I took a b-day gift card to sis last night, it was nice to visit a bit with her and the teen kids.  It was nice to be out with the Christmas lights at he outdoor mall with puppy. I was very sad I ran into T at a meeting last night and just felt rejected because his showing interest has taken a lower level.  I have that love addition thing and him being my target and also someone I'd like to get to know who has shown interest in me has put a lot of things into perpective.  I need to work on myself before I can be healthy for someone else, and at the sime time, I don't NEED to be perfect to be loveable.  I just wanted to cry because the connection was not how I wanted that, isn't that life? I guess going to the convention and it help me to start breaking out of withdrawal has gotten me in touch with my loneliness needs and wanting them gone NOW - the addict in me.  Healthier to be reaching out I guess, and I've been doing that a bit more since the convention, which started out in isolation.  I'd like to go to church with T, and J would go, but I'm not sure I'm ready or that my expectations are in check.  One day at a time.  When I have a plan for today it's better.  I am too withdrawn in general. I went to the gym last night finally and did jacuzzi and sauna, and did yoga 2 nights in a row.  Good for me.

yes! good for you! the 2 days in a row thing is significant to me...often I\'ll have one day where I will do yoga/whatever positive thing, then the next day I\'ll have this, \"oh, I just did that yesterday...I don\'t deserve it again already, do I?\" So I think it\'s really awesome to do it 2 days in a row. and good job with your love addiction realizations...right in line with you there, too. \"One day at a time\" :)
