    Being near water. Like a slow-moving river or something. Listening to music. Coloring (ha!). Hm. I think actually a lot of the things I do are to maximize peaceful feeling. Walking slowly. Looking at what's around you. Breathing fully. Just let go of thoughts and apprehensions. Sometimes I almost have to shake myself, tell myself that it's going to be okay, or that it's out of my control, or to try to see which aspects of the situation are in my control. It's liberating to realize that you've done all you can do and that the rest is up to fate or at least external circumstances.
    Your kisses, sweeter than honey. But guess what, so is my money.

    I've never thought of that as liberating, but you're right. I can see how letting go of that illusion of control can bring peace. It is like playing tug of war with an immovable object and just letting the rope slip through your ragged, cramped hands.

    I like the sleeping suggestion, but my troubles seem to emerge in my dreams, so I don't always like going to bed. God, dreams are so weird.
    Oooh...paddle-ball! I find that difficult to play though with a Chinese finger cuff...putting them together was a bad idea.


    You might find this to be interesting, if dreams are the problem. I was reading something in Border's about dream control...I don't remember what the book was, but it had very good information about it, and my friend tried it and said it worked for her:

    It seems like you would be in a better position to answer that than I would.

    Why don't you tell me?

    You chose therapy. You ought to know.

    Well since you asked so nicely...

    My best guess is that you can't relate to anyone and have become an Island unto yourself.

    It doesn't seem like you have any respect but for yourself.

    I see no empathy or sympathy in you.

    I find myself asking whether or not Nic has any fruitful relationships in his life at all?
