"I composed a beautiful letter to you in the sleepless nightmare hours of the night, and it has all gone: I just miss you, in a quite simple desperate human way."

Having a rough time of it right now?

I read these, and wish I could do *something* for you, and know that there's really nothing at all I can do.

Oh, I'm just lame I guess. I shouldn't let things have such an impact on me - not a big deal. Sometimes the little squeaky parts escape their boxes. I don't really *need* anything, other than to toughen up and stronger locks ;)

Thank you very much for your kind thoughts - they are appreciated.

Hope you had a nice weekend.

I think we can agree that there's no survival need, in the Mazlow's Hierarchy of Needs sense, while there's still a certain longing having to do with one of his higher order social needs. We can avoid quibbling about the word "need" here and still acknowledge that you're having some emotional pain, and that recognizing it, and reaching out to you, is no great weakness.

eh - I shouldn't have any emotional pain either, I think. There are certainly people in the world with much larger and more significant problems then not being appreciated, hmmm?

But at any rate I've discovered the cure - staring at one's resume is always a good dose of reality.

It's not a game of Misery Poker. It's not as if only the person with the greatest reason for feeling emotional pain gets to feel it. Emotional pain doesn't work like that.

Yeah, it's good to give yourself reality checks, and to try to see things in perspective. But you do have a legitimate reason to grieve. You've lost a Relationship you invested a lot into, and it just hurts. It will hurt for some time to come yet, and your little posts are obviously helping you to work through it. So make them, and I'll sit here and type little comments to them and wish that I could hug you to let you know I do understand even if I can't help.

I am sorry things have been so difficult lately. You deserve better
