My Family Doesn't...
After reading a letter from my sister, I was reminded that my family doesn't read what I write on my site. So I was wondering how many other people have said "My family doesn't read my website." So I started typing the following words in Google. The instant suggestions say a lot....
Other EQI.org Topics:
After I read the letter from my older sister, I started to cry. I pictured us in the same room. I pictured myself crying alone, with her not knowing what to say or do. She is a trained counselor now, by the way. But I don't think she feels comfortable hugging someone who is crying. My sister is very "rational" and logical but as I have learned, you don't heal and emotional wound with logic. Simply put, my sister never hugged me when I was crying, at least not that I remember. My mother was not around much. She did hug me several times when I was crying as an adult, I do remember that. But I spent more time with my sister when I was young because my mother was studying or working at the university or in the kitchen or laundry room or garden etc.
I need to take a break now.... but I want to finish this sentence I started below...
I started to search "My family doesn't know what emotional support is". I decided to search first for just this part to see what I might find, if anything...
"My family doesn't know what emotional..."
So definitely no results for "My family doesn't know what emotional support is" - Yet I have absolutely no doubt that thousands of people would agree that their family also does not know what emotional support is. But we are so unaware of things until we are hit in the face with them.... as the saying goes.
So --- and now I pause consider how to say this....
that this website will help raise awareness in some small, or better, large way.
Love and peace to everyone.
(Thanks to Steph for reminding me of the importance of love and peace" - that is how she signs many of her emails. Or I think so at least. Anyhow, she gets credit.)
Oh yes... the xxxx was going to be "I sincerely hope..." but then I remembered my convo with P yesterday so I thought... is it my desire....or is it my own need....? I guess it is a need of mine that my life and all the learning and suffering and learning thru suffering is helping make things better for you and for the future generations.
|A thought for the day
You don't help someone by hurting them, any more than you warm them by freezing them.
And to punish is to intentionally hurt.
