Just getting caught up with some comments, This is such an incredable sharing experience, and I'm not sure which has been more therapeutic actually sharing the card secrets, or sharing other's secrets in the discussion.
This was better than my regular $150 an hour therapy session!!!! (Maybe I should skip this month's appointment and spend the cash on new beads and findings!!!!!)
I hesitate to say this not knowing the details... but craft supplies have typically done me more good than therapy did, and craftster therapy definitely counts for something
To the sender who worries about having too many aspirations, I often feel the same way, but I know i am slowly beginning to realize that I need to focus on just a few things and then more gets done... I think the problem is choosing what to focus on.
As for killing plants predicting parenting skills I worry about the same thing, because I definitely can't keep a plant alive (I once managed to kill a cactus).
To the person failing, it doesn't make you a bad person at all. I watched quite a few people really struggle with a program (and fail numerous things, and loose scholarships), but when they found something they were passionate about it all changed. For some of them it was another program, for some of them it was something entirely different.
To the sender who showed her boyfriend her cards, I hope it went well. I showed mine to my husband and we were able to talk about somethings that we hadn't talked a lot about before. It was really good, and I hope it turned out as well for you.
I can relate to the card about judging bottle feeders, I understand some women can't but than there are those like a former boss of mine who considered feeding babies the biggest waste of her time...
Very Few pictures of childhood--This made me feel really sad. All I can say is cherish the ones you have, and your memories, and your current existing family it's never too late to create some "Kodak moments". (I hope your mom is doing better now)
Fundamentalist vs. Feminist: It can be so hard to find a place in this world, especially when you live at the collision point of two seemingly different ideologies. Do what you can to carve your own path, because as others have said that really is what feminism is about.
To the secret sender who wants to be a virgin at marrage. I wish you the best of luck (and will power, lots of will power). It can be tough, but if you feel it's important it will be worth it.
To the sender who's scared it's too late to do anything about global warming: ME TOO
"Watching you play restores my faith in humanity" Can I steal your secret. I love this, and am often in need of some faith restoring, but so often I meet people's children (none of my own yet) and I am reminded why this world is worth saving.
To the stay at home mom who rarely cooks or cleans: just as long as you're not riddled with guilt than this doesn't need to be a secret. My mom was a stay at home mom, and the house was often a mess and we ate Kraft Dinner, but we were well loved and that is really what matters.
No date for the prom? Go anyways, and have fun with your friends. That's what it's really about. I didn't have a date for mine, and I had far more fun just hanging out with my friends than most of the people I knew with dates.
To the sender who can't control her temper, me too, maybe we can work on this one together...
"You too should not be together" --now if only we could stand up and scream this so people would listen.
And no I often don't shave my legs regardless of the season (there are better things to do with my time, and anyways it's just more of a treat this way when I do shave)
sorry for the long post... I'll try not to get so far behind again
