  1. I like the flow chart but… I have to say this doesn’t cover all unhappiness ie: sudden shocks we would never choose for ourselves in a million years such as betrayal or terminal illness diagnosis. That said, I get the concept of making healthier choices when and as we can. Still, many are in such overwhelming circumstances not of their own choosing that reading some of these things can be frustrating. It’s not as simple as that. Nothing ever is. As one who has come through much betrayal for two years nonstop, 52 years of falsehoods/lies from husband and best friend… actually still working through it… and most thankful I don’t have a terminal illness… this would have been more salt in my wound if I read it a few months ago, left me feeling as though the betrayals and shocking abuses of my love and trust were all my own fault. All for empowerment of self… when and as we can… I don’t know if this will even make sense to you but I just had to say it.

    1. Thank you for the very honest feedback. I really appreciate your comments. If you don’t mind sharing, i would really like to know what might have changed for you in the last few months that has helped you to get through the betrayals you mentioned in your post? It seems as though you have experienced a great deal and have now begun to heal to some extent. If you are interested in exploring this topic further please do not hesitate to contact me.

      1. Gee. I don’t know if anything changed so much as I just keep putting one foot ahead of the other. I will try to find the story, rather the edge of the story, and post the link here that you might grasp a fraction of the emotional rape, mental violation and physical abuse I endured. Am still enduring (not physical but the rest is ongoing until court is over … tiresome). Back in a bit if I can find something, I just can’t say it all again.

      2. I think its important to recognize that no matter the circumstances that come about in our lives, those moments that you mentioned that our outside of our control, we still ultimately hold the power when it comes to the way in which we choose to respond to them. You said it very well in your earlier comment when you said you just decided to put one foot in front of the other. In the end i think that is the best choice a person can make after experiencing a challenge or trauma. Life will have a great number of challenges for us but what matters most is how we respond to these challenges. I am sure you can agree that putting one foot in front of the other was no easy task but it was a decision that came with time. You and your life were more important that the events that took place and to some extent you are now free to move on and help others who might be experiencing similar difficulties. People have read your story and appreciate that someone like yourself can share their experience in order to help others. Thank you again for being so open to sharing.

  2. This is actually not the story in entirety either. Many more events and resulting losses/grief/change that have me so weary, I long to sleep and never awaken. Thank you for your invitation to share. It’s all I have left: breathing and writing. Until I am through this ordeal.
