i am letting u know that i am leaving aac. i have enjoyed this site tremendously. it has helped me to grow and learn. As some of u know, i have broken the anonymity rule on aac I have asked the sc to remove me from this site. i find that i can no longer post on here and practice self growth with out being affected by my own rule breaking actions. i would encourage u to not break the anonymity rule as it will bring great conflict to u as it has inevitably done to me. so this is the price i am paying now. i am going to miss each and everyone of u. i hope u all find the peace and happiness that we are all searching for. i myself, know that i have put far too much importance on this site and not enough on real life. so now i am going to be brave and swim off and engage in the real world.

Here is a final farwell post from me.

You know u are getting better , when u can make a decision that hurts like all get out but is better for u in the long run. This is called growing up for me. Nobody ever said doing what is best and right isn't going to hurt. Sometimes u have to hurt yourself in order to help yourself, to really grow and move beyond what is comfortable. being comfortable soemtimes means being stagnant and stuck. i am setting myself free. FREE at last. 🙂
love always, guppy.

Guppy~ I never chatted with you but have seen you swimming around AAC: ). Just want to make a comment on your final post.

If that is not the truth that you know you’re getting better when u can make a decision (just making a decision has been growth in itself for me) when you know that decision is going to hurt-real bad you still choose to go through with it because you know in the long run its what is truly best for you. Yes, I agree in many ways it is called growing up.

And exactly, in order to really grow-to really move beyond what is comfortable as well as familiar sometimes ya got to do what ya got to do- and it is not always pleasant or pretty.

Blessings on your walk from here guppy…thank you for such an insightful post. Know that there is someone else out there that is going through the same growth stage (letting go of what’s comfortable-feeling the pain) and I believe the real growth, the real growing up will be shown when we stick to our painful decision, when we feel the pain-the fall out of it, but yet continue to move forward…

It was nice to know you. I shared some hillarious moments with you and will never forget them.

Something for you

26 Steps to Self Empowerment

Affirmations for any time you need to enpower yourselves!!!

v v v

A is for Accepting yourself just the way you are. So look in the mirror at your eyes and say "I accept the way I am."

B is for Believing in yourself. Say "I believe in you" three times as you point to yourself.

C is for the three C’s: Caring, Comforting & Caressing yourself. So think of ways you can implement the three C’s in your life.

D is for Deciding for yourself. Think about a present area in your life that you are struggling with and you make a decision about it.

E is for Experience - get out of the co-dependent rut and experience something new. Make a commitment to yourself to experience something different each week: different food, a different route home from work, etc.

F is for Fun. Co-dependents are too serious. Allow yourself to think of fun things to do. Possibly things you used to do that you let go to seed. Learn to water them again.

G is for your Growth. Grow out of the co-dependent habit.

H is for Happiness, which, after all, is the true purpose of life.

I is for I! I am the most important person to me, so repeat this every day 3 times to yourself.

J is for Joy. Think of the joy that is in your life, or maybe the lack of joy. Make a deal with yourself to allow more joy to enter your life.

K is for Kicking old habits. Old habits such as worry, procrastination, perfectionism, etc. If you are serious about this, write down these words, tear them up and put them in the garbage where they belong.

L is for Love. The first person to love is you. Remember you cannot truly love someone else until you love yourself first. You can’t give anything to anybody unless you have it first to give.

M is for Moments. For you to take those moments for you. So take a moment to get off of your daily treadmill and spend a moment or two with yourself. Feel yourself being energized.

N is for NO! Contrary to that popular commercial, say NO! No to doing things that you don’t want to do. Take a moment to think about how you have recently said YES when you had wanted to say NO. Say NO a few times for practice - it can feel invigorating, making you feel more alive.

O is for Openness. Openness to different life encounters. Open yourself up to breathe deeper.

P is for Power. Close your eyes and connect with your power. Feel your power inside of you.

Q is for Quest. Connect with your inner purpose. Ask yourself "What is my life quest?"

R is for Rest. Rest yourself. Take a rest from any compulsive habits that you may have.

S is for Serenity. Say the serenity prayer each day before you start your day.

T is for Timelessness. Take time to be timeless. You have time for many other things, so take time for timelessness.

U is for YOU. So say "U is for You!" You can use ‘U is for You’ as a new mantra.

V is for Victory. Your victory over co-dependency. Make the V-sign to yourself to acknowledge your victory.

W is for Wholeness, Wealth and Wisdom. "I am Healthy, Wealthy and Wise!"

X is for Extra. Give yourself something extra this week or next week. You probably have gone out of your way to give other people extra, so give yourself extra ASAP.

Y is for YES! Yes, I can! Yes, I will! Yes, I am! YESSSSS!!!!

Z is for Zero. If you’ve come this far, you have nothing left holding you prisoner to co-dependency - you’re free to go.

ah, guppy I'm gonna miss ya. You're a riot.

I to get wrapped up in this site sometimes and life goes by without me. It's definitely something to be aware of and watch out for. I broke the anonymity rule once to and that was a BAD idea.

Hopefully you can come back at a later time.

You're gonna be missed.

I will try to be in contact more often with all of you. Buy time.

For you

Life Struggles

A man found a cocoon of an emperor moth. He took it home so that he could watch the moth come out of the cocoon. On the day a small opening appeared, he sat and watched the moth for several hours as the moth struggled to force the body through that little hole.

Then it seemed to stop making any progress. It appeared as if it had gotten as far as it could and it could go no farther. It just seemed to be stuck. Then the man, in his kindness, decided to help the moth, so he took a pair of scissors and snipped off the remaining bit of the cocoon. The moth then emerged easily.
But it had a swollen body and small, shriveled wings. The man continued to watch the moth because he expected that, at any moment, the wings would enlarge and expand to be able to support the body, which would contract in time. Neither happened! In fact, the little moth spent the rest of its life crawling around with a swollen body and shriveled body and shriveled wings. It never was able to fly.
What the man in his kindness and haste did not understand was that the restricting cocoon and the struggle required for the moth to get through the tiny opening was the way of forcing fluid from the body of the moth into its wings so that it would be ready for flight once it achieved its freedom from the cocoon. Freedom and flight would only come after the struggle. By depriving the moth of a struggle, he deprived the moth of health.
Sometimes struggles are exactly what we need in our life. If we were to go through our life without any obstacles, we would be crippled.
We would not be as strong as what we could have been. Give every opportunity a chance, leave no room for regrets.
