I know boundaries are an overused term, but for empathetic people, they are a life or death deal. Love Yourself. Create boundaries that work for you. Smeone has to show us, like training wheels. In early July my husband was fine. Working out, working, loving life. In mid July he was told that without treatment for 9 brain tumors he would be gone in months or less. He made it just over 4 months, and took his last breath 4 weeks ago. He lived more in those 4 months than many do in a lifetime, and his caringbridge story has changed lives.
My sons and I are forever changed by his journey. Our journey. Live each day to the fullest. Treat people well. Enjoy the love and beauty all around. Keep it simple. I am a wife and mother of 2 gorgeous sons. I got married immediately after graduation from the law school and 4 years after I feel stuck and lost about my career.
This year in particular is been a very trying one. However, My family and friends are in good health and perfect mind. All I can say.. I am spending Christmas alone this year. I had a chance to go to L. But, I find with all the sad layers that I built around myself that are now melting away I thank you for part of that journey with your course. Thanks to all your advices and stories, I love to read them and I have bought the book and still listening to it. I am going thrue a divorce that I never expected, imagined from a cheating husband who I believed was perfect.
I realise now it was my fault I had so many expectations on him. I am also grateful that I am no longer being lied to or cheated on. I love your phrase from the book. This is awesome. My brother was homeless for 25 years. His mental illness detached him from reality and family. Our dad was diagnosed with brain and lung cancer in January and I sent out messages to everyone I knew. I drove over the next morning, eulogy in hand, and found him, and just wept. Since then he has been hospitalized and released, medicated, found housing, celebrated his 50th birthday, traveled out of the country to Montreal for the the first time…and just got a job!
You can never give up on people. Marc and Angel I am thankful for your precious words of wisdom, comfort and deep empathy. Your words carry ancient wisdom that is truly soul healing and soul wounds are deeper than spirit wounds. Deep indeed, to the essence of self. Imagine a child, raised in middle class family, with four siblings. Father belittled his only daughter, calling her a boy that no one would love. A moron, ugly, disgusting.

Her four brothers were treated the same. Worked night shift. Religion underpinned family life. And hypocrisy.

