Learning from despair

Friend had a great posting here (posting 11227) about learning when we are at the valleys of despair. For so many years I have been in love with someone I cannot be with....its very painful and keeps me down so much and I cry often in despair....but I have learned to respect others pain and grief, I have learned that material things are not important. I have come to appreciate the meaning of love and understand the suffereing of people. I have learned that I am not alone and millions of people around the world suffer more than me. I have come to appreciate those people that love me and I am so grateful that they do love me and care over me, everyday I learn more about foregiveness, even though I am in constant pain everyday over the love I cannot be with.

I hear you. I have been where you are and am there now. It never gets easier, in fact each time I think it hurts a little more. Even though it seems impossible and unbelievable, sad even, in time it all passes.

Here, here. I totally agree with all the sentiments expressed here. I don't think I would be the same person today if I had not and still am going through what I have and am experiencing.

Thank you Justaboy for expressing that.

Your posting made me so sad.....

However yes, it is true....
I used to be a real B*tch, who had no time for people.
a real plastic barbie-doll.
I cared about my hair, nails, my body...agh PLEASE!!!!
When I dated a guy i first checked what car he drives.
when i payed at a place, i only paid with R100 notes.......(even though i didnt even have money, i made people believe i did)
So material, so empty.........

Its only when real storms & heartache came on my road that i learned to care bout others......
And to be able to reach out to others.....
I'm happy about all I had to go through to shape me into a better person today.
