no "on" switch

but i'm working on:

   - focus on the positive, try not to fall prey to the negative thoughts

   - act submissive, even if i don't feel it.

  2. Sometimes it works for me and sometimes...well, it just works for him and I endure.

    Best of luck

    1. I think he and i are both enduring right now - but the option is to quit - and we don't want that. Thank you.

    1. I am very good at assuming the worst - focusing on not giving in to that is helping some. I wish i did have answers i could share. I hope things get easier for you soon.

  4. perhaps your on switch is more like a dimmer and you are slowly turning it up. Getting brighter a little at a time as opposed to all on at once.

    1. thank you - that is a really nice way of thinking about it - and i can see it getting a little brighter, which helps.

  6. That's a great plan! Sometimes the act of submitting, especially when I'd rather do anything else in the world but, sort of resets me and I end up feeling submissive in the process. Plus I think you get bonus points for acting submissive when you don't feel it.

    1. i think you are absolutely right - the process has to start soemwhere- and if if isn't in my mind - the actions can help. Maybe you could hint to my husband about the bonus points...

  8. Oh...But there has to be an "on switch" I have a rather easily tripped "off switch" so surely there is an on one somewhere?
    I like the whole "dimmer" idea...

    Hope your switch ends up back where you want it to e soon!

    1. I like the dimmer idea too. Somehow it's taking the lights a long time this time. Maybe for you there really is a switch - once the life things come back to earth. I hope so anyhow.

  9. Seems like several of you are in this mood right now. I wonder if it's the weather or something? Is it winter where you all are? Or is it just too much life stress?

    1. It does seem that way - doesn't it. It is in fact winter - although the days are getting longer now. February is always fairly dark, but spring comes each year. Thanks.

    1. thanks Jake. I believe they will - i think - i at least - am working on trying to see how to go with the changes, the parts that are a little different now. I suppose growth is sometimes messy.
