Well today is the deadline I gave myself in my 20's--that when I turn 40, I would be rid of the codependant alcholic relationship. Well I'm 40 today, and I'm still here. You would think I would be depressed, but I'm not. I know that giving yourself a deadline, is a way of giving yourself a reason to live in denial. That deadline gave me permission to live with the emotional baggage that go with being in that kind of relationship. I'm thru with these false deadlines. I know that I will be ready when I get there.....and I'm searching and working on that everyday. I have enrolled my 3 year old son into pre-school, now I have time available to go to daytime alanon meetings. And I will be there next monday.
SO instead of feeling sorry for myself, and feeling that my life is slipping by me and all the unhappiness. I am thankful for my wonderful 4 children....am thankful for a man who does love me, and that I know a God that truly cares. That I have a way to vent my feelings to people who will listen, identify and give support. I say HAPPY 40TH BIRTHDAY TO ME!!!!!!!!

Happy 40th! I want to tell you that my 40th year was my best, and my hardest. I'm 41 now.

Change is coming. You sound as if you are prepared.

Have a wonderful birthday!!!

Love,

Ren'ai

40 was my breakout year too!! I finally said to myself...Hey I'm old enough now to make my own decisions, I'm old enough to live my own life for myself.

This was a long time coming my friend, keep working on it!

Happy Birthday to YOU! It's my mother's birthday to, and I'm sending prayers to both you and her that you will find the strength to heal. It sounds like you are taking major steps to get there...that is the best present you can give to yourself. My 40th went completely unnoticed, but I now realize that I was wrong and extremely co-dependent to expect hoopla from my husband on my birthday. A card would have been nice, though. I'll throw my own party when I'm 50! You go girl!
