you
It takes everything in me not to call you
And I wish I could run to you
And I hope you know that
Everytime I don't,
I almost do, I almost do

I bet this time of night you're still up
I bet you're tired from a long, hard week
I bet you're sitting in your chair by the window, looking out at the city
And I hope sometimes you wonder about me

All you have to do is take the link from the seach bar...click it so it turns blue and then right click to copy and then past.  Or you can find the lyrics and past them in, too.

Tell us what's going on...how are you feeling?  Is listening to a love song making you feel blue because you might want to avoid them for a while.

So again, post in again and let us know what's up.

((hugs))
