However long it takes you to get over them is how long you should avoid contact with them. Focus on your health and sanity and not what other people say or want.
I remember one time when we had been shopping and he went into the parking lot. He walked around for a while looking for our blue station wagon. My husband was frantic and almost to the point of calling the police and reporting it stolen. Strange thing was we had old that car and were driving a Dodge mini van at that point and had been for almost two years.
Is your helping encouraging? All of your “helping” should encourage your adult child to do better and become more independent. It shouldn’t be so controlling that it takes away the incentive for your adult child to try or that it sends the message that he/she is incapable of handling his/her own life. Helping someone to help themselves is the goal. All of us learn best when we are in control of our choices and directly experience the consequences of them.
When was the last time you apologized to someone you hated? At this point in time, Sarah hates Jack because her brain has fed her lies and twisted her perception about the way their life has been. She doesn’t love him right now and may take it out on him in a number of ways- a revenge affair for his “infidelity”, physical and verbal abuse, or whatever her mind may cook up.
And we often have to come back to it. Why should we otherwise be swayed to believe about ourselves some divergent sense of falsehood; this often knocking the creative breath out of us as if we were winded, stammering for inspiration whilst clamouring on canvas.
Second, I learned that i do love my mother. depression and crazy demands that she always be the center of attention. That is part of the illness. She has all the potential to be normal when she takes her medication, and then she can be very sweet and loving.
I hate his suburban chick reality show on Tuesday’s. I might as well be watching a soap opera. Yuk! I love all his other shows as he tells it as it is. I love that he actually cares about helping people. What ever happened to Ted Williams. The homeless man with the golden voice. Back on the streets doing drugs again? Dummy backed out of rehab.
Some religions claim that depression is a sin or somehow the fault of the depressed. Worry is considered a sin in the Protestant Christian denomination, because it is considered to be proof that the depressed person lacks faith in God. Even New Age authors such as Louise Hay, best known for “You Can Heal Your Life” (1984), claims that each person is entirely to blame for any illness, including depression.
