Hello~Vicki  ~ Welcome To the group~

Going back to school is a challenge ~ in itself~

My sister, now 49 is completing her teachers degree and seems quite fullfilled ~

It may seem time consuming at present...

The years and just took in negative from your mom and others from the past...but you are now here~we are here for you...take one day at a time~

Wake up in the morning~think of making a day happy one, what makes you happy?  Do you like singing, helping others...think on those positive thoughts~and it will start your role into happiness one day at a time....

I was in that backstate of negativity for 30 yrs~I became depressed ~ I had to get a new view of life~....

We can't change what happened~but today~make it count for yourself~you deserve it~

Hi to all January 25, 2008 5:04 PM

I just signed up with care2 and found you all.  I struggle with some type of negative thinking about myself.  I believe that I learned this over the years and just took in negative from my mom and others.  I am in college at 52.  I found an author that has written some good books and has information that I believe in that we create what we think about.  I see that is true.  I try to get my mind back on his information and I keep doing this again.  It is such a fight to try to turn my mind towards positive thoughts.  Can ANYONE here suggest anything to help me?  Also I know that for me, if I have input and friends that it helps me to gain positivity.  Thank You vicki  [ send green star]  [ accepted]

I have lived my entire life thinking I am passing through, and have never made it through a single day without thinking, "I just wanna go home."  I dont know where home is, or whom or what I am looking for, but I feel you and you are never completely alone.  [ send green star]  [ accepted]

Yes, Mary, he will see for himself that he is an individual that makes mistakes, like we all do.  At times we like to be perfect, yet we fail.  He is hard on himself.  Just be there for him and let him talk to you~as you are a special friend.

Mary is quite involved to help this person...

This involves mutual knowledge, esteem, and affection. Friends will welcome each other's company and exhibit loyalty towards each other, often to the point of altruism. The tastes will usually be similar and may converge, and they will share enjoyable activities. They will also engage in mutually helping behavior, such as exchange of advice and the sharing of hardship. A friend is someone who may often demonstrate reciprocating and reflective behaviors. Yet for many, friendship is nothing more than the trust that someone or something will not harm them. Value that is found in friendships is often the result of a friend demonstrating on a consistent basis:

the tendency to desire what is best for the other,

sympathy and empathy, honesty, perhaps in situations where it may be difficult for others to speak the truth, especially in terms of pointing out the perceived faults of one's counterpart

~mutual understanding.

This friend probably has to forgive himself ...

hello November 09, 2007 11:17 AM

hello
I hear that but it makes me upset to see people suffer like my friend scott does and the bad thing is that he just wants to stay in that state of mind even though i'm trying to help him so I'm letting him gather his thoughts and decide what he's going to do to change his situation
Thanks

Hi~Mary:

   Anger is a self-control attitude~even as little children they get tantrums...teens get angry when interferring their territory~and adults get angry~

Thanks, Nancy! November 01, 2007 10:41 AM

I was originally from Asia and have been relocating for 4 years now. I didn't know people here are so cold in heart. I lived with the family of my husband the first times, so everything seemed normal and nice. Since last year, we moved out and mix up with native people. I know now how it's looks like (my friends have already reminded me many times, but I didn't believed them). I have such a deep cultural shock! People are not so helpful and friendly around the neighborhood. I wish I would have never come to this place...

We have been so unlucky that we bought an apartment under where such an "incredible family" lives (the father is a drunkyard, the daughter is such a call girl, the son is a drug consumer and an unemployment, the mom has left them to feed and live with a man the same age as the son). There has been noise disturbance nights and days (loud music, quarrels, screams, parties, etc). We have tried many ways to stop it (from talking nicely to calling police), but they don't stop (instead, even intentionally have parties everyday). We filled a legal case and has been given an alcoholic judge who once appeared totally drunk in a court. Of course then, the result of our trial is nonsense. She approves their lies (even approves a statement of a witness has never appeared in the court). We have ran to neighbors for a help and to be our witnesses. They gossiped them and told us completely stories of this family, but then appeared as their witnesses as if we were the trouble makers. Others are just ignorant and say don't want to interfere with troubles (because they say it's not theirs and don't want to care).

If I don't consider my husband and was not carrying a child, I would have forsaken this country for good. Police don't come when I call (only come once from 6 time calls) and nobody here seems friendly to foreigners. I am so alone...

But I really feel alone... October 31, 2007 10:30 PM

In a foreign country, no family, no friends. My neighborhood is as cold as winter. When you ran to them for a help, they will not help. Some even just look at you as if you are an alien. I have been relocating for years, but have found no friendliness at all. The only friendly people are just the same foreigners. I think I live in a wrong place. I wish a got a wing to fly.

Anyone experienced this?
