Hi everyone 😊
I'm very humbled to read the posts from the last few days.
CMF, Ross, Fiasco, Annie45, Mary, Paul, Croix, Stressless, The Abyss
I was tempted to fill the flowers for pearls thread with an individual thanks to each of you. 😊
It means a lot to me that even amongst your own worries that you've all taken the time to write to me here (or reach out on your own threads even while struggling TA and Stressless).
My heartfelt thanks to you all.
Mary... this is perfect. Exactly the words I need today. Thankyou.
we are so filled with desire, for happiness, for success, for wealth, for power, whatever it may be, that we are always imagining ourselves as we might be. So rarely do we come to know ourselves as we are and to accept our present position. But traditional wisdom tells us: know that you are and that you are as you are.
Tonight I'm going to go rest. My day has ended well. Hubby poured me a bath and made me a cup of tea and while I soaked told me he hasn't been in my shoes. He doesn't understand what it means to dread my workplace. He hasn't ever truly felt anxious. He said it's not right for him to ask me to suck it up because of the pay if it's making me feel worse.
I told him that is all I needed to know. I've decided to just wait for now and slowly look for something else. But I really really needed to hear that it was my choice. That I had a choice.
The relief is immense. And the love for my husband.
So I'm off to sleep now I'm calm again. I am thinking of you all though and hoping that tomorrow is an easier day for everyone 😊
