Wishing you a happy, healthy and peaceful 2011!

It’s a New Year—another opportunity for a new beginning.

Of course, some of us have already embarked on new beginnings. I am always amazed, and gratified, to watch the journeys of recovery of so many Lovefraud readers.

People show up in tatters—betrayed, shocked and devastated. They gradually come to grips with what has happened. They seek help for extricating themselves from terrible situations, and the Lovefraud community offers advice, information and moral support. Eventually, feeling stronger and wiser, they turn around and help the most recent new arrivals, who have also shown up in tatters.

So here we are, in different stages of our healing journeys. Sometimes we slide back, but we are making forward progress.

I hope that in 2011 we all grow in strength and resolve. Let’s commit to:

  • Taking care of ourselves.
  • Heeding red flags when we see them.
  • Listening to our instincts.
  • Recognizing our own self-worth.
  • Walking in the direction that we want to go.

When we believe in ourselves, anything is possible. Happy New Year!

Hi One!!
As I tried to leave alot of baggage behind in 2010 now that I have an understanding of what happened to me. I had a very pleasant dream(nightmare) with the xspath in it. He was so pleasant and such my caring friend…. I freaked when i woke up. WTF was that? Now that I am trying to leave it behind and all the anger that goes with it…. I’m going to start haveing pleasant dreams of him?? I’d rather stay angry!!! But I’m exhaused being angry all the time… I’m just trying to do what is best for me now!

Wishing the same to everyone here. 🙂

I just wonder why it is that we traditionally wish people a “merry” Christmas and a “happy” New Year. It seems to me it should be the other way round. People generally are happy enough at Christmas (and merry too, to be sure), but it’s on New Year’s when they get REALLY merry! See them staggering and hiccuping all over the place… 😉

No ordinary,
Thank you so much for your encouragement!Im still getting shocking wind pains, and I presume this has something to do with all the trapped energies trying to get out!
I was literally double dup with pain, wheeling my trolley to the car today, as if someone had stabbed me in the right side!
This evening the pain has moved to my lower back below the kidney area.Ill be glad when its finally gone!
Thanks Oxy, especially for your encouraging words. You are the queen of metaphor, and paint such vivid and helpful word pictures.