The father left. Siblings had nothing to keep them together. No family. No love. Only rejection. One sibling dead from alcohol abuse. Two siblings so shameful cannot be written. Two survivors. Outwardly successful. No contact. Scarred, emotionally wounded. Married to a man just like my father and helpless to leave. My story in a nutshell. Your words sooth and strengthen a broken spirit. My wife and soulmate of 13 years endured 4 months in a hospital, two medically induced comas, the amputation of both her hands and feet.
At three and an half months, she was working as hard as she could to prepare for the use of her prosthetic devices. I knew her life would never be the same. She did not survive the third coma.. Although left with a scar on my soul, I know there is peace and a meaning to the loss of her life within.
A Reason for Hard Times
It has now only been a month and a half since her passing, but her strength thru it all, has been passed to me. She has given me a new life to live.. Thank you for all your emails during the year. Best wishes.
As for all the life stories shared…I am humbled beyond words! Such wonderful words, though many painful, lend us hope and foster faith. My biological mother, who was separated from her husband, got pregnant. My adoptive parents, while loving, divorced one another twice.
I was raised by a single parent from the time I was seven years old. Sexually molested by a baby sitter when I was about six years of age. Grew up poor and with a prolonged identity crisis. As such, self-esteem was never strong. I met my biological mother at 19 years of age. She led me to believe a certain gentleman was my father. Turns out, through DNA testing, he was not my biological father. She took his identity to the grave. However, my biggest struggle in my life is that I lost one of my dearest friends eight years ago. Monty was a self-made man who joined the Air Force right out of high school and retired from the Air Force with a PhD and as a commissioned officer.
He was the life of the party, smart, handsome, and totally loved his friends and family. However, no one saw his pain and one tragic day, he took his life. I miss my good friend and think of him often. Grief has been a complete nightmare and so many tears have fallen from the eyes of this 58 year old here. I feel cheated as I had looked forward to growing old with Monty.
Hell, you just kind of expect some people to always be there. The point of sharing this is to encourage everyone to love your friends and family, above all else in life…and enjoy the simple things that life has to offer…and treasure today for tomorrow is promised to no one. And lastly, LOVE deeply, madly, and passionately, for in the end…life is truly about the relationships we build…little else really matters.
In closing, Merry Christmas to all who read this and to my dear friend Monty…wherever you may be…fly high and free eternally!
I was listening to an interview on the radio one day. The man talking had lost his 13 year old son to cancer. He said that we can not control the bad things that happen to us. All we can control is how we react to them. My sister lost both of her children. One was in a car accident at 15 and has been totally disabled ever since. All she can do is look at you. She is now She has been in a nursing home all these years.
The other daughter died suddenly at 30 with a brain tumor. My sister and her husband have both been diagnosed with cancer and are still living. My sister is bipolar. Both she and her husband have had the medical system botch up their surgeries resulting in multiple other surgeries to try and rectify the damage. This family continues to try to make the best of their lives and are positive, loving people.
They are my heroes…I pray for them everyday and I know that my prayers are listened to and answered. No matter how sad we all are,love can create miracles!!! We are, with Gods help, co-creators of our own reality. I wish everyone out there a Merry Christmas and a vibrant healthy and happy New Year! I have been through more in my life than most. I am resilient.
I survived sexual, physical, and emotional abuse. I survived watching my mother be physically abused most of my life. However, this September, I lost one of the most important people in my life, my 26 year old niece. She was one of my best friends. We did everything together. And then, last month, my grandpa. Christmas is coming and it is the first one I will spend away from my kids. Surviving this will not be easy. This is my work alone. However, reading your blog lets me know how much I am supported!
Gonna write this one one my bathroom mirror. Thank you again. As I sit here ready this email I can relate to some. This holiday I lost my younger brother to a heart attack, my mom has stage 4 pancreatic cancer and this Christmas Eve would be a year since my best friend took her own life. In February , in only three weeks, my life changed. I had fallen off my flat bed semi and had to have career-ending rotator -cuff surgery. After surgery, I got a call from my oldest sister that my favorite sister had passed from a heart-attack..
A week later, I found out my wife had been unfaithful to me. A week after that, my mother passed. If I can get through this, I can get through anything. Brown has made a habit of appearing to disclose his magical methods while leaving the stupor of his audience intact, and I feel the same bafflement now. It is as if he took all his feelings about the breakup and — puff! Or, at least, brought them under control, which perhaps amounts to the same. Just a different kind of magic. Given that the hallmark of his stage and TV work is to extend his control and obfuscate its limits by blending magic with hypnosis and psychological manipulation, it is tempting to think that, in Happy, Brown is simply turning these powers on himself, making himself the object of his own suggestion.
Certainly, Happy is a new direction. The bibliography runs to three pages. AC Grayling and Alain de Botton have provided enthusiastic quotes for the jacket. After all, his next show is called No Tricks , and really does contain no tricks, just Brown talking about happiness. He has no specific aims for his private life, either.
And it was. Everything felt fine and in the right place. But magic is just one element of the past for which Brown has expressed distaste. Tricks of the Mind, his book, begins with a vitriolic glance back at his Christian days — as a child growing up in Purley, south London, he attended Bible classes, and began to question his faith only during his university years, when an interest in magic and hypnosis took hold. Maybe it will withstand his habit of retrospective loathing. With his thin, calm voice and his scrupulous politeness, I am struggling to picture Brown overwhelmed by happiness.
Is his tranquillity ever scuppered by uncontrollable happiness? In fact, when I ask what makes him happy, his partner is not the first reply. It can either cut you open to the core and leave you in ungodly pain or it can free your soul and lift a tremendous weight off you shoulders. Right after a break-up.
6 Helpful Ways To Overcome Heartbreak | HuffPost Life
Because you were my boy, you were my only boy forever. They come to their senses and get selfish again. But as time goes, others do do, and often do do, much much better. You can keep your love, I will keep my respect. How in the world am I going to be able to reject that? The world is so unfair.
The girl who could actually do it should win an award for idiot of the century. Love , in most cases, betrays the one feeling it. No one is that amazing, certainly not the one who would pass you up. On purpose. Made me suffer. Jekyll and Mr. At this point, we can choose to let go and endure the intense pain of leaving behind the familiar to make way for a new chapter in our life. Or we can stay and suffer a low-grade pain that slowly eats away at our heart and soul, like an emotional cancer.
Until we wake up, one day and realize, we are buried so deep in the dysfunction of the relationship that we scarcely remember who we were and what we wanted and needed to be. Married to someone who is perpetually distracted and somewhat wistful, as though a marvelous party is going on in the next room, which but for me he could be attending? The hard part comes when you want out. No, just bitter, the taste of your tongue. Ambivalence is my new best friend. There is in such situations usually a moment of passion during which the unthinkable is said; this is followed by a sense of euphoria at finally being liberated; the world seems fresh as if seen for the first time then comes the inevitable period of doubt, the desperate and doomed backpedaling of regret; and only later, once emotions have receded, is one able to view with equanimity the journey through which one has passed.
It somehow managed to work, but it would never, ever feel the same. Channel your sorrow to become worthy of love. The world will be yours. I deserve better than that; I am better than that.
Life is in you today, and you make your tomorrow. Ron Hubbard. That and trailing off your interaction after the breakup. Accept things and move on. You have to be able to laugh at our pain or we never move on. Why do you cling to pain? There is nothing you can do about the wrongs of yesterday. It is not yours to judge. Why hold on to the very thing which keeps you from hope and love?
Yes, hearts can break. Break-ups are never easy. You may feel sad and hopeless today, but have faith that all this heartache will soon pass.

Thank You so much for these Quotes! When moving my entire life from CA to CO for what I thought was true love, I never expected to find more peace locked away in an unlit bathroom, overwhelmed with tears and heartache, than I would being in the same room with said ex-boyfriend.
I used to love going on nature walks, just to breathe fresh air, find my chi after being indoors for the majority of my short life here… and since being with him, I barely leave the house and am actually afraid to even inquire about possibly venturing behind these introverted walls because I already know the answer him. His rejection to do any simple thing I want such as nature walks are always explained away with how he only leaves his home when he feels or looks good.
