i like ekatie's meditation/yoga suggestion. it sounds like you are searching externally for something that you already have internally.

Thank you all for the wonderful advice. i'm checking into yoga now. I see a counselor every two weeks. I sometimes feel like the answer are already in fron of me, i just don't see them. I feel confused and lost most of the time.

I haven't gotten into a yoga class. But today before work, I'm also going to the library to find one on DVD, also I think I'm gonna check to see if they have one on Belly Dancing. I would soo love to know how to do Belly Dancing.

I sometimes think that the hesitation stems from becoming a parent.

Listening to you make things seem ok to be real. I for the most part am Honest with others. They usually know when Iget my boys then time is spent with them. Mu counselor and I talk about not knowing who I really am all the time. I just don't seem to be finding me. I mean she is great and I love her. She gives me great advice.


Like she wants to sign up for a yoga clas, get out there. It's my time now. But I seem to always hold myself back. Then have to find excuses later. I know its sad,very sad on my part. Because I'm not helping myself. See I always feel like I have to put others before me, Or that i'm afraid of hurting someone. I wish I was more open, stand my ground and not back away. But even that I can't seem to do. I can only when really pissed off then I scream and can say what is needed. But I don't want to have to scream at others.


Yes about the ice road trucker, The girl is Great. But yes she doesn't have kids. My kids live with their father. I get my boys on the weekend, every other

I agree with the posters who suggested yoga and meditation. It really worked for me when I was going through a mess. Gwennie, see you told the truth on this board, and got lots of support. Maybe try doing this more often in your life - tell the truth about yourself instead of trying to mold to what you think the others will approve of.
