I am not leaving this bloody keyboard and screen until I know your safely asleep, even if I have to sit here all bloody night.
Don't worry I'll be fine but enough love to you for even saying and doing that

its just hard to the see the ight at the end of the tunnel when you become a one track mind just thinking of suicide and self harming

i do pray to Allah for help guidance and protection
(I'm being serious now and not trying to make you smile)

I live by a simple rule - the past has no place in my thoughts after nightfall...because no good ever comes of it.

I mentally pack up bad memories in a rucksack and visualise tying the top, taking it off my back and putting it outside the door. I can palpably feel the weight come off of my shoulders.

Put it all away - it can do no good tonight when you are warm and safe and ready to sleep :hug: xx

True say, it's excess baggage that I shouldn't be holding. I need to learn to let go

Not only have you got killer taste in music, you've got a wicked sense of humour as well @Lunar Lady. You make me smile. :)

Your thoughts stand between you and a delicious sleep.

Give your mind the commands - it's you in control - "Not now. I'm resting and content."

By focusing on your surroundings and sensations, those thoughts are dismissed - they have

been replaced by your focus on NOW. xx

So you mean focus on the here and now?

Yep - and I want details.

Describe where you are - the room - what you can hear.

Describe every detail so the Hobo rail rider and I can picture you as clearly as seeing you on television.

You've got ten minutes to paint us a vivid picture of your now. In that time, I'll make a cup of

coffee...and Parayana will probably jump on a train somewhere....

That's quite a big ask though.

Unloading complex things isn't as easy as just 'letting go'.

Although I don't know full story as I joined in last page and posting about other things,

I think you shouldn't be so hard on yourself.

Complex things not solved easily, otherwise wouldn't be called complex.

I would just take it easy tonight :)

Mayfair, as a meditator, I will have to disagree with you, it requires training but it is really that simple. To paraphrase Mooji - "Your thoughts are like a friend that when you go out on the town with them you come home in a police car!".

Rofl, time for coffee. My old support worker used to say the title of my autobiography should be Hashish, Hobos, Hookers and Hackers. Lol. :D

I'll sing - as a musical interlude.

I've battled demons that won't let me sleep
Called to the sea but she abandoned me
But I won't never give up, no, never give up, no, no
No, I won't never give up, no, never give up, no, no


Urgh! Out of tune....I'll let Sia take over


(the lyrics are on topic ;))
