(((((((((((SV)))))))))))))))

I think the Point of Life is different for everyone. I tell myself that the only way I will ever be happy is have the perfect job. I go on job interviews and then beat myself up when I don't get "the" job. The one that would give me self esteem, wipe out all the bad stuff I've done, had done to me and would make me a happy, happy girl.

Obviously I don't know my true Point of Life. Maybe some people know it right away, you know, the people who are happy with their lives the way they are. The rare ones who don't yen for something that they know they won't get, don't base all their self worth on having it. I know very few people like that, I'm sad to say.

But you know, the people who are struggling to find their purpose in life are the people I like to be around. I can identify with them.

I can also identify with your feeling that you don't belong. SV, you may not feel you belong anywhere in the world, but you do have a place here on babble. You've helped me and others.

I wish I could ease your pain in losing your therapist. I have no answers or ideas, but it has made me realize how lucky I am to have a therapist who can stick it out with me for the long haul. I hope that didn't hurt, I am trying to tell you that your therapy experience is valuable to me in getting through therapy. See, you have a place in the little world of babble and you didn't even know it.

Sleep as long as you need to, may your dreams be of your true point in life. But please wake up, so you can share your dreams with us.

Please email me if you need to. I'll try to check it often in the next few days. Though I tend to drink myself silly on weekends. Bad habit, bad way to cope, but I'm not ready to tackle it.
