Going Sane in a Crazy World

My journey through life and the lessons I learn to help me grow spiritually.

Sane Friends

That Leads to the Dark Side

I find myself working/struggling with two things today. The first is that aspect of my perfectionism that deals with my finances. If I was only better I wouldn't have financial problems. While I have learned a lot about taking better care of my finances over the years, something I wasn't really taught as a child. Most of what I struggle with is feeling less than instead of feeling the part of the human race which is having the same troubles.

The other is with the Planner. It's 2 months today since we started dating and this is where I need to make sure I don't start letting unhealthy behaviors creep in. While I'm not giving up any of my stuff for her I have to make sure I still enjoy the things I like to do. Last night at comedy improv I enjoyed the show, but I missed having her with me. I seem to go through withdrawal after being with her. The years I was married to my ex I was very addicted to her and I don't want that for this relationship. I want to stay a whole person to keep it nice and healthy. We're are going along quite nicely and that's the way I want to keep it. I know that anything worth having is worth working on.

2 people had cathartic therapy:

Just my opinion, of course. I think there is a big difference between being addicted/dependent on someone and wanting to share enjoyable events with someone you care about.



I is and it can be scary. Every few weeks or month or so, I get to yet another step and think, um, gulp, yeah I want this -- but it's sometimes weird and sometimes really great. So, yes, it's worth it, sometimes, and sounds as if, so far, things with her are. I'm happy for both of you.
