just sharing a few things

Trapped Within ~~~~

I feel trapped... Within my fears Within my dreams Within my hope Within my insecurities Within my life Within my love Within my loneliness I can't escape these feelings They always come back I could be happy *as forever* And with a single, errant thought CRASH The warm feeling is gone Replaced by a cold, bitter being Anger replaces love Fear replaces the sense of being Hate and insecurities replace all... Over, and over... It's a cycle Happy to sad Content to anger Feeling loved to feeling cold And I wish for the cycle to stop...

I have been through some terrible times in my life, some of which actually happened." Mark Twain

Don't worry about what others think of you...They don't!
They're too busy worrying about what you think of them." Rich DeVos

Our problem isn't that we have these uncomfortable feelings we're calling fear, it's what those feelings do to us. We feel threatened by people places situations and things that are no threat to us at all, sometimes so threatened that these fears plunge us into depression. When we dream about doing things that would be pleasant or productive, fear comes in and squelches those dreams. Fear interferes with healthy relationships and causes us to imagine and react to conflict that isn't there, creating the very conflict we imagined. Fear causes us to always focus on the worst possible outcome to any situation.

 I really like the Trapped Within--so true how I feel, the lasting effects of alcoholism.
