Sunday AM...Hey All


Sunday morning and its good to be home....I'm on a weekend pass from treatment. I'm grateful to still have a wife and home to come back to...its amazing how other people love us and support us when we seem so intent on destroying them and ourselves. I'm still looking for a job ( lost my job of 20 years on my last run) This is completely overwhelming and scary....I'm trying to break the process down into small manageable steps....but its still nerve-wracking. Of course I immediately go to catastrophe mode and convince myself I'll never work again....be destitue...and on and on. I recognize that for what it is now...old tapes. I can't change the past...focusing on the next meeting I'm going to andb what I can do...through action...TODAY. Thanks.Rob

(((Rob)))

I tend to "awfulize", too, but experience has proven that everything works out okay. I may not see it at the time, but later on it's pretty clear.

Maybe losing the job was what you needed to put your focus on you. There are other jobs....there's only one you!

Hugs and prayers!

Amy

Yes it's amazing how those to whom we did the most damage are often the ones who love and support us the most. :ghug2

Carpe Diem my friend. You mentioned old tapes. How about making today's feeling one of your new tapes. Capture all that is good about the day and remember it. Just tell your brain this is one of the things that I want in my new life.

Best to you on your journey. You have my prayers for continued healing.

Peace from the Burg.
