"I don't want a companion to "complete" me."

@njny: P.S. Yours were "learning experiences." Why we have to go through them? I think it prepares us for the good so that we will recognize the good when it appears. I admire your tenacity in taking life after that experience on your own terms. Only strong women can hang in their until the right situation presents itself and not sell out. Sometimes people think we're vulnerable and willing to compromise. To those people, I say fuck you! There is a light at the end of the tunnel....it does get better. The thing is, we have to stay strong until it does. I have mad respect for you.

@njny: I can say in all honesty that during these last few years when I had to downsize my life tremendously, I was NEVER lonely. My premium cable was my companion. I've said this numerous times before. I fought my way out of a pit and many in these forums reached out and lifted me up w/o even knowing it and I thank God that I am in a better place now in numerous ways. I don't want a companion to "complete" me. I am good by myself. If someone can't enhance my life and me theirs, we don't belong together.

paraphrasing something i said to a relative quite some years ago when she was complaining that she felt lonely and wanted a BF.

you can be lonely with anyone, you can be lonely with a husband or wife, you can be lonely in the middle of one of the best parties in your lifetime. finding someone else to "fix" lonely won't work. first you have to like your own company and be comfortable, even happy, being alone. *then* it's okay to find someone else, or better yet, let them find you--and make sure they fit.

too bad i forgot my own advice about "fit"--that's okay, life doesn't come with an instruction manual so all detours and wrong turns eventually get corrected if we are paying attention.

September 2015 edition of Awakenings Magazine (the free mag) page 23: I love this magazine it's heavily geared toward holistic living and yoga. I found the following interesting: "Look Inward Instead of to Others" ......."Happiness is an inside job. Joy, love and inspired living are ours for the taking --all we must do is choose."

After watching the PBS documentary on Althea Gibson, her biography is on my list of books to read and I hope to have it before I go on vacation.

Wikipedia says "The Republic of Liberia, formerly a colony of the American Colonization Society (ACS) declared its independence on July 26, 1847. The United States finally accepted and recognized Liberia's Independence on February 5, 1862."

It's feasible the people enslaved in the land that called itself Liberia for 15 years before the U.S. recognized it, might have truly remembered it if they were old enough and not removed from it before July 26, 1847. By the time the U.S. Civil War ended, the Republic of Liberia had been in existence only about 18 years.

I'm sure they couldn't recall Liberia, since it didn't exist when they lived there.

"Distracted " by Maggie Jackson. It is about the effects of technology on human behaviors and our future. It is a re-read for me. Every been on an elevator or train and observe how everyone's face is stuck in some kind of device. People don'teven speak in passing anymore.
