Expression of Our Feelings

Posted by @piglit in Just Want to Talk, May 26, 2012

Hello my dear friends I thought that I would start a new post for us and just see how it goes. Each and everyday we experience different ways that we feel. We may feel happy, sad, grumpy, overjoyed. Feelings have a special place in our daily life and I thought that if we wrote and explained how we felt it would be good for us. Anyway let's see how it goes. You may even like to add a little quote as well. Take care hope to hear from you Annie

I have felt warmth through friends, They are so precious in our lives and should be treasured always.
A friend is one that know's who you are,
understands where you have been'
accepts what you have become,
and still gently allows you to grow.
Author William Shakesphere
True friends are so special in our lives to be cherished always.

I am in touch with my grieve right now. I feel the need to cry. I feel the abandonment pain and sadness. It is a deep pain I feel nearly everyday that I am depress. The past experiences come with much emotion. Yes crying helps...I find it hard to cry but when I did then it's a relief.

Posted by @piglit, May 26, 2012

You know my dear Iraku when we feel grief in our lives and we do for many reasons, oneof the ways to release the emotion is to cry and it does help my sweetie. i know that things aren't easy for you at the present time but things will get better. In the meantime I'm always here and so are your other friends if you need us we will help you. Hugs Piglit

True true Piglit, thanks...hugs. Tear's the flows of emotion that needs to be clear out from our body. I think many people find it hard to response when someone's crying.

I was raised with the thought that crying always had negative connotations but as I've matured I'm ok with crying. I feel relief as well Iraku. I'm so sorry that you're in such despair. Please remember that we care for and about you and that you matter to us a great deal!
Big hug and tissues,

I Will Smile Again
Though tears flow from these eyes,
I will smile again,
And trust tomorrow the sun will shine,
Though darkness may enfold me,
Though shattered lost and broken,
Though heart could bearly bear it all,
Though tired and weary and confused,
Though badly hurt and bruised.
I know that I will smile again,
And I will smile again.

For you my dear Friend Rox, as your feelings have been hurt lately.
Remember When your hurt know that darkness is passing. and there's always light at the end of the tunnel
You my dear friend will smile again,
Always here for you Annie x0

I am feeling ok...not sad but stable and feel stronger than the past. I am trying not to overly excited when I feel joy so that I could indulge in my joy without getting exhausted by it. There is fear though....the fear of me not be able to cope with life pressure but for now I can see that my pain will comes and goes just like the joy and the laugh. I will take it one day at a time. Have a nice day my friends.

My dear friends I welcome you all again. Today I have chosen two quotes one on feeling lonely as we all do sometimes and another on friendship. May your day again be filled with some sunshine and not to many challenges Hugs Annie

Lonliness
No my friends,
Darkness is not everywhere,
for here and there,
I find faces illuminated from within'
paper laterns among dark trees.


Friendship

A friend is someone you
can be alone with or have nothing
to do and not to be able to think
of anything to say
and be comfortable in
Silence

Stay safe my dear friends and cherish each and everyday

Always here for you all Annie xo

That is beautiful Annie.
Emotions were all over the place when my divorce was not finalized due to documents not being submitted. Of course, intentionally done. Interestingly, I took a nap and woke up just fine.
Go figure? No more power over my feelings and can no longer ruin my days... I'm free!

My dear friends always remember.
Many people will walk in and out of your life, but only true friends
will leave footprints in your heart

Another quote today i have chosen for you is patience

The keys to patience are
acceptance and faith
Accept things as they are, and
look realistically at the world around you.
Have faith in yourself and in the direction you have chosen.

I wish you all a day filled with kindness and understanding surrounding you all
Hugs Annie

As you know, Annie, I am definitely passionate about acceptance and patience. These are attributes that we all should possess but sadly do not.
If, this world were more accepting and patient, perhaps many of the social injustices many are exposed to would occur with less frequency.
Once again, a beautiful quote but also a goal for many who struggle with the need to pick apart differences and are quick to judge.
Have a wonderful day my friends ....
Hugs,
Rox

Piglet......you seem like a very happy lady. I have moved to a new city and am 72 yrs. old. Making friends has been difficult but I manage to keep myself fairly contented with mny knitting, reading, puppy and family. At the moment I am battling bladder infection and nothing is working at the moment. Friends are the garden of life and I left my garden in Calgary. Having family close is wonderful but they are very busy. At times, I have been able to voice my feelings to old friends and it feels so good. I have found a church that is a good place to meet people but my health hasn't been good. I will check in again tomorrow to see what is going on. Mary Ann........from New Westminster.

