When I Need A Pick Me Up, by my friend Ryan King

That's me skirting past the issue. Because I've said it all before and nothing's changed in that regard.

I do wish everyone well, though. Celebrate whatever you can celebrate, whenever you can celebrate it. :)

Let me preface this by saying...I always say what I feel and it's coming from a good place, as well as a place of experience.

Enough of the "I hate myself", "I hate men", "I hate women" bullsh*t. You WILL NOT HEAL until you stop with the woe-is-me attitude.

Plenty of people have had bad people in their lives. At a certain point, you have to stop saying "boo-hoo, X did this, X did that, X made me feel worthless" and say "WHAT AM I GOING TO DO ABOUT IT?" If you continue to let people hurt you after the fact, you can only blame yourself.

People screw up, leave, die, abuse you. That's life. All you can do a) try to limit your contact with toxic people and b) control the way you respond to adversity.

Alan, take back your control and power and get on with it.

Trust me, people have done me wrong, abused me, and on and on. But that does not mean that I am going to continue to allow them to have power over me. It is my life to live, not theirs. That is why I owe it to myself to do whatever I can to work through my issues.

You owe it to yourself too.

Thank you S*. My next post replaces everything I was going to say here.
