My psychologist said to me this week, "You have the ability to experience such amazing joy which is what also makes you vulnerable to such deep pain." I believe this. Those who can feel one emotion so intensely have the ability to feel others with equal intensity.

I have seen you reaching to get better and slammed back down, but I don't believe it has to be that way or that positive must lead to negative. Lots of people prefer to stay in the misery that is familiar rather than risk change. It's a passive choice, but it is a choice nonetheless. Do you want to choose to not try to make changes and stay unhappy, but safe in its familiarity? Or, do you want to try to go in another direction and risk the unknown? I believe you have the strength and abilities to go in a new direction; trust in your abilities and see yourself through the eyes of those around you (e.g., ta_chuang, ms_ntropy, riverbank, myself, etc.).

I am here for you, whatever way you want/need me to be. I love you.