Posted by @piglit, May 30, 2012

Hi Mary Ann, What kind words. i do try to stay happy, I'm a very positive person, I find that this helps in life. We all have our up and downs as you know. I too believe that friends are the garden of life and true friends can be hard to find. I started this post as I beleive that it is good to be able to talk openly about our feelings. Each day i put up a new quote or verse in the hopes that in some ltittle way I will make a difference to someone's day.I do so hope that you feel better soon, and please come and visit again. We have a great support group hear and I/many others are more than willing to care help and understand. Take care Piglit

HI Roxie. Thanks for your message. It sounds as though there are some friendly women on this message board. I have been suffering with bladder infection but this morning I am feeling better. Not a pleasant time for the past two weeks. It is raining here in New Westminister which is near Vancouver, BC. Talk soon. Mary Ann

Posted by @littledreamer, Jun 1, 2012

Van Couver is SO BEAUTIFUL! I went there when I was younger and I absolutely adore it. I am glad you're feeling better. Whenever I have a bladder infection I drink a lot of water and eat spinach and other mixed greens. I also drink some organic tea. Doing all that always seem to help.

newwest72

Posted by @newwest72, Jun 1, 2012

Hi Little Dreamer
I am off to the lab. Not doing well as it turns out. I do drink a lot of water,but haven't had a lot of spinach except for last night. Gosh I enjoy hearing from my new friends. Today it is raining but tomorrow the sun will shine. I will let you know what the results are. Don't like being in pain. Tomorrow my 7 yr. old grandson is having his first piano recital. I knit a lot and love it. Keeps me sane.....I have a tag for my knitting bag that says "I knit so I won't kill somebody!!!' Helps to keep my thoughts positive and be negative. Life is worth living, AND I WANT TO DO JUST THAT!!!!! MARY ANN

hI PIGLIT......I am home from my first day out all week. Felt good to get out of my four walls. They are dismantling the parking lot for patients at the lab so I had to haul my walker up and down a few stairs but people are so kind when they see that you are struggling. A lovely lady helped me up and I asked a young fellow to help me down. People don't mind helping. Took my puppy to the park so she could run then came home and slept for two hours. The lab assistant said I wouldn't find out what the problem is until next week so I still have a few days to wait. Blue Bloods is on tonight. I love that program and the actors....yum yum!!!!! bye for now.

Hi Mary Ann. Glad that your home. It's not good when your having tests, I know thhis myself. It gets so tiring. People can be kind and understanding it is of great comfort that people do still exist that are willing to help you. How lovely a little puppy, mine i call a puupy but he is a big 33.5kg dog that thinks he is as tiny as a little jack russell.Please let me know the results when you get them back and I hope you feel bettter soon. Don't know the show in Australia but enjoy. Always here if you need me anytime Piglit

I am so glad you found Mayo Clinic Connect. This community is very supportive and non-judgemental. Just like Roxie43 said, you'll make friends here.
I know moving is kinda hard. I had to move when I was 8 years old and it was pretty traumatic for me. It took me a little bit to meet friends, but eventually I found people who really care for me. I also ended up really enjoyed the place that I moved to because they have a lot of cool opportunities. They have a really nice YMCA here too. Maybe you could see if there is a YMCA near you. There's a lot of older people that go to YMCA and they have programming for all ages. You'll meet a lot of people there.

I am happy that we have all found Mayo discussions because being supported by others who can genuinely identify with another's struggles is important for the recovery process ...

Isn't it great that we have this wonderful 'garden of friends' here? Friends that we don't have to get dressed for and get to wherever they are to be 'together'. When we are just not up to much physically it can be so isolating. My friends here help me not to isolate (thanks)
so welcome aboard Mary Ann

My dear friends the quotes that i have chosen for today are forgiveness and never to give up. Hope you day is filled with joy and peace

Forgiveness

When you hold resentment toward another,
you are bound to that person,
or condition by an emotional link

that is stronger than steel,
Forgiveness is the only way to dissolve that link
and get free

Remember my dear friends,
The weak can never forgive

Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong..

Never give up.
When you feel like giving up,
remember why you held on for so long
in the first place

Yesterday I dared to struggle,
Today I dare to win.

Always here for you all if you need me
Hope you day is filled with sunshine
Hugs Annie

My dear friends i welcome you again to express our feelings. I today have chosen Kindness and Hope. I wish your day to be filled with the kindness of others and the hope we all need to uplift our spirits.

Kindness
Love and kindness are never wasted,
They always make a difference,
They bless the one who receives them,
and they bless you the giver.

Always remember my dear friends.
No act of kindness,
however small,
is ever wasted.

Hope
The wings of hope carry us,
soaring high above the driving winds
of life.

Remember also my dear friends,
When the world says "Give up"
Hope whispers,
'Try it one more time'

Always here for you my dear friends
Hugs
Annie
