Today, I just laid in bed crying. It felt good releasing frustration and pain. :lol:

Yesterday, I got flowers and a necklace for myself. It felt good to pluck off the pedals, because some things come apart regardless of what happens to them.... that's okay with me.

Dear IMA,

Glad you treated yourself to flowers. What you do with them is your choice and in your control. Makes sense when you think about it. You are not alone. Here with you.

with care,
Harmony

IMA,
Here with you, too.
Thank you for telling about your recent experiences.
I like to buy myself flowers, too. :)
I'm my reality, not somebody else's low opinion.

IMA,
I'm enjoying your simple experiences. They remind me to find even the smallest thing in my day to appreciate.
Thank you

Today, I realized how warm and fuzzy I feel inside, towards my best guy friend. I don't what he sees inside of me, to say half of the things he does.... even after knowing everything about my past.

Either way I know we are slowly stretching our soul ties. #SoulMatesInTheMaking #Friends4Ever :mrgreen: <3 :)

Tonight, I am in pain. Pain from the memories and bullying I recieved as a child to my adult life. Why is that everyone except me can be happy with what they accomplished?

Motivation is hard but self worth is golden.

Tonight, it dawned on me that I won't be able to feel another person's embrace without a little cringing body response.

It applies to man, women, and even pets. :(

Even when I to cradle myself...I still feel worn and used up

IMA,
Maybe try and remember that your body is only repeating what it knows- the cringing- and it will repeat a new thing that it learns, too.
Keep embracing and cradling your self. Even if it cringes. Breathe and let go of the trapped energy of pain.
Eventually, your body's neurological response will change from "flight" to accept.
It is wrong and painful that your body had to learn that in the first place.
I hope you will feel more comfort a little at a time.

<3
