What loving helpful words from the heart from you
by: Anonymous

I've tried from time to time to stand upside down in front of the mirror not too often mind you: But I was still the same beautiful within person as if I was standing looking at myself in the mirror: I gave you five stars: why? I believe you truly spoke from your heart after arriving back from a life changeing event: I presume that is what you are sharing with me, Darlene, and her many visitors: Great, I am so happy for you: Yes, even in the closest of families we only know the surfice side, we make judgements on same: building honest natural trusting relationships is lifes challenge for most of us: Our barriers are up and stay up until we become lucky, blessed to find mr/miss right for us who values, resepct and allows us to push back the petals of fear, mis-trust etc we've guarded so ever so rigidily all the years: I have been blessed to cross path's with real and true families who were an open book to each other and for each other; all kinds of every type of family may I add: what was openness in one ceratinly was not the same in others: The trusting, the valueing, the permissions, the freedoms was a toatl learning human experience for me; Again the hiddenness of what goes on behind closed doors allowed them to be so: There is no such thing as a perfect family as I learned years later from the boys and girls who walked to school with me: Self presevation, false values, false impressions were rife then where I lived: They were not good times or good anything: Abuse was rife when I felt i was the only one etc: Love and respect had to be earned, honour your father and mother the way I tell you to: I am only doing this for your own good was said to me many a time as my bare bottom was thrashed; False respect for authority figures was in plenty: Fear of losing one's job, fear of being found out, fear of being bold knowing the consequences: deceitfulnes was built into me and alot of my generation: For me meeting with those who went to school along the road with me and we trusting each other with our childhood memories of abuse and being abused was a life changing event for me: The knowing the inner person (child) of these people who struggled as I had done to make a real sense of it all: stemmed their growth to full maturity but the one peace of mind they all had was that they did not rear thier children as they were reared themselves: Happy families all when I met them, a beutiful realtionship between parents and children; being expressed naturally: Much thanks for your honesty in this sharing: You are beautiful faced up or faced down; You are the same wonderful and true person: So celebrate you, you are worth celebrating; I am saying that to you; pretty please stand on your head or feet in front of the mirror and say I am worth celebrating: Have a healthy mind in a healthy body;be gentle, loving and kind to yourself and your body: I WILL: I CAN: I MUST BECAUSE I AM WORTH IT:
