Just want attention


Is it ok that I just want attention sometimes? I haven't been on here in forever so it seems! I am struggling w my sanity. I talked to my cousin today. She is such an uplifter & she helped me laugh off some stuff that bothers both of us. I haven't been on here because I just couldn't get real. I have been faking it till I make it. Some people might think that is not a good way to think but sometimes that is the best I can do! The worst is still lingering. I have asked my higher power to remove some of this from me. It is difficult but doable. Just need to trust in the process. I am not a newcomer. Kathleen

{{{Kathleen}}}. Of course I remember your name from many posts ago. Welcome back. Lately what's on my mind is Let go or be dragged. I can hold onto impossible, painful, repetitive things, or I can help myself by trying like heck to Let go and let God. I spent so many years miserable that I don't want to be miserable anymore. So that's why I keep coming back. I find that working this program does actually allow me to find peace and happiness much of the time. I give myself permission to get help. Here it is, at my fingertips and taking five minutes to read and post. Love and light to you. :)

Hello Kathleen!!

I can reaffirm that by you "trusting in the process" and giving it to your HP helps all of us for sure!

Wishing you peace {{HUGS}}.

(((((Kathleen!))))) welcome back! I've found myself dragging myself to meetings several times throughout my recovery process. Some times, I feel like I'm just not seeing the progress or the changes I want. What I know to be true is that when I keep coming back, there are small changes happening inside me, even if I cannot notice them. Sometimes, after showing up for several months on end, something will suddenly fall into place and there is a watershed effect. Keep coming back, it is great to see you here again!

(((Kathleen)))) hello again :) Glad you had a good conversation with your cousin and you were able to be supportive of one another. I think it's OK to want attention and share that. I'm finding practicing lots of daily self care and letting go is helping me right now with struggles. Wishing you the best of outcomes with whatever life issues you are going through. TT

There is nothing wrong with wanting attention. We all desire to be seen and to be heard. That being said, no one person or thing can fulfill all my needs or meet my expectations. Relationships will often fall short of how I think they should be. I have learned to draw from a variety of sources to fill my own cup.
