I am so proud of you dear woman. Not only for saying what we sometimes need to hear but for seeing the need to state this.
I have to say, When DEM calls me on my BS, it is the best thing a sister can do. It keeps everything honest. It isn't easy to hear the truth, especially when lost in our own crap... so I really appreciate it when DEM tosses me a safety rope of truth! Sometimes even using my very own words of wisdom here and applying them to myself. God Bless Her.
I'm also proud of you for reaching out to hubby and your T, for doing the work, for knowing you need to step back for a breather and for not SHing!
OTW, I think you are a great mom... but remember, you are also a person...
I love all of you here and thank God for bringing you all into my life.
I'M REALLY GLAD YOU FOUND US. I'VE BEEN HERE SO LONG MY HAIR TURNED GREY! SERIOUSLY! I KNEW SOME OF THESE YOUNGSTERS WHEN THEY WERE STILL IN COLLEGE AND I MUST SAY THEY HAVE BLOSSOMED INTO BEAUTIFUL WOMEN!

im not going to aa anymore kate te. and i'm not working th esteps tho i were was with cac. im just not seeing the value in myself. people say i'm kind but everyone is. no biggie there. i don't know what the hell is wrong with me that i keep having these feeligns over and over. now i'm getting the urges again to sui and i had a couple of hours of not doing it. im just hangin it up for the night sorry to be so negative!
I'm sorry SB, I should have explained that better. I use the steps to help me with my mental illness. I recognize character defects, try to live a life of rigorous honesty, I turn my will & life over to the care of my higher power. And each day, I review my actions/words to make sure I haven't done anything I need to make amends for. I'm sorry, I thought you were doing the same (just that dbt reminded me so much of AA, I just merged the two).
hi kate te i was gonna check up on you tonight. glad to see your picture again! and you!
i recognize character defects but beat up so badly on myself with this that i either sh or attempt s. i'm usually more honest than i should be. i ask for Gods will be done, read devotionals usually every day and pray every day. i'm learning to pray for satan to leave me the hell alone! i never thought to think that dbt was similiar to the steps. interesting isn't it? nothing is ever really new just reinvented or comes from another culture!
thanks for bringing this to light about the steps. ihaven't read my big book in a long time and really don't feel like ever going back to aa. i'm sure it would help but i'm just tired of the phoneyness of so many or the holier than thouw ...i know principles before personalities!! just sayin. i don't find that in the groups that i go for in mental health. i've been going to a monday night group that is for dual diagnosis... addiciton mental illness... it works well for me.
We believe we are honest with ourselves right? We focus on all of our idiosycracies, flaws, defects... We acknowledge our failures. I'm learning to question all of this... This honesty I believed about myself having no value except for work and sex, a good little robot, programmed by everyone around me is no longer MY honesty!
My honesty is now about challenging these beliefs, thoughts, etc and in doing so, I have discovered I love my freckles, I love being short, I love being fullfigured, curvy, I'm starting to see my talents as gifts and not curses...
Even though I fought against it, had all of the crap that happend when doing the STEPPS program... I have to say, doing the work, worked. Now the work doesn't seem so much like work and I find myself utilizing the new skills that I have learned.
If you can there is a book called: You're already Amazing by Holley Gerth. It's about embracing who we are. Here is an example: "The word STRENGTH... S is for service, T is for time, R is for relationships, E is for energy, N is for natural, G is for glory, T is for trials and H is for heart. Dare to believe it, dare to receive it."
Oohhh... Kate_Te, I have a book for you too... it is called: The Heart of a Witch.. written about a small town in your area by Judith Hawkes.
I love the quote in the book about: "My crimes are of a different nature. Of them I already stand convicted in the only court of consequence: that of my own heart. Judge me as you will." It just seems so powerful of a quote.
Really, isn't this what we do? We are the judge, the jury, the executioner of ourselves and we always say "Guilty..." (Some reason the red queen in Alice in Wonderland is shouting...Off with her head). We never allow ourselves to give evidence that proves otherwise.
THANKS! I'M REALLY HAVING A HARD TIME BREATHING THIS MORNING WHICH ADDS TO MY CHAGRINE. I FEEL WHAT YA'LL FEEL WHEN YOU'RE OUT OF CONTROL. I'M SPINNING AND HAVE ACCESS TO A BUNCH O FPAIN PILLS. NO SHE SAYS YOU CAN'T DO THIS TO G AGAIN AND TO YOUR FAMILY HERE YOUR FAMILY THERE. OTHER PILLS??? MAYBE??? MAYBE NOT??? sh hmm maybe its the lesser of the evils ....im gonna pray that God gives me the words to talk to ka and get thru this day alive.
