Sorry Tiny, I'm not so good with technology - only just spotted you had replied! I have been seeing a therapist. She has been helping me to try and work things through. I've been very open about the little in me. It has been refreshing to actually be able to talk to someone who is non judgmental and who can help me figure things through. I guess I had a rather simplistic approach that my life's challenges were all in silos and could be ticked off one by one whereas in fact (and of course) they are like a patchwork over overlapping issues.
I've also read (several times now) Brian Burch's book, the Adult Baby Guide Book which really resonates with my journey towards self acceptance.
Funnily enough facing the AB issues head on has made the feelings about the abuse much less raw recently. All in all I'm in a much better place.
tiny, I just wanted to give you a nod of respect and appreciation...particular words elude me just yet, however my sentiment is strong...I wish that someday, you will see you, a bit more like I see you...you'd be quite pleased! I am! -Marka
Same here just hanging out and doing laundry it has been raining all day here and is expected to continue for a bit not thats a bad thing . On a more serious note hoping that a work glitch does not go atomic on :sweatdrop: me and is really a minor thing especially since I have been performing so well for them for nearly 4 years now.
Aside from that one event a pretty good day the laundry being done before sunday for a change will nice, have plenty of completely excusable downtime due to the rain to enjoy being the me that I want to be .
I happy your day is going well.
Don't feel pressured to be optimistic, I don't think any less of you for being grounded down and your feelings are totally valid. I'm happy my screenname makes you smile, I tend to name myself really overly cutesy things like this. I'm basically either always gigglemuffinz or fluffytutufairy. I just try to be myself. Being yourself, being true to yourself and your feelings is what is most important I think. So when you are sad, I want you to express that sadness because that sadness is also you. I just wish I could do more to help you smile then just have a cutesy name.
