that what i do will never be enough or interpreted as valuable to the person i look up to most. and that it is likely he will die before the relationship is reconciled (which seems more impossible by the day).

My internal conflicts. Most epic at the moment is my decision to join the USMC.

Hurts my heart, hurts my head. Gah.

I’m trying to make peace with the fact that putting my life on hold for my family was indeed the best decision.
I’m resentful and its so hard now, but I know that in the long run,
well, I just could never be happy turning my back on my family.

it’s just a matter of remembering that fact, I suppose.
that this isn’t self sacrifice, I’m doing what is most important to me.

I’m very happy to say that I have made peace with myself. That includes the fact that I will always need those meds, too. :)

It used to be that no matter how many times I re-lived the past in my mind I will never be able to step back and prevent tragedies. Accepting this allowed me to find new love and establish a life I never dreamed possible.

Today it is knowing that work will always be interrupted as long as the kids are at home. I am adapting my work hours to school hours and learning not to resent having to walk away from the easel when I am at the peak of creativity. But it is like being in the middle of passionate lovemaking and being put in a cold shower.
