I've always gotten my emotional strength from my family, I have to be strong and responsible for them because I am always solving their problems and playing big sister so I have no room to let myself crumble under pressure. Who would they turn for emotional support if I am down?

But then, the "bad guy" ex-boyfriend of mine (the one I spoke about on the other thread), the one that made my life a living hell, yes that one...every time I was down, I would just think about all the horrible things he did and said to me and all the things he said I wouldnt be able to accomplish and that was enough to keep me going. Now, 14 years later, you can imagine who is laughing!!!

He hasnt done much since, meanwhile I have a great husband, job, career, I completed my college education, I got my CPA license and I have traveled half way through the world!! Yeeehaaawww!!

This should appeal to your sensitivity and frigility:

DREAMIN'AGAIN (Jim Croce)
+
Don't you know I had a dream last night
That you were here with me
Lyin' by my side so soft and warm
And we talked a while
And shared a smile
And then we shared the dawn
But when I woke up
Oh, my dream it was gone
+
Don't you know I had a dream last night
And you were here with me
Lyin' by my side so soft and warm
And you said you'd thought it over
You said you were coming home
But when I woke up
Oh, my dream it was gone
+
I'm not the same
Can you blame me
Is it hard to understand
I can't forget
You can't change me
I am not that kind of man
+
Don't you know I had a dream last night
And ev'rything was still
And you were by my side so soft and warm
And I dreamed that we were lovers
In the lemon scented rain
But when I woke up
Oh, I found that again, I had been
Dreamin', dreamin' again
I had been dreamin', dreamin' again

Well, when the chips are down, what picks me up is listening to music or take a walk!!

oh yes-listening to music-always the first option, that and going for a drive-to get away from everyone and everything-so stress relieving driving with some good music!

I always imagine while i'm driving that i can just keep going-and end up where ever-then reality kicks in and i realise i've got work the next day-i've always got work the next day!lol.
