I have to remind myself daily to keep workin' thru whatever comes my way. I came to this site a few months ago when i knew that i couldn't do certain things by myself. I'm so used to tryin' to work it out before reaching out for help. I'm here for my family everyday, and i get so caught up in their stuff that i don't take care of mine. I came to this site hoping i could sort out the stuff i'm dealing with, so i can be at my best. I don't really like to dwell on the past, but i know alot of the things i deal with is related to it. I need to work thru this, but i've heard you shouldn't dwell on the past. I'm not doing that, i'm just tryin' to work it out...so how do you that? How do you work thru it without going there? I've seen alot of people on this site that have similar situations, and they have worked it out or they're still making progress. I've only been here a couple of months, so i hope to continue to press in, and press on as i continue to work thru this.
I got some good advice from someone (theeagle) when i first came on here. He told me to take it slowly when it comes to meeting people on here. He said that the quality relationships would develop with time. That's true with any relationship...it takes time to really get to know someone. This brings me to a question that i have about putting your business out here. I have to admit that i'm totally new to this...i've never liked chat rooms, so i don't go there. This is the first forum that i've really been on. It took something that really interested me to want to get involved. I know there are people that have been here a long time.
I want to think that this place is different and people really do care...they don't discuss or put people down in private conversations. Then i have to ask myself why i'm even concerned about it...cause for the most part there are some awesome people on here. I am taking my time, and tryin' not to get my feelings hurt in the process. I know that everyone is basically here for the same reasons...to heal or to work thru something. I know this is MedHelp and not ClubMed...it's an inclusive place, not exclusive...depending on who you're dealing with. Sorry if i've offended anyone, but this is just an observation. I had to get this out, for my own peace of mind cause i'm gonna continue on here, even if i do just end up talkin' to myself. Well, i guess this will either isolate me on here, or it will help someone. I'm not here just for me, i am here to help too...if i can. I would like the chance to do both.
