    LIVEHAPPY123 is bang on!

    I really think getting up early and going to bed earlier is a great idea for both you and Nicholas. He needs do you. I understand WHY you typically saty up, however I really think Nicholas and you benefit more by going to bed earlier and getting up earlier.

    He needs the attention and you need the stability and love you will get from spending that time with YOU and your son.

    I also think that when you and Nicholas are good...YOU will definitely feel better about yourself in the long run.

    As mom's we get a sense of satisfaction and internal peace knowing that our kids are doing well and growing and succeeding. When he gets more one on one time with you, he will certainly be less annoying to you and will also not have to do things to get your attention. You will have a much better mother son relationship.

    Counseling is always a great idea....but do it for YOU and not for hubby or even with hubby. Who knows you may get all the strength you need on your own... knowing that you may need it is a great step in the right direction.

    No one has the right to be physical in any relationship. EVER! I am very sad to know that this took place, whether you held you own or not, that is really not the point. It shouldn't happen...EVER!

    you and Nicholas are worth more...and hell, so is your husband!

    You are STRONG and beautiful and don't need anyone to love you but YOU and your son. Remember that you are both worth it.

    Anyway...I am done rambling on...

    Angel, you are so right. You are so right, we can't do this for anyone else. I took up thi chi for a few years and karate. I need to go back and get my black belt. I understand the struggles of marriage. I had a rocky weekend, and mines got physical as well this past saturday with my husband. I think I scared him more than anything; because I was holding my own. I didn't hurt him nor did he hurt me. Our feelings were hurt, but we got past it. I was already upset from my saturday morning blog. I was dealing with so many emotions, and my husband felt it was the time to come in and play boss over me. That does not come across good while I'm having my monthy visit with tom. It never does, and I was so tired of the foolishness. Woman did you hear me. Yeah! I heard him, but I was dealing with my own personal stuff and I didn't have time to listen to his BS. It was sure BS and I didn't want to hear it, and I've never been one for someone to stand over me and bark orders at me. NEVER! I stayed off to myself for the rest of the night. I prayed and I asked GOD for direction. My direction took me right to the house of GOD the next morning. My father (God) was telling me. I'll handle him -just leave him to me. I'll handle him. We have our good days and our bad days. I'm not a child and you can't treat me as such. You are worth this journey and your happiness. I'm so sorry that you had a crappy run in with the hubby. I know you love him, but sometimes we have to remind ourselves that we are worth whatever we choose to do, and we must stay focus on us. I told my husband Saturday. I do all I can for you, and you do what you can for me, but I do all I can... ALL! And when you are doing ALL, it get tiredsome, and I was tired. Just tired of all the low down games and drama. So, I pushed that stuff up into the hands of the lord, and I didn't look back or think back on it. We got all right. Put it in the master hands and leave it there.
    You are worth your journey, and I thank you so much for sharing this vblog with all of us, because I too have realize I'm worth this journey. I'm worth much more than stressful and foolish games. You will be alright. You will be alright.

    You are so right, each of us has to love ourselves and make these changes for ourselves or we'll never succeed or be truly happy. Hoping the tension you're dealing w/ gets better. Love your b/vlogs, lady, keep it up!

    It truly does need to be for yourself in order to really succeed. You have to love yourself enough to commit to yourself. Way to go!! You are doing an awesome job, and I pray for the tension to subside.

    You do have to love yourself. I have come to realize that we have to fix ourselves and change ourselves before we can expect anyone else to change. Treat others as you want them to treat you; and that goes for yourself. We cannot expect things great from ourselves when we donot treat ourselves great! I have always waited for others to change to make me happy, now I am changing myself to make me happy. You can and you WILL do this!
