Time flies...

...Regardless of whether you're happy or completely miserable.

Unbelievable

I have been chatting with woman after woman about how the system that's is supposed to be set up to help woman and children move on is letting everyone down. There is no help, there is no hope. Why is that? Can anyone answer this simple question ? I know now from my own experiences that it's true, a useless ridiculous system. I feel like giving up ! Or going to the news with my story cause there is a lot more to the story than what I have confessed today. A lot more !

Self Love

I came to your place and I was going to tell you yes. The thought still terrified me but this time there was a hint of excitement and resolution. This could be a good thing. As I sit down and you make tea I hear you say, “I’ve started dating someone...” Oh. I’m happy for you. I recognize I took too long and that’s okay. Someday I will say yes to someone. First I’ll start with me.

Hospital burnout

The higher up management of the lower mainland health authority does not care about staff retention or patient safety no matter how many "thankful" letters they send out to frontline workers to make themselves feel better

Wow….

Am I ever stupid…what magical land did I think I was living in.

All the humiliation you can handle

It’s bad enough that I applied for a job at half my usual salary. After I applied, I got a request to do an automated voice interview where I speak my answers to the computer and they are recorded. It’s an HR bot. I find it repugnant to sound stoked, enthusiastic and eager, speaking to no one for a minimum wage job.

Be kind

At the gas station I saw this homeless man sitting out front ask if a woman needed help with a door as she had a baby stroller. I thought it looked like she was being rude to him possibly saying she didn't need his help before walking in but on her way out she had a huge bag of stuff for him and even went back in to buy him cigarettes after they talked for a bit. They shook hands and as she walked away he teared up. It's things like this that give me faith in humanity. Be kind to people because you never know what they're going through. Don't let cold people make you cold too. Be the light that we need in this world. Happy New year, everyone.

Holding Space

Posting here often feels like I’m sitting in a group while we each take turns sharing what’s on our minds. I cherish your thoughts, stories, frustrations, pain, loves. Each of you helps remind me that I’m human. And that I’m not alone.

Please don’t

I confess that when someone shares absolutely everything happening in their life on social media, I lose a little respect for them. Let’s face it, we all have hard times or challenges, but we don’t need to advertise every detail, do we? It’s a little cringy when an adult tells everyone each detail of their medical challenges, photos of every meal, how many kilometres they walked that day, etc. Let’s leave some things for just the ones we’re closest to, and spare the rest all the gory details. Otherwise I’m not going to follow you.

Found out

the loml & his partner broke up & it seems they might have even been sending each other nasty messages on here, based on revealing details. I'm not happy about this. I was happy for him when it seemed that he had found his happy ever after. And then they had a child so it really seemed like a happy ever after, though she was quite pregnant when they got married, so maybe it was an out-of-necessity marriage. Hopefully they can fix things. I'm not hoping for a chance with him as I feel like there is probably too much age difference between us.
