"The fact that scammers can trace you through your IP address (which they can obtain from your email) should mandate that no one of us should ever go "off site" and email any person directly!"

March 2, 2007 I lost my husband and so it has almost been 10 years since his passing.

I am now an empty nester living on my own and it sucks! No one to talk to no one to love no one to encourage. I am miserable! I am working tons and I am so exhausted I came to realize I was happier back when and made up mind to find someone new. I joined a new internet sight called meet Where I met multiple men all interested in me. Well long story short I met a man I thought was real and… Continue

I never in a million years pictured myself as a widow with three kids all grown doing their own thing and me being a single person waiting for her kids to invite her to have fun with them. My sister is talking about keeping her house in Virginia as a summer home. She talks about her work and things going on with her family. I envy her. My oldest sister gets mad at me and last minute organized a get together with my sisters up north and basically rubs it in my face talking on Facebook about how much fun they had. I am envious of her because I can't seem to forgive my sisters up there and hold a civil conversation with them without them pointing out some flaw of mine that apparently prevents them from being nice to me. I would like to have a nice relationship with them but I never know when my one sister is being nice because she genuinely means to be nice and when it's forced to keep the peace. Well I say that but I think I do know and the name of the game then becomes figure out what just set her off and try to avoid it and by all means don't call a spade a spade and talk about it because that would be a healthy adult way to deal with it. The other one just doesn't want to hear anything unless it is I am sorry you are right life fucking sucks and I am the only one to blame for it fucking sucking because all my decisions have been a total fucking disaster. No one else is to blame because no one else is ever selfish or makes bad choices or gives erroneous incomplete or bad information or advice. Yet she isn't the one who moved away from home, got married, is now widowed, and having to live alone because of her choices and I'd faced daily with the truth that life fucking sucks and is not fair and intact blames no one but herself for her circumstances. Why wouldn't I want to go to a reunion where my sisters angrily remind me of these things because they are pissed off that I moved away and they didn't. You know I avoid these encounters mostly on purpose because who wants to have that shit forced down your throat when you have been living it 24 / 7 as if I owe them an apology. But I gather from past conversations that is exactly what they feel I owe them and it makes no sense to me. It has never made any sense to me why people feel like you owe it to them to follow their advice and when you don't they act all hurt and self righteous when things don't turn out for you how you hoped because you refused their seemingly "wise" advice. So I guess I am waiting and looking for an opportunity where/when nothing they say or could say would remotely ruffle my feathers or get under my skin. At which point they are left wondering why they wasted so much time being assholes that spoke so unkindly about me behind my back and to my face. I want them to feel the burn of not having been nicer to me.

Today is June 28th. I am not feeling well. I have been fighting off depression with my coming move. My first time completely alone in my entire life, and yet I can't seem to cry right now. I guess because it doesn't seem real yet. I hope I will be able to ball like a baby my first night in my new place. That survival instinct almost boardering Pride seems to be fueling an internal stubbornness to show the world it hasn't succeeded pummeling me into dust. How can one feel sorry for themselves and cry while demonstrating such strength. I don't know, but I am hoping this shit gets easier and I make some good choices along the way that will change things for the better.
