The shadow over any past relationship

Last Monday, I received her "no" to my invitation to heal at my home. It didn't come as a surprise. Too much time had already expired. Her entire message did surprise me though and even made me sad for a moment. The history of our relationship is still hanging like a dark cloud (or shadow) over any future together. I suppose the above relates to several sayings,...

What are the odds in Love?

Recently, I wrote that I'm looking for a combination of a friend, lover, muse and a soulmate. An online friend added another relevant role that is important to her (and me): a partner.

He died at 61 and never saw his sons reach their full potential. That memory left a scar inside me. My...

I'm using this blog to find out what I think of that. My blog title contains my initial feeling on this topic. I'm not sure if I see myself as a strong person. I am an independent person though. Others...

Get a grip on myself

I need to get a grip on myself. My emotions are taking over. Ratio is on the losing hand. For several days, I have been feeling empty. Also see my 2016 blog on palpable emptiness. An online friend said that I need a hug. She's more right than she may know. Hugs are missing in my life. Partly, this is of my own doing. It's difficult (for me) to combine a preference...
