so true. do what you love, love what you do.

Very true.

  • Demimonde Thraam

    Not always true. I used to take this sort of thing as gospel, but various heavy bombs were dropped on me after my ex left me for someone else: I lost my lover, my home and all self esteem. It is finally all over now but took years. I made up my mind again and again to be happier. But it couldn't end until I surrendered to the pain and let myself feel it. Being positive has its place but in some cases it can cause nervous breakdowns.

    I totally agree. I, too, had a devastating loss when our 17-year-old son died. It has been 18 years & I still have emotional tsunamis. I still have to manage pain & sadness. This quote spoke to me about all the times I had to be "in the world" with a broken spirit & had to work at being present & joyful with what I still had.

    Wow, Patricia, that is the kind of loss that makes my own traumas seem like nothing. I applaud you for having the strength to get through it and still deal with life. I ended up becoming a hermit and also went through menopause. I can't imagine myself having another relationship, but eight years after mine ended, I have begun to feel lonely yet asexual. So I stick to my cat like Velcro and do what I can to think of other people and not just myself. My condolences for the loss of your son.

    Thank you so much for your kind words. And I can totally relate to feeling the need to withdraw. The world just didn't feel quite safe anymore... My dogs & cat were, & still are, HUGE in my recovery. They provide perfect love & comfort. I send positive vibes to you. ❤️

SO very true!

A good laugh and a long sleep are the two best cures for anything.
