Is it just me, or is the world weird this week??

Post by anniel on Wed Aug 01, 2012 3:34 am

Actually the past couple of weeks it seems like so much s___t has hit the fan for so many--and I even see a lack of the understanding diplomacy & patience here as well. Kinda like "the love of many has waxed cold". I don't mean that as a criticism, but an observation. I have personally gone through the meat grinder lately...and it seems like every time I turn around a dear one is airing a similar story! confused

I know what you mean.
I was diagnosed breast cancer on the 4th of july and going through some rough weather at this moment.
I didn't post this yet on the forum because there are 'stories' which are far more hurting than mine. Like Brian Wolfe, or loosing loved relatives, sick children etc.
My heart reaches out for all those and I'm thinking of them, hoping everything's going to be all right.
Only this sunday I posted my bad news on my Facebook and wuppie Waggon and was blasted away by all the sweet, kind reactions from fellow facepainters I (most of them) never have met in real live! It felt like taking a warm bath!!
So yes... There is a lot of s..t going around, but I can still feel the care of other people!
I hope things are gong a little bit better now for you?!

Dear l!zzie:
Everyone matters. You matter. Other people's trials and tribulations do NOT mean that TOU don't deserve to hear wishes of hope, and health from the Face Paint Forum.
I wish you smooth sailing and a speedy recovery.

lizzie, my dear girl, I wish you would have shared sooner. I look at my little piddly situations and think; how trivial my stupid bad luck is. You are immediately being lifted in prayer and I hope we can be of some comfort to you through all that is ahead of you. I sincerely wish that this forum had a transporter that could take us to each other and give real hugs and comfort instead of cyber hugs and comfort.
I love you I love you I love you I love you

First of all: Sorry Anniel, if this hijacks your thread, something triggered me, and words just came out.....

Thanks Lisa and Rhonda, for your sweet words.
I know I matter, just like everybody else, it's just that so many people are even worse...
Rhonda, there are many people in my real life, and most of them are a great help to me too. But not all of them! I discovered that distance doesn't always matter, but it does matter what people are giving you. Most of you are far far away from me, but are touching my heart more than people IRL.
I feel 'at home' at this forum!
So please... Keep me laughing at your posts and many others, it really brings little silver linings on dark cloudy days!!

Anniel..Sounds like a rough week for you,,Maybe everyone gets caught up in there own stuff....I am sure that people do really care,,
Lizzie ,,what awful news to receive,,It;s funny how we keep to ourselves alot because everyone else has stuff going on..I included have had a real rough year,,one thing after another,,I have had friends not want to unload on me and I have been horrified that they would feel that way..I would love to be there for them and comfort them,,because thats what friends do.
I always feel blessed to be a part of my friends lives and everything that goes with it....That is life..up and down....
Lizzie..take care of yourself and when your feeling blue dont forget I am here,,feel free to message,,same goes to you Anniel..I love people very much,, Always an ear,,no matter what is going on in my life. I love you

Anniel,

The heat of summer has people doing weird things...

Lizzie,
I am a 3 year survivor...I underwent a bilateral mastectomy in 2009 (no recon) with a surprise visit from the chemo fairy.

Please contact me anytime if you want to talk or have questions.


No one (including me) should feel that their problems don't matter or are not important enough. We all matter.

You guys are so sweet, and Lizzie--you didn't hijack at all--just shared. I have been amazed that it is so across the board with majors for so many many people, kinda wondering about it--Yeah, got some personal stuff as well, but floored at the volumes with everybody. Thanks for the thoughts and prayers!!

Oh, maybe the heat's part of it, never thought of that? I was thinking weird planetary influences, the water, who knows??

FreedSpirit, thank you!

Jodie and Lakowski911, reassuring to hear that someone else noticed too & I'm not completely nutso in my own little world...(well, maybe I am, come to think of it...)

Stay safe!

Lizzie--Just finished "One Minute Cure" by Madison Cavanaugh (got on amazon). I am a 28 year cancer survivor (without the medical interventions that were recommended--an abortion, a hysterectomy, chemo & radiation).

Anniel...full moon AND heat? bad combo!
Lizzie, how sweet thinking of others. We all care about Brian Wolfe, but there are plenty of great, caring people who will also keep you in their prayers & blow your socks off w/humor on a tough day.
Counting my Blessings & LOVING the FPF!

Lizzie, I am sending positive thoughts to you. Anniel, I also see a shift in some people.

Here's an article that I think applies to the issues some of you have brought up. We all have unique personalities and experiences which shape our beliefs and practices. This article is not solely about Chick-fil-A but more our tolerance and acceptance of one another. I especially like the part about how messy conversations lead eventually to tolerance and understanding.

Yes, it's been weird for me. A friend lost her 32 year old husband to a massive heart attack. They have two little girls. I'm heartbroken for them. The news about Brian Wolfe is tough to take too. I'm so thankful for what I have (and have asked my hubby to up his life insurance.)
