This song fits best........

  1. for no uncertain reason......intelligent thought or otherwise...i thought i would post something here. a few of you have talked to me over and over and emailed me, since the why me post. i appreciated it immensly, and unfortunately just when the sun comes out, the clouds roll in, and when it rains it pours. it's pouring here..... whatever happens, happens....thanks........
    this just seems so fitting.....because so many people don't understand others situations, and never will be able too. myself included.


    sometimes i think i'm gonna drown
    cause everyone around's so hollow
    i'm alone
    sometimes i think i'm going down
    but no one makes a sound
    they follow
    and i'm alone
    yeah if i make it i'd be amazed
    just to find tomorrow
    one more day and i'd be amazed
    just to see it waiting
    and if i make it i'm still alone
    no more better days
    but if i could change
    then i'd really be amazed
    and when you know you can't relate
    to one more shiny face
    your heart breaks
    no one cares
    and when you know you can't go on
    cause everything is wrong
    your heart breaks
    but no one's there

    Rick, your posts have been so sad and discouraged and I don't know you that well. The pain in your posts is pretty obvious. What ever you are toting around needs to be shared with a real live person, perhaps someone you know and trust, perhaps a professional.

    Remember, feelings are temporary. They sometimes seem like "forever" and like they represent something that cannot be fixed. I do a imagery with kids about clouds being like feelings. [Imagine sitting on the beach, suddenly dark clouds roll in, it thunders and lightens loudly and you feel like you will be blown away. You huddle against the wind and it buffets you. Soon the storm lessens, and lessens, and then the clouds blow out and the sun comes out and shines. It is warm on your face. A gentle warm breeze blows and the sky is deep blue.] Feelings, even the worst of feelings are temporary, no matter how difficult or entangled things are, the storm will blow out and the sky will be blue again. If it has been many days since you've seen blue skies and you wonder if there are blue skies, don't just share it here. Share it with someone who can help you where you are.

    You're in a tough job. You have every reason to be overwhelmed, but things can be unraveled. A prof I know said that it is easy to manage unlimited resources but much more difficult to manage limited resources. If your job is getting you down, you know the reality of what that statement is about. You cannot solve this problem for once and for all, only abate it and keeping whacking away at it.

    Take care of yourself. Do what you need to do to care for yourself. Find that person to talk to that you can trust and let them help you see the problem more realistically.

    Serenity Prayer Time:
    Grant me the serenity to ACCEPT the things I cannot change; the COURAGE to change those I can; and WISDOM to know the difference.

    In my thoughts and prayers.
