Good morning, all y’all!
I’ve been away from the group for a while. Well… Not really away. I’ve been on Facebook and looking at David’s GEH and NBI updates. I just haven’t posted.
And I’m sorry.
Two months ago I had absolutely no clue. It’s just that simple… No clue.
I had been living with a man who, seriously, pissed me off by simply walking into the room. He was supposed to be my husband. I think you all remember when I moved in with him last year in April. I was so excited.
He wasn’t what he portrayed himself to be. He broke up with me, but, due to the fact that I couldn’t move anywhere, I was pretty much stuck living with him. Until he told me he was moving and I’d have to locate a place to go. This being the last of a plethora of promises he made that he broke, (that I’d never have to worry about a place to live).
Enough of that horror story.
I contacted Supercuts in Vancouver, Wa. They were hiring. A friend of a friend said I could stay with her. I moved in to a bedroom in her apartment and interviewed with Supercuts, getting the job.
Some of you may recall that roommate situation turned disastrous as the woman went completely psychotic sociopath on me and threw me out the night before I started working.
Eventually, a guy I met allowed me to stay with him. And, allowed me to move my boyfriend over from Astoria, Or, as well.
Work is going well. And, the living situation is good, not perfect but good. He can’t have somebody here for more than two months, so Liam and I have to find more permanent residence. We are looking… It isn’t easy, though.
On September 16, 2016, Liam and I are getting married.
I didn’t think I was ever going to feel happiness again. I was wrong.
When we have life knocks and are in the midst of trudging through chest high shyte of daily issues added with other drama that people toss in the mix, we forget that there is an end to it.
If we continue to trudge; if we are strong and persevere; if we have, and listen to, those, like David Watters, Christine McQueen, Toni Veress, Rachel Wolff, Jack A. Ori and others from this group and within our closer circles who are unable to help with the physical needs, but always behind us with encouraging thoughts and inspiration and words of hope; if we allow others in, stranger, friend, or family who can help with physical needs; if we remain persistent that life doesn’t have us down until we’re six feet under and THAT through kicking and screaming…
IT. GETS. BETTER.
No… I’m by no means out of it. But… I’m working every day. I’m coming home to a loving man whom I adore and cherish. I have a roof, however temporary, over my head. And I’m making friends in this new city.
Doctor Who has a few lines in the series that talk about what The Doctor loves about the human race. Essentially, that we are magnificently resilient creatures and that we essentially let nothing break us.
Don’t let the things weighing you down break you. Know that there is an end.
Stand strong. Have Hope. If you haven’t any, take mine… We are, after all “Give ‘Em Hope Campaign”.
Let us give you the Hope you can’t find.
We here at GEH love you. Know that we ALL go through stuff. ALL of us. And we all need help. We are here for you in anyway we can.
