Need to get out of my rut

Monday, May 31, 2010

I have been dealing with a lot of family issues lately, and it is draining me. I also realized that I have been a little depressed as well. Part of that was just the winter doldrums and the other is the family stuff.

I have not talked to my son in New York for over 3 years, not my choice. It is really taking a toll on me. I have no reason to why he has removed himself from the family, and I am sad about it.

I miss him so much!

It is affecting how I live my life, and I do not like that. I have tried everything I can think of to reach out to him, but to no avail.

I need to try to start to take care of me.

I need prayer for my son Joshua and me.

I need to focus on the positive and stop letting this consume my life.

Please pray.

    You are right - focus on the positives - he might have something going on that he doesnt want to involve others in. I know my parents would like it if I was more involved with them, but its tiring at times being around them, so I avoid it. Everyone has their reasons... for better or worse.... but focus on you and what you can is what matters. I know its frustrating, but hang in there, dont let it get you too down! Enjoy the rest of your week!

    My dad stopped talking to me 5 years ago. I pray for him a lot and sent him a note that no explanation or apology is necessary for him to come back into my life and that I am waiting and that I love him. Sometimes people just get into their own world. I am still waiting (and I may always wait), but I am also getting on with my life because I deserve it and SO DO YOU. It's ok to mourn what you are losing, but go ahead and do that and move forward.
