“People are like stained-glass windows. They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in, their true beauty is revealed only if there is a light from within.”
-Elizabeth Kubler Ross
Good, I’m glad about all this gladness. Obviously, I’m happy that you’re happy that I’m happy that you’re happy etc. So if I don’t reply to you somewhere, like I’m busy not replying somewhere right now, it’s probably because of personal reasons, rather than interpersonal reasons, like my brain is too exhausted from trying to write words on a computer already.
Here’s something nice that someone just sent me randomly in my email:
Crystal Dreams can all come true,
We find the crystal just for you,
To hold and feel the pulse within,
To love and cherish it’s no sin.
Crystal Dreams of future bright
No dark grey days or dreary nights
When all good wishes will come true,
The crystal gems will give to you.
Crystal Dreams warm and light
Blissful dreams of pure delight,
Love and kindness from the heart
To all who walk a crystal path
Crystal Dreams, all nightmares gone,
Gone forever, everyone
Dreams and Dreams of sheer delight,
Pulses throbbing, heartbeat right
No restless days, or restless nights,
Calm forever, see the light.
Thank you so much for all your help. I don’t know how you find the time for it. I really appreciate it. It seems like you comment on almost every post I make! And its always very useful :)
I hope you’re well!
Thank you for writing that to me. I actually was falling sick and was sneezing and unaware of the world for a week or so, but I saw your nice message as I was falling into that, so thanks for writing it.
The reason it would be different between firefox and internet explorer is if the browsers save “cookies” then there would be one that lets you automatically log in to help.com. If you cleared all the cookies and then tried to log in, I don’t know what account would come up. I just sent you two invites when I invited you to something.
How it could be a metaphor: You switched browsers by moving to a different place last year to go to school, and suddenly you don’t see any of your friends but they are still connected to your other account. This is a random idea. :)
I’m sorry I’m not more helpful right now, but did you notice this is your other account? That it has the same picture and name but is a different account than you used for a long time? It might be because you logged in on a different computer or something. Anyway, here’s one reason you might not have friends, because they are all connected to one account, and if you log in on another there are no friends. I realize that’s just online, but online is sometimes a metaphor for offline.
um.. I’m okay, I guess. This is the first time I’m looked at a shout in many months. Really, I get notices and I open it in another tab and close the tab without looking. I’m sure many thousands of shouters decided I hated them. This is the only exception I’ve made in months and months.
But remember that http://www.mindhealing.ie/ ? It says something about sandtherapy, maybe this is what would solve all your problems:
that site wrote: Sandtherapy Available
Jungian sand therapy involves arranging toy figures in a sandtray. In this way, unconscious issues may be accessed indirectly in a similar way to dream interpretation. Sandtherapy is also useful for clients who have difficulty putting their problems into words. Cóilín uses a combination of talk therapy and sandtherapy for those interested in working this way.
Hi crystal :) unfortunately I cant really recommend any good sites rite now, I think you kind of need to just get in there and hit on as many search terms as you can relating to any kind of abuse and learn about it from different angles in your own way, I found this was my first step to recovery, the knowledge and understand of what was happening helped me to develop my coping skills. I also established, maintained and focused on growing a support network including professionals, friends and family and very importantly other victims of abuse. It probably took me a little over 12 months but I did start feeling a little more secure in the new friendships I have made, I found a new job, recently took up karate and swimming because I know fittness and diet are an important part of our mental health too… Looking back at my words I realise I started my process with mourning and healing, but then started to pay more and more attention to my own needs. Whats happened will affect me for the rest of my life, but I’m actually happier now than I remember even before my ex! It did take time though, a bit over 12 months, but I started feeling good :) I’d be happy to check out some sites in the next few days and see if maybe youd like them, but its a bit personal, some sites will appeal to you, others wont
Thank YOU for your kind offer. I’ll take you up on that. ;) I’m sure you are a good friend to have.
Who has life under control (completely)? I don’t think that’s something that can be taken for granted. I’ve seen some picture-perfect lives turned completely upside-down with just one unexpected incident thrown into the works. One never knows.
Life is fluid - people and places are always changing. It’s important to hold on to who you are when the road gets bumpy and I know you will do that. :)
You have made two posts now that I’ve seen about being worried of the kinds of guys you are going to date now that you and your boyfriend are breaking up. However, notice that he’s the last example of someone you’ve dated and he was a fairly nice guy, wasn’t he? Perhaps the pattern has changed =)
Hi, thanks for the note in my shoutbox. :) To answer your question which was “how’s things” — things is lovely. And things are everywhere. And things are really amazing. And I understand some things, and I’m sitting here trying to understand all the rest of the important things.
Connemara is amazing! :L You should totally try a hike out there, or if you’re big into adventure stuff, Killary Adventure Center is good craic ^^
I agree with Cork, and bloomin lllloooovvvveeee Galway! Used to go Gaeltacht there and just love it to bits! :L
I know… :/ Dublin is fairly… meh.. prob one of the last places I’d tell tourists in Ireland to go! Only good thing out here are the clubs really :L
NO WAY?!?!?! hahahaha, I’d heard one of em was a teacher! That’s so cool! :L
I love hiking and such so prob have a bit of an eye for stuff like that now :L
Ah yeah, Ireland is fantastic once you get off the main trails like, Dublin is fairly meh to me but lloooovve the likes of Glendalough and Connemara!
I’ve only been to Limerick the once, nice city despite the tough rep it sometimes gets :L And of course, my knowledge of it just grew after the Rubberbandits tour of it! :L
Some of them are indeed some sort of gel thing. Others look more like snowflakes or ice-crystals. And then there are all the pictures of a crystal with a positive word like “love” or “gratitude” and those mostly refer to a person named Mr. Emoto, who wrote books about how if you are nice to water then it will be healthy water like from healing springs, and he proves it “scientifically” by taking photographs of different parts of water (’water crystals’ after he has said words with positive or negative implications. :) It gets weird. The water that he said nice things to ends up having pretty water crystals, but if he says really ‘bad’ words, the pictures are similarly bad. :)
