Sorry the email did not make it. I could not retrieve it either. I wanted to let you know that I appreciated your words and agree. Like Tom said, it's not about receiving love- it's about giving it. I have caused myself much grief contemplating life's unfairness and painful memories. When I am in that space, life appears to have no meaning. Instead, life's meaning is what I can contribute. Not in a prideful way, but it does put things in perspective. I'm sure there will be many more chanllenges to come. I'll continue to study and reach out for support spiritually. Wonderful individuals like those I am meeting here have truly helped. Thanks again.
Much love to you and yours,
we all have bad and good times. PMR is a learning lab, and in a learning environment pain and suffering caused by mistakes should be expected. I am aware, that talking about pain experienced by others is much easy, than to live through it. One can bring up all good theories, philosophy and smart examples, but they are not the same, as a personal experience.
Today I was given a good thought. There is no such a thing as a bad experience. Experience cannot be 'bad' or 'good'. What we make of it is important. Have we our lesson learned or not? The answer isn't coming from a logical analysis, but from the inner realisation, and what was puzzling you for a long time all over sudden becomes cristal clear, and this puzzle is solved.
Of course, life hurts, and most of us have our share of pain. Sometimes we have to almost physically pull ourselves by a bootstrap, to get up and move forward.
