Danchaser, I love reading your posts. They are very insightful. So I wanted to say, thank you for sharing your thoughts. I have been using today to focus on recovery. I have been asking the question you gave which was, What fills the void we have been afforded? Trying to figure out what it is I really want and setting goals that I might be able to start working on beginning tomorrow. Also, thinking about something else you said about not practicing the things that can make your life more balanced. I am determined to begin doing things to get my life moving in a better more healthy, conscious, productive direction. I guess you could say today is day of regrouping and goal setting. I realize things won’t change overnight. I need to be patient and keep a positive attitude. I liked what bije said about not chasing goals that are difficult to achieve. I think I need to not expect too much and keep in mind goals can change, depending on the circumstances. I don’t want to expect too much from myself and set myself up for failure. I do not want to give myself more reasons to feel bad. I need to keep in mind that the most important thing is to begin feeling good about myself.

Enough about me. Just wanted to say thank you. I hope you continue to share your thoughts. We are all in this together!
