You can't proceed through life miserable and expect to be full of happiness and love. And as you discovered (?) you can't swing that 180 in the other direction either and block out the rest of the world on your own quest.
Having this basic understanding between people is much talked about & desired but seems not completely understood/practiced. When things aren't measuring up we sometimes try to just swallow it and hope it get's better on it's own.
Every home should - by law - have a "We have a problem Houston" switch and blinking light that can be thrown by anyone at any time. If the light is on, we're required to sit down together in a non-confrontational way and just share what we see broken. Then put our heads together and figure out what options there might be to solve the dilemma.
If only it were that easy...............
Hey grounded X),
Lol the "button" spoken of in your reply, very much does exist in our family. The support for one another here is simply amazing. Not a one of us does not stop our lives for the other.
Where I feel the burden here is "idle minds". I find that I very much do just want to sit around thinking of bubby, where as there is nothing I would change about the thinking side its the placement my energy created by where my thoughts go. Sitting not the best idea for a person with metabolism of a humming bird.
And the strength to focus it constructively and apply these methods is my curiosity. Am I the only one who when thinks of the other, can dodge bullets becouse of the increase in heart rate? X)
