Metaphysics: A SENSE OF CONNECTION
Posted on Tuesday, September 03 @ 09:28:31 UTC by Neomie
trichsters who responded to the surveys on this site reported difficulty getting
close to people, as opposed to an estimated 28% of the general population.
than that, those spoken to at length describe a general sense of disconnection.
They somehow feel different from other people … set aside, somewhat.
work in metaphysics and with people with a variety of disorders encourages
people to experience that we are all made of the same stuff, made by the
same process and come from the same Source.
explore a sense of connection. Imagine for a moment that you do feel connected
to everyone else in the world. Imagine that you feel connected by a Source
of Light which connects us all. Let your mind relax and breathe in to
your connection to that Light. Do you notice any blockages? If so, let
the heat of the Light burn out the blockages and let yourself feel really
now realise that group therapy is as powerful as Prozac in counteracting
depression. Feel yourself as part of the Whole. Feel yourself BECOMING
the Light burn out your previous sense of not belonging.
that you BELONG to a group of friendly, helpful and positive people on
the Internet. You BELONG to a group of Trichsters who care, support and
thrive with a condition which can at times cause depression.
feel our collective Light burning out that depression, burning out any
lack of connection within you, and giving you the strength to be yourself.
Imagine that we all walk in pace. Our hearts beat in time.
do not have to be defined by a disorder. We don't have to be defined or
have our self-esteem affected by events that happen in our lives or other
people's opinions of us, or even whether we have hair or eyelashes. We
are defined by the fact that we belong to this group of wonderful people
who believe in each other and, by definition, believe in ourselves.

I find myself to be the type of person who wants to be close to people BADLY. I want to have many friends and I want to have special connections with each of them. I have a tendancy to jump into things with my eyes closed and my heart open rather than "looking before I leap". I almost think that I do this in search of someone to love me. I tell more than I should too soon in most cases. And I tell you I have been rejected and hurt for doing so. When I tell one friend what someone else has done or said to me for "telling all" they usually say, "you should have felt them out better before tellling them your secrets". Ok am I a moron? Why on earth do I do this? I did this with my husband. Thank God it made him closer to me rather than making him run! I started tell him all about my past and he brought me closer. A boyfriend I had before him basically told me it was my own fault for not trying harder to tell someone or get away. (from a horrible molestation/rape/torture type situation). Ok see there. I am telling you all this vaguely...and some would say it is too much information.
My mother tells me to keep my mouth shut. My step father does not even know that I have spent 18 of my almost 24 years of life pulling out my hair. She never told him...she hid it and told me we weren't going to tell him.
I want to tell my mom that maybe I am smart enough to know that keeping everything to myself causes me more pain and frustration. I need to get it out. I will never get over my misery if I don't. She must not understand that what I do to myself is hell in itself. Here I have all these things that have happened to me...but I have had 18 years of personal misery with trich. I guess I should give up on her. She never understood me growing up...why should I expect her to understand me know.
I will have the life I want! I will continue to stay at home with my kids to teach them and help them grow into normal stable adults. I will never fault them for something they can't control. I will understand to the best of my ability anything that comes my way concerning them. I will be there for them when they need me. I will teach them that there feelings are real and to trust them. I will show them that life can be great. I will show them everything my parents never bothered to show me. I will! I will show equal attention, affection, and love for each of my kids. I will never favor one more than the other (esp. for a fault they may have). And God help any person who gets in my way. God help any person that ever tries to hurt one of my kids like I was hurt. History WILL NOT repeat itself.
And when it comes to that saying, "Once a victem always a victem".....WRONG!!! I refuse to be a victem again. I am stronger than the stronest preditor! Everything that was done to me to break me down has only made me stronger. I see that now.
HA, ha ,ha ,ha!!!!!!
I sound like I have lost my mind...but I haven't I have made my mind up! I will accomplish my goals!!!

An absolute ripper Neomie, especially the last paragraph which I give 10 stars out of 5. Could it be put on the opening page or something?
