Something to Consider.. (Sorry about the length)
    #1564105 - 05/20/03 10:54 PM (14 years, 10 months ago)

(I hope this doesn't sound too "hokey", but, ah well..here goes  :grin:!)
After perusing a lot of the posts in "Support Central", my heart truly goes out to all of you with such problems. Believe me I KNOW what you're going through, and I know that sometimes we can't but feel a little lost and how we can lose ourselves sometimes  :confused:....I truly have "been there-done that"!  :frown: Having said that, I would like to share with you a little prose I found some time ago that has helped me..its not a panacea, and I'm by no means suggesting that it is, but it does sort of remind me of my potential and my place in this universe...I hope it can do the same (and maybe deter some hasty actions) for some of you!

(Max Ehrmann, 1927)

Go placidly amid the noise and the haste, and remember what peace there may be in silence.
As far as possible without surrender be on good terms with all persons.
Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even to the dull and the ignorant, they too have their story.
Avoid loud and aggressive persons, they are vexations to the spirit.

If you compare yourself with others, you may become vain or bitter; for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself.
Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans.
Keep interested in your own career, however humble; it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time.

Exercise caution in your business affairs, for the world is full of trickery.
But let not this blind you to what virtue there is; many persons strive for high ideals, and everywhere life is full of heroism.
Be yourself.

Especially do not feign affection.
Neither be cynical about love; for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment it is as perennial as the grass.
Take kindly the counsel of the years, gracefully surrendering the things of youth.

Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune.
But do not distress yourself with dark imaginings.
Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness.
Beyond a wholesome discipline, be gentle with yourself.
You are a child of the universe, no less than the trees and the stars; you have a right to be here.
And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.

Therefore, be at peace with God, whatever you conceive Him to be.
And whatever your labors and aspirations in the noisy confusion of life, keep peace in your soul.
With all its sham, drudgery and broken dreams; it is still a beautiful world.
Be cheerful.

Strive to be happy.

Peace all.
