  3. New profile pic:  I saw this little violet and felt a kinship.  Even from inhospitable rocky terrain, beautiful things can blossom.

      Love this Six! 💛

  4. On the same line as this can the blog posts and status updates be made not public. I feel like I would be more like.y to use both features if they were behind the member wall
  5. @LittleWolf I’m sorry for what brought you here but I am happy that you found us. You will find lots of supportive people through this site.
  6. Anxiety is really getting to me this week. I think I will feel better when we know who will be replacing our boss, but I don't know when that decision will be.

      Sitting with you. ❤️ I've been having bad anxiety as well. It's hard when there's an unknown or something that needs to be figured out. Best wishes to you!!

  7. @Phoenix23 You will find lots of kindness and understanding here. There are many here that share similar experiences to your own. I understand what it is like to feel like you don’t have the right to feel traumatized because others have had worse experiences. Slowly over the years I have begun to put together the pieces of my past and begin to understand how every little trauma has added up to the constellation of poor coping habits I have developed. Timing and duration of trauma also have an impact.
  8. I hear you about it feeling like it’s things on top of things. I definitely feel the same at times… here is a good place to untangle some of that. nothing about healing is linear even the order we tell our stories. Take your time look around. You will find many similar stories here.
  9. @LovelyLittleDisaster Welcome fellow teacher! I am a 4th grade teacher Originally from Ohio but now in the colder northern part of the Midwest. I'm sorry for what brought you here but welcome to our group.
  10. Yes, I definitely do this and it seems like a common challenge around here. I am trying to catch myself when I do things like that but it is a challenge to be sure. Having a therapist is beginning to help. I sometimes need someone unbiased to call me out on my BS.
  11. Still frustrating moments today but it was better than before... Hoping the rest of the week is smooth sailing

      Wishing you well. ❤️ I'm glad today was better than before...I hope that the rest of the week will be good for you!

    2. Capulet


      I'll second that!  Here's hoping.  Sitting with you! ❤️

  13. Trying hard to not assume that I am a failure because of a colleagues passive aggressive criticism.

      You are not! Don't let them get to you. Being passive aggressive is a faulty way that someone builds themselves up, by tearing others down...and are sneaky in how they do it. :hammer: 

      You are better than you know. :throb:  

    2. Six_times_seven


      Thanks Mary.  I like this person but man sometimes….. her advice always feels so backstabby and judgy. I’m getting better at not always hearing the criticism first but today it just kicked me in the butt.

    3. MeBeMary


      Ah. Even more difficult to deal with. It's sad, as well as maddening, when it's someone you are friendly with.

      No passive aggressiveness here. Just hugs and support, friend. :hug: 

  14. Hi, I’m sorry for what brought you here but welcome. You’ll find a lot of supportive people here help you on your healing journey.
  15. @sgs I just noticed that you also enjoy weight lifting! I love it. I find lifting to be a very therapeutic activity… I hope you do as well.
