Hi Abby!

I agree with you 100%. I am a 57 year old female and it took YEARS for me to figure out that my life had narcissists in it. Once I woke up and figured out their psychology I could spot them a mile away. I am cordial to them, but do not associate anymore. Nowadays, I am on the quest to hook up with people of my frequency! My Soul Tribe. Watch out world, I'm coming!

I was blessed (or cursed lol) with a positive attitude and wake happy as a bird looking for their morning worm everyday. I spread this energy outwards as well. This is why narcissists were so attracted to me. I was clueless about personal boundaries since my parents taught me nothing and tossed me out into society like that. I learned everything through the school of knocks. I have no regrets. I am VERY thankful to God/Universe, because He's always protected me, allowed me to learn my lessons, but protected me.

Thanks for your time and energy.

Love ya!!

Blessings Abby. As an American, the goals are said to be Life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness? Why was the word pursuit used? Should it have been hairsuit? Life, liberty and the hairsuit of happiness? Shirley, I jest. I have never been to a psychoanalyst, and have never even spelled it till just now. But seeing life more as a, how did you put it, an exploration, growth. That does give one a more tangible thing to strive for, growth, emotional growth. I think I was 30 before someone in my life asked me how I felt about x or y thing. I said (because I was raised this way) that how I felt did not matter, x or y was gonna happen anyway. Then the friend said the magic words, 'but how you feel about it will affect you and so it's worth considering your own feelings in the matter'. Those were some life changing words for me, still are. How I feel matters, is worth taking note of. That we are not simply lumps of clay, automatons. Or at least should strive not to be so lifeless, to have self reflection. And that indeed may be how we got to this place, where so many in power have no ability to be self reflective or trust their inner guidance, their emotions, their morals. Back to the Declaration of Independance (as I talk to a Euro person, yes!) , the 'life' part is quickly becoming debatable, liberty a daily contemplation for me. The liberty to work till I am 80, out of need, with retirements going up in smoke like the dioxin fire in Ohio, and life span drastically reduced. But to be navigating this whole debacle from the perspective of growth, or change, and my understanding of it, heavy though it is, at least tethers me to some degree, sorting out a bad mess still possible, personally, even if happiness is not.

Balance between head and heart - some of the most difficult things in life are the ones that grow us the most but if we feel too 'uncomfortable' around them then we can just decide not to do them and we miss out on opportunity. Snowflakes melt in the slightest warmth, they are the ones putting us into the saucepan... There's an animation in that somewhere, or at least a meme anyway. Thanks for the comment x
