I found this interesting that the author says exactly what I feel but cannot connect with right now.
In the conditon of my face and the prison I let myself “live in” I find that true friends do not make me feel horrible, or yucky. I feel that every day.
Why is it that those we live with seem to criticize us the most????!!!
My only goal for 2012 as I have said in my past is to get my lazar treatments…so
keep encouraging me as I tend to share my money, my paychecks…tell me NO.
I’ts time for JACKIE!!!
Robert Leahy, PhD, author of Beat the Blues Before They Beat You is my go-to guy when I’m writing psychology pieces. He tells me, “The quality of friendships is better at midlife — for women especially who are likely to have more and better friends than men do.” That’s important. “One of the predictors of suicide is the sense of connectedness people have. People who don’t have friends are at higher risk,” Leahy says. He likes the idea of making sure you’re seeing friends regularly – eyeball to eyeball, not just in an e-mail or a text.
So dash off an e-mail right now before you log off, suggesting a regular time to get together with a friend. Send her (or him) the link to this blog and say, “We don’t spend enough time together. I miss you! Let’s make ourselves a standing date.” You’ll be glad you did: I guarantee it!
