fighting, weakening... exhausted and lonely


I've been deeply struggling for the past day or so, fighting to keep my head above water... I read something about an abuse that didn't trigger me (which is good, it shows progress) but did make me terribly terribly sad. And I keep trying to let it go... but I can't quite seem to do it. And Ben's been having allergy/asthma problems... so I feel like I shouldn't add any burden to him, and if I told him I know he'd most likely feel worse than I do. I'm lonely.

I'm really really lonely. And my spirit has fought so hard for the past two weeks... I'm exhausted.

I just want someone to hold me... someone stronger than me... and I want the freedom to weep, rather than dropping a few tears and stopping up the bottle again.

I haven't forgotten you, some of your comments and posts have touched me deeply and I will respond, but I just don't have the strength right now -- and I know that me not having gotten more than 5.5 hours of sleep per day for the last week hasn't helped.

strength, postive engergies, love

your soul is like this lily
beautiful and fragile
growing out of destruction



yet strong enough
to grow again
despite the destruction

the positive thoughts and energies
of your friends and fellow readers
surrounds you
in a warm enveloping womb of protective love

you will be ok again
one heartbeat
one breath
one step
at a time

hey, i've been through abuse too. i know it can mess up your life even afterwards. and i can't watch boy don't cry, because of the rape scene. so even when you think you're fine and it's gone. it can come back to bite you on your ass. But you know, it's worse to cover what you feel up. It will come out one way or another and it won't be pretty. I mean i was abused when i was a child and supressed it for years, till i started to have nightmares and wake up crying and screaming. When i started properly dealing, by understanding what they did was wrong, and it weren't my fault so i shouldn't feel like crap. And you're a strong person from surviving from it and getting on with your life. tell me ppl sweetie. they're feel better aswell. and believe me, so will you. just let it out.

anytime you want to talk, email me. i'll put my email addy up for ya. oki?

thank you sweetie, I really appreciate your thoughtfulness and honesty. I'll definitely keep your offer in mind. ;-)

it's good that you didn't respond as much to reading about abuse. Progress is always good, even if you don't feel very good at the moment. I'm going through a rough patch too. I really miss my dad, it's nearly a year since he died and all I wish I could do is hug him so I'd feel alright.

it's a cruel world.
belenen ══╣gentle╠══
I'm sorry to hear that you're going through a rough time... I hope you find some comfort soon. *hugs*

I'm sorry you feel this way! It's only a phase. You can't give up on your strenght now. It needs you! ;) And as for you not telling Ben, I understand! I know how you feel alone. I do have that feeling from time to time, but dont' forget that we are NEVER alone. There's always someone out there that we can talk too! We just can't forgot about those people. Lucky for you, in here, you really are never alone. ;) you've got great friends and all.

Hope you have a good nice day today! ;)
belenen ══╣gentle╠══
Thank you! and thank you for saying that my strength needs me, that's an interesting way of putting it and for some reason it gave me comfort. Thank you. ;-)

If there's one thing I do best...it's listen. I know we don't know each other well, but you're always welcome to vent, cry, and scream at me. Hang in there.
belenen ══╣comfort╠══

I haven't been abused but I get terribly sadden and enraged when I read about such an awful thing happening so I can only imagine how it must feel for someone who went through such an ordeal, but the fact that reading about it didn't trigger you shows amazing progress =)

I hope you get some shut eye soon and this feeling of loneliness rapidly fades away and remains a distant memory.

*hugs*

*hugs back* Thank you for this sweet comment. And thank you for affirming my progress, it's good to hear someone other than myself take note of it, it makes it seem more real. ;-)

I love you Bel! I'm sorry that you're going through this sadness spell. It's par for getting better, but it's the part that really hurts. I love you. please email me your phone number soon and I'll call you.
belenen ══╣loving╠══
I sent my phone # to your hotmail addy. I love you too, my friend! I'm thinking of you.

Hey not reacting to seeing abuse is great progress. Remember that and let it encourage you to keep on keeping on.

I was abused when I was a child and am still dealing with it. Though I have come a long way, I know that I am not where I need to be. But I am indeed better than before. That small step you made by not reacting is saying to me that you are also. Keep on keeping on, dear.
belenen ══╣gentle╠══
Thank you for validating my progress... it helps to have someone besides me say it, it makes it seem more real.

And thank you for encouraging me to keep going. ♥
