I am a scuba diver standing on the bottom of the ocean. But I don't see fish and coral and water...I just see myself...and my eyes in the mask and the bubbles. I'm just staring and standing still and breathing slowly. The water is cold. No one else is around. It's getting dark. I don't know how much air I have left.

I am waiting for.....?????

Dearest Camper,

Close your eyes and imagine the fish and the coral into being! Since all you see is a reflection, you have the power to create its form! Fill yourself up with love and let it reflect back at you.

I am a mermaid. I will take you to my deep sea grotto.

Love,
Silk

You are saying "make you own happiness". But I think many of us find that hard, if not impossible.

We try so hard to please others. Why can't there be someone to please us just as hard?

Giving and giving....or stop giving. What choices are those?

Where is giving and taking?

hugs,
camper

Hi Unhappy Camper,

Well you can do one of two things.

1. Continue to stay at the bottom of the ocean until your tank of air runs out.

2. Swim back up to the surface, get back into the boat, and find another spot in which to dive. There are so many parts of the ocean to explore...believe me alot of them have Coral and Fish that are lovely. However, remember that there will still be some sharks.

I think you'll be back up in the boat very soon. 🙂

I have been in that same abyss you are in many times in my life. I wish there were a way I could be there with you now to hold your hand and help you swim up again.

I know that you mentioned that you are a giver....I think most of us on this site feel the same way. But I think that We do need to learn to Give to ourselves. Trust me when I say this a very hard learning experience. I think it's because we don't experience the gratitude when it's directed at ourselves.

Whoever said that life was easy?
It is what we choose to make it.

What you said really hit home to me.
I was just having that same conversation with my sister two nights ago. I think it's important to vent and let out what we are feeling. Otherwise how will we know that we are not alone? That others are also feeling this way. Or that others have overcome these feelings and are actually living happily.
