Yeah, our minds always seem to focus on the one thing that's going wrong,
and ignoring the literal millions of things that are going right.
Nature of the beast. But a clue on how to tame it.
Plus, we don't get to see "the big picture," only our little slice. ;-)

>Vcat writ:? Really neat memories.? What a great childhood.

Ya know, I have always thought of my childhood as being horrible.? When I
have?most memories of my childhood? and my family it usually includes some
form of abuse or me trying?desperately to find sanity?in an insane
world.??And, I've always been angry about that... cheated... sad.

After reading Vcat's post, looking back I have many, many wonderful
memories.? Yes, I may?have stayed out of doors or at the barn a lot more due
to the fact that I was avoiding the constant drama?within my family and
home, but ... the silver lining of all that is that I developed a love of
the outdoors & wonderlust; an appreciation of animals & nature; and through
reading tons of books I developed a much different psyche and thought
process.? Perhaps this was why I was so disconnected from my family.? Where
they had elected to stay in those fights and conflicts... I chose not to
be..... and became a much different person than they.?

What an epiphany.....
