I usually feel better if I can focus on other people.
I don't know how exactly I wound up in this group. I started out upset with and aging mother pushing my buttons as only a mother can. I was angry and upset. That always leads to an old friend of mine. So I drag out all the therapy tools I can remember and try to ge back on track. I am so trying to find the patience I need to deal with life in a positive manner. I am so often trapped by negative feelings. I can feel the waves of negativity rolling in and washing away my joy. "Don't let others steal your joy." they don't have to steal it, I give away. I guess if I were to set a goal it would be to protect myself a little more.
