Just another day in the neighborhood....

Good 'ole Mr Rodgers. He made things seem so simple and easy, didn't he? Then you grow up and find out what its all about. You get married, and then its over, for one reason or another and you are out there, alone and honestly, real life sets in. You've never lived alone, never not had someone in your life. You've either had your kids around you, your husband or wife, parents, brother or sister..... just someone was there. What happens when the kids leave home, mom and dad have either passed on or live not so close anymore... the same with your siblings, and your marriage is over. What do you do then? Trying to find someone to love and to love you isn't easy. Finding someone with whom to share your life is just not easy. Sometimes, you think you've found just the right person, only to have it blow up in your face. You want to give up, should give up.... but something keeps you hangin on. You meet 1 more person and the hope is there, things seem to be going ok, but with all you've been thru...your self esteem is rather low so you doubt what you feel and what you even see and are told. Its gonna take some time and hopefully the people in your life will be patient and give you time to readjust to life as it is, not as you knew it.

Hang in there Suzie, don't give up hope. I know there's days I get kinda frustrated, depressed etc., wondering why the hell I keep goin on but something just seems to keep prodding me forward. Have a nice day and hope you find what you are looking for.

I'm glad you are here and blogging! I'm finding it helps to write things out, thoughts and hopes and desires and disappointments and frustrations. And the occaisional wonderful moment to share and lift up a reader or two. Welcome and know you are very much NOT alone my friend!

SuzieQ--Thankyou for reading and commenting on my Blog. There are really good people here, and I think you will enjoy blogging. it is hard to see your marriage end for whatever reason. Mine ended after 33 years of marriage, and I was the one who ended it, but it still hurts. I think that being alone is the hardest thing to go through. There is no one to hug or kiss you, or just hold you and cuddle you. But we get through it because we have to. We dry the tears and just go on.

"Don't cry because it's over; smile because it happened."

Seems that there is always times in our lives when things are not perfect! People may look happy on the outside, but there is always something every one has to deal with or overcome. We have to look inside of ourselves and discover what is there and what we want to happen! We can't depend on any thing else or any one else to make us happy! We have to decide we want to be happy and do the things that makes us as a individual happy. I know its hard for some people to look inside, but you know I think you have to really be alone, to figure it out. Keep trying to get there and reward yourself for being strong and like what you do. Then maybe you will attract what is good for you. Believe it and it will happen!
