hi, lovely,

i noticed your post was short, but not exactly sweet. i felt sad myself to see that you were down. would you like to share what has caused you to feel empty? can you recognize if it was anything specific? i hope those negative feelings you are experiencing turn around real soon.

hi lovely
i'm glad tho that at least you could write something's good to know that you're having these feelings. As Marsha Linehan would say just sit with it... and then I add Sweetie.... nothing lasts forever... and remember as well they can't take your mind! it only happened to the body not the mind only if it manifests inside push it don't need to relive it.

I know anniversaries are so hard.... take peace and your power back because you survived it! and now you're living your life

A small response to a small but powerful post:
Hugs, as many as you want.

LLT, I'm sorry you are feeling so bad. I struggle with feeling the same way pretty often. I know that the Bible says that God's love is the only thing that can fill our emptiness. He loved you so much that he sent his only Son to die for you. You are perfect in His eyes. I know these things and yet like you I struggle day after day. I'm going to bed but I will pray God's love will fill and comfort us both. (((Hugs my friend))))
