    And a Happy Birthday, even if you don't feel in celebratory mood.

    Thank you a lot. I just needed a good cry and I held it in too long. I feel better.

    I found my 40s were a time when I was really hit with a lot of pain from my childhood. The abuse that I thought I had overcome and put behind me decades earlier, snuck up and hit me like a hammer. It was like it was crystal clear all over again. I hear of many 40-somethings going through similar pain and suffering, so I don't think it's all that unusual. I was able to put it in perspective and overcome it again. I hope you can too. Hang in there Speckla. You are stronger and more resilient than you know.

    That was a really thoughtful reply. I hope it's helpful for you, Speck.

    Happy Belated Birthday, Speck!

    I 3rd RCW. I think different birthdays provide "light bulb moments". You either figure something out and gain understanding or are working out an internal conflict. Mine seem to hit on 1's or 9's. Big hugs to you. A release can be the best.
    When I hear terms like "hipster" I think, who told cliques they could leave high school??

    Hi Speck, I understand about missing your mom, especially on a birthday. I hope you are feeling calmer and happier today. :toothy2:

    Sorry I missed your birthday. Happy Belated Birthday.

    40 is an enlightening age. I ended a 20 year marriage when I turned 40. You will always miss your mom & there will be times it will hurt more. It can help to cry & get it all out. It can be cleansing. I still sometimes cry & it's been 21 years since my divorce. Hang in there beautiful lady.
    From Michael Berg:

    Every person has a unique connection to the Creator that can never be extinguished, and every person has a great soul that can manifest important things in our world. To make a person feel less than they are because of something inside themselves, be it faith, race, or sexual orientation, is the greatest sin of all."
