I can't believe that you two knuckleheads pulled me in here..... : )
As I read this, I was thinking back on everything that I learned from the older, heavy hitters here.
I think, for me at least, it boils down to two things from two people...
Jack once asked me if I was willing to be defined by the worst thing that I have ever gone through, because posting can consume a person. That DB is great for living a detached life, yet not so great for attaching two lives together. And in order to survive , one had to separate the two things, and define who you really are before you can step back and give accurate advice, and live a DBing life.
Secondly, AmyC told me that after time, posting held her back just as much as it ever moved her forward, and how long did I want to sit on that fence...
I do agree with you Drew......
I was pushed into who I became after bomb day.....
Not asked.....pushed...... by some incredible people
And I wouldn't trade a minute of it.
G, stepping back isn't a bad thing, as long as you aren't hiding from yourself. (which you do tend to do at times)
For the record, I have personally witnessed the cuddling. There may not be coddling, but there is certainly some man cuddling going on between Mach and Eric. I may have even tried to be the meat in that sandwich, but they werenít having me.
I also realize my daughter says what she did because of the tough love I got from these people. That really close friend kind of give it to me straight love because they do love me!
Iím forever thankful for it, I try to give the same, but sometimes my line between trying to do good and actually doing harm gets blurred.
Um, UR I think you may have actually saved some people . A little more than help a little 😉
I just had to stop in and share something funny. We went out do dinner last night and then to one of our favorite bars ( they have 90ís bands. Itís a big place and it was packed. And who were we packed like sardines right next to? Hatchet guy! Remember him? I thank god he didnít recognize me or say anything if he did. Itís a small world when dating online, especially when you keep it local. And I live in a pretty densely populated area. I see the cheap anesthesiologist around once a week.
Iím the end, I ended up with prince after kissing all those frogs. We were a little tipsy last night and decided to buy tickets to a concert when we are going to one The next day. We are going all out. Sometimes we are convinced we are still in our 20ís.
