I don’t want to grow, preserve, and live like I won’t be able to go to the grocery store. I want to farm to create really great food to share with my family. We broke through the fear of “what if” and bought a truck.

I want to be loved again but not right now and also RIGHT NOW, but exactly how I want it

For a long time, I was better. Maybe it was the counseling. Or the meds. Or the cocoon of safety my family provided me. Maybe it was the daily run in the middle of summer in Texas, when the heat lanced all feelings straight from the wound. Maybe it was the job I couldn’t wait to start. Whatever it was, it didn’t matter because I was better.

We all want the same thing: simply to be valued by somebody else

Keywords: {0}

This survival mode explains why I get angry, anxious, or sad when I feel less valued.  The limbic part of my brain worries I may get kicked out of my protective and be lunch.  Right or wrong, just the perception of being devalued activates our ancient, irrational, emotional, and often impulsive response.  We worry we will be lunch.
