The last couple of days I’ve been especially honest in my reactions to people. I am finding more and more that I am most certainly my mother’s daughter! She was loved and respected by many… and intensely disliked by others. Daddy described my style of communication as a reality punch in the face earlier today. I tend to agree. There are those who love it … Continue reading Reality Punch in the Face
There has been a slew of things happen in the last 8+ months that just add to the feeling of things being out of control. Each one worse than the last. The mounting stress is killing both of us. For the moment, I can only speak for myself. It’s my moment of clarity after all. This isn’t the first time in my life that I’ve … Continue reading Moment of Clarity
So many people have the expectation that others will be gentle with their feelings and pussy foot around an issue. There’s also an expectation many people have that everything will be handled in private. I’m not wired that way. It’s not a bad thing. The same supervisor that went through the hurt feelings aren’t always your fault alone routine with me, also had a similar … Continue reading Blunt isn’t always bad
I was in the 7th grade (1983/84) when I first heard of the Satanic Bible. Hushed tones carried through the classroom before the teacher came in as the kids talked about it. The boys being tough and cool trying to shock the girls. Like pretty much everyone else I ran with, none of us dared even look for a copy of the book, much less … Continue reading The Satanic Witch by Anton LaVey
I remember having my first existential crisis right before my 25th birthday. It was bad! I’ve not had one like that since. My senior year of high school I knew I wanted to be a therapist, an MFT. I had my school picked out. I knew I’d need graduate school to reach my professional goal and how long the entire process would take for licensure. … Continue reading Life Goals
Daddy and I have been going out quite a bit lately. I don’t leave the house without making sure my hair and makeup are done and I have on a really nice looking outfit. It’s how I was raised and how I’m wired. In the last week or so, I’ve noticed so many women staring and giving me really mean, judgmental looks as I mind … Continue reading Stop staring and put the effort in!
When I first joined Facebook I did what everyone did…. look up old friends, classmates, exs, co-workers, distant relatives. Curiosity. Hey, I wonder whatever happened to (blank)? I stumbled across my very first boyfriend. Let’s call him, Todd. He gave me a paragraph update on his life. Brief, polite. Ending with “My wife and I don’t allow friends with ex’s in our relationship”. I was … Continue reading Ex’s are ex’s for a reason!
There have been many times in my life that i’ve held my breath and jumped in head first for what i know will be better in the long run. Today, i start that journey again. This time, i’m asking Daddy to trust, too. It’s not easy, but we’re doing it. From the moment my mom died leaving me the house in a trust it’s been … Continue reading 1, 2, 3… JUMP!
Five years ago I was married to another man and had an ectopic pregnancy. It was a blessing, yet the hardest experience of my life. We were in the honeymoon cycle of domestic violence. The cycle of the domestic violence period before things get bad again. It’s romantic, sweet, fun, you fall in love with your partner all over again and the sex is great! … Continue reading My Girl, Katie
Did my title get your attention? If it didn’t… read on. I’ll give you reason to read. I had a rough ending to a friendship a year ago. I’d finally broken out of my chains of being an ugly, fat girl and was delighting in the attention based on my looks for the first time in my life. Yes, I’m sexy and I know it!!! … Continue reading Mean Fat Girls
