After a few weeks on this e-forum I feel like I have already been through the mill with my self-composure being in tatters! The question now is whether I will still respect myself all tattered, scarred and with a few missing teeth? My hope is that I will love myself even more for it!
You are doing just fine, my friend, by just leaping into the fray and learning to fight for all you are worth! BUT, my friend, for all you lamenting there is nothing wrong with you! It is only your self-importance that has become slightly shabby! <ebwg>
