We need a new category on this site: Saving YOUR life

by Crazy Issues
(Hudson, Ma)

It's everyone's story. Women trying to save everyone else while drowning themselves. Let's have a new category here: what I learned to help myself. How I learned to let go. How I learned to create space within my self: a safe place, a place no one can take from me, how I learned to find time to tune into my needs while caring for others, and so on.


What's the use of crying and crying without some solutions. Find a way to thrive, not survive.

EDITORS NOTE - Great idea! We will develop a comment section on this subject over the holidays....

Guilt?
by: Anonymous

I've tried to make changes and don't see my mom as much as I used to. And I back talk her, which is a big deal to me, as I never did in the past. But, I still feel the guilt. How to rid the guilt? I would like some ideas. And the anger at my siblings for dumping it all in my lap.

Yes! Great Idea!
by: Anonymous

We need something uplifting here. All the good advice gets buried in the entries. It would be great to be able to read all the good advice in one section.
