"Do not tell everyone your story. You will only end up feeling more rejected. People cannot give you what you long for in your heart. The more you expect from people's response to your experience of abandonment, the more you will feel exposed to ridicule." ~Henri J. M. Nouwen Source: Purple Buddha project
I just don't feel you understand me enough and I can't get the rage out of me. How I wish you could ease my pain as much as I want to ease yours. I simply feel abandoned and unwanted and misunderstood here and it sucks. I hope you know this.. -Dru
It isn't a willingness to abandon them during inclimate weather for a tryst that shouldn't be occurring. It isn't being jealous of them or the time they spend with the other parent and it isn't holding the children hostage to get what you want out of the other parent. They are living, breathing, feeling human beings who once exposed to trauma will be affected for the rest of their lives. 2 words for selfish, narcissistic, manipulative parents: GROW UP.
I've wondered this my whole life, always felt not worth the fight..so I realized I can't let go of myself. I'm all that I have. So I have to be good to myself and make myself feel good. Make myself happy, and not care if anyone else is going to make it happen. Because I'll be waiting forever. I'm easily left alone, but never lonely. I'm good on my own. :) and I know that God cares. If I didn't know that I probably would go insane. And my fiance cares about me. :)
