Hi Gang! First let me say I have recieved a good number of responses to a Discussion Board Topic.."Young Single Survivors".. keep up the good work everyone by posting your comments and sending emails to the the Administrators! Thanks for your support!...
Now... I have read many posts from men and women about feeling guilty for wanting to share life with a special someone. They have family. They have friends. So why arent they satified.. why do they feel like they are missing out? Well, First of all... if all of us were content with family and friends... not many people would get married and not many children born, and this whole cylce would probably end quickly!.. But we were made to desire that special person. It starts with the desire to love someone and want to share life with someone.. then we meet that special someone and fall in love, and on and on..... It is normal. It is the way we were created by God. So, dont feel guilty about missing that someone. However, it is also good to have the mind set that we WANT that special someone... but we dont NEED that special someone. Thats the confusion I think. Also... for some reason, we put on ourselves, or we let others put on us... that since we had cancer... we are supposed to act and live like Pure Models of Right. Cancer did not change our humanity or take our strengths or weaknesses. We are still fallable humans. We all have strengths and we all have weaknesses. And we all have power within us to help each other... and we all have gifts to offer to those in our little corner of the world. So, toss those guilty feelings out the window! Those feelings can do us NO good!
Have a great day everyone!
