Like a mother.

I’m exhausted. The iffing (intermittent fasting) went well. I made it until 6:45 PM, which is 22.25 hours overall (I think). But that aside, I unwisely chose to spend the day with my mother. The problem is that, having not seen her since much earlier this year, I “forgot” how odious she can be. AndContinue reading “Like a mother.”

What a tangled web we weave…

I’m feeling very discouraged after the therapy session from hell yesterday. I always tell the therapist I want/need EMDR, and the therapist always becomes curious about my past and wants to do talk therapy. The last time this happened, we had the therapist who wound up accusing me of being suicidical when I was, inContinue reading “What a tangled web we weave…”

Bragadocious and social media likes.

Dear Amy: A few years ago, my girlfriend’s friend told her that I was hitting on her. My girlfriend asked her what I did to make her feel that way, she said, “He asked me questions, and when I answered them he followed up with questions about my answers.” My girlfriend said, “How is thatContinue reading “Bragadocious and social media likes.”

Paper as a metaphor!

Dear Amy: I am a single male in my early 30s. After law school, I met “Judith,” and we became best friends. Judith and I were both competitive athletes in the same sport, the same age and knew some of the same people. The friendship was always strictly platonic. Honestly, I considered her my bestContinue reading “Paper as a metaphor!”

Life’s peachy!

I’ve been enjoying writing my memoirs. I think they might even be publishable, since there’s so much scandal and intrigue to my life. I’ve been writing about the early years when we lived in my first house from birth to age seven. That was a very nice period in my life, and writing about itContinue reading “Life’s peachy!”

Whining and phoning it in.

Dear Amy: My adult middle child and I struggled during my parenting years. I always connected with her older brother and younger sister more easily than with her. I had no idea how much this hurt her until she moved out. Once during a conversation, she shared many, many incidents showing a lack of affection duringContinue reading “Whining and phoning it in.”

The therapy’s going great!

TRIGGER WARNING: PHYSICAL ABUSE AND DISCUSSIONS OF CHILDHOOD SEXUALITY/FETISHES (but in the context of my life, since I’m obviously not interested in exploiting children…) So, I went to therapy yesterday. The therapist thinks that I have some form of early-childhood trauma from before the age of three. She  bases this on the fact that IContinue reading “The therapy’s going great!”

Deception.

DEAR HARRIETTE: I have a 4-month-old daughter with a woman I never dated exclusively but was hanging out with for a while. When she told me she was pregnant, I asked about any other men, and she said there was no one else. I accepted that, and my family and I stood by her theContinue reading “Deception.”

The Tower’s foundation matters!

I have amazing news. I think I’ve done it! I’ve finally reached the pinnacle of valuing myself. And I’ve been pushing myself so hard to get here that I really want to celebrate. I think it’s what I came into this lifetime to master–self-value–so praise God! I guess I can spend the rest of thisContinue reading “The Tower’s foundation matters!”
