This is a tough one. Another Cult Holiday. They/ The Cult love to make the survivors birth another day full of dread. Any way they can torture the survivor, remind them of lessons learned in the cult.
I will be 46 in 4 days. Im shocked that I lived this long. But very grateful. I am proud that I fought against all lessons, programming, teachings in The Cult. They did not break me, make me like them. I am the total opposite. I reach for the Light...they crave the Dark. Im sure my parents were punished for failing to produce expected results. I have and, want NOTHING to do with my parents, entire family.
I hope one day, I will learn to enjoy my birthday. Presently, I cope with this day, and cherish being around those who are kind and care about me. Helps so much.
It is important to "up" your "Self Care" the week leading up to your birthday. This is what works for me:
- Walking the trails
- Sitting in the sun
- Talking with friends
- Spending time with my kitties
- Bubble baths
- Watching funny movies
- Eatting well
- Herbal tea
Find what works for you, and do it often.
Thank you to those of you who support me.
