Hi, last time I wrote was in January. I left a bad financial situation, a relationship that was not going anywhere, and constant unemployment. I made the decision to leave the area and move in with my family until I could get my feet on the ground. Within 6 months, I found a full-time job I LOVE, I am going back to school part time and my relationship is turning around (although still has a long way to go). Do I believe this was luck? NOt at all. I believe that when you constantly bang your head against a wall, you must take ACTION. Do something different, even if it is a tiny change. Steer to a new direction and you will know intuitively if you are on the course that is right for you. I'm not saying my life is going to be all roses from here on in, but I'm here to tell you that there is light at the end of the tunnel. SOmetimes it's truly hard to believe that, but it's true. It reminds me of my favourite saying "Leap and the Net will Appear." Good luck.

Good for you Faith. Thanks for the encouragement. I sure do need it. I am taking action but I am extremely impatient. It is good to know that things do change for the better and I just need to be patient. Patience-Yuck!!!

Thanks and its good to hear the good stuff.

Faith,
What you say is so true. I had been miserable for years, clinging to what little security I had, thinking I was trapped. FEAR is real, but we create a set of behaviors that support the concept. I did something like you, except I had no support. Moved no money, no family, no friends. It has been difficult, but rewarding. It has been blind faith, and a constant chanting of that mantra, let go and let God, that keeps me going. But it is working. It is not easy, and I don't know where I will end up, but I feel free.
I have had every opportunity to go back to what I left, that caused me temporary confusion. But I am clear, that everything will be ok. It is almost one year, I am still in the process, and think the process is never ending, but life is good. So to all who are thinking about change, know that the change has begun, once you put the thought out there. You can't be in two places at the same time. If you can understand that. If you are not at peace where you are, create the place where you want to be and go there. Action creates action. There are so many women who are stuck, I was one of them. Complacency is a disease. I had it. Being alone is hard, but better than being a lonely victim. Even though I am in a struggle, it is my struggle, my choices, and when I go to bed at night I say good job, you survived today. That empowers me to get up tommorow. The light shines bright, and my new saying since we are sharing When your back is up against the wall do a back flip. Just do it, the nets are out there.

Hi Molly,

I can relate to your post so much. Thanks for writing it. Yes, I am the type of person who will take the risks needed to get better, but like you, I don't have any support either. It is really hard but maybe with places like this we can support each other.

Right now, this moment :), things are good. But I am a little hypervigilant about my feelings. I am working my way out of a codependent relationship and its tough. Otherwise my life is good.

Tomorrow I am seeing a new therapist. I am happy and grateful for the opportunity for more support. I figure I will take ALL that I can get. Here, there everywhere!!! Except for this one relationship people have been great recently. Maybe I am close to my goal????

Faith and Molly-Good luck and please post soon again.
