truetothecause said:What I do with it is attempt to SHARE that which I've learned....I attempt to SHARE M.E. yet..
In the rooms of RE~covery there is a saying "We keep what we have by giving it away". This I realize has it's inherent dangers when I think of sharing my "pain". I dont' want to give it to anyone and I don't want to keep it. Yet, I sense there is a purpose for the pain I have. What that is I don't know yet. I can only know as I continue to meditate on it I work to "practice what I preach and teach".
seems people Don't want M.E. at least not as I Am. They want M.E. on THEIR TERMS.
So I'm comfronted with another dilemma...I'm tired of journeying from place to place, community to community only to find the same stuff.
Well what I have found personally is that many people expect you to compromise, yet it may never cross their minds to do so themselves. And then you can find yourself in a situation as you described above where you are not free to be authentically you, but the other person is. But if I'm the only one attempting compromise, I tend to walk away. One-sided relationships do nothing but engender anger and resentment, at least on my part.
