    Prayers for my sanity

    Ok, I know I've joked about being crazy on the boards here and there, but in all reality there is some truth to that. I've been going through some major personal issues, just seems like I've been bombarded with too much stuff and I just need the strength to get out of this mess. I've been trying to get back up on my feet and over it, but as soon as I see that light at the end of the tunnel, that light turns into a set of headlights from a semi truck and then I get knocked down and start all over again. So far, I've been knocked down several times, and I just dunno if I have the guts to try to get up again when it feels like there's yet another truck in the distance waiting for me to get near. I'd just like you guys to keep me in your thoughts and pray that I'd find the strength inside to deal with these issues head on and grow some nerves of steel to split the semi in half like superman, and then just waltz out of the tunnel and be on my merry way. And please, no pixie dust, I'm allergic

    Pygmy, i've been through 3 years of that type of situation in the past. Every time i got through one problem, a new one would know me right back down again and it feels never ending.
    Deal with one issue at a time, and dont forget to look back at everything you've dealt with, you might just be impressed with your own strength already.

    I totally agree. Hang tough, and when it gets too rough, just let go on the boards. We've all been through tough times and we know how much it means to have support; strangers for the most part that we are.

    If I sang Zippity Do Dah would it make you feel better? Or depending on the time of day, it may make you feel worse. LOL
    It's a Disney thing. If you understood, your only question would be "can I go?"

    Albino, I can relate, I call it the "cloud", trust me you will prevail, sometimes it just takes awhile. Hang in there


    It's kind of fun to do the impossible!

    Hi
    I think many of us have lived under a cloud at times. And I know what you mean - just when you think you are almost out from under it, something else comes along to push you back under. But, if you have struggled on once, you can do it again. And there is always someone here to listen to you.

    Something I read recently, apparently a teaching in Zen Buddhism...If something has happened that is causing you stress, but that you can not do anything about, then let go with both hands, and move on. We spend so much of our lives thinking about what we could or should have done. So leave it where it belongs, and try to see how tomorrow can be brighter.

    PM me if you need to talk.
    Tasha

    Ap, be of good cheer, we are here for you and you can do it. Just one day, one step at a time and think really short term, instead of long range. Focus on what is right in front of you and do not obsess over anything you have no control over. Think only positive thoughts of the outcome you want and do not give up. I will not bore all of us with the last three years, but minute by minute is sometimes the only way to get thru the days and days.
    P.U.S.H.-A mantra MOST will not understand.

    Disney rocks, Walt was a genius.

    Wow, some deep stuff in this thread going on here. I guess a big part of the problem is me worrying about it all, trying to do it all myself, when I should just "Let go" as you said. The monkey buddha hasn't really done much for me lately, so I'll see how this works out
