    You thought it was about regular sex/comfort but then thought what? That it was more? Then you got to feel heart broekn and had psychosomatic illness?

    Thought this was really interesting and inspiring but I want to know more
    All for ourselves, and nothing for other people, seems, in every age of the world, to have been the vile maxim of the masters of mankind.

    whether or not you credit psychoanalysis itself, the fact remains that we all must, to the greatest extent possible, understand one another's minds as our own; the very survival of humanity has always depended on it. - Open Culture

    I was thinking broadly on these lines recently whilst staring at the stars late at night .. Sometimes we don't things to end, maybe due to uncertainty, maybe because it doesn't feel right but ultimately after the clouds have lifted you start to appreciate all that's happened. New opportunities come your way that you never dreamt of pursuing previously and you have a different outlook on life ..

    Whilst staring at the stars i asked myself if things hadn't of changed and my life hadn't taken a different course, would i of been happy? The answer was no, so i thank the powers that be that helped me to move to a place where i can be authentic to myself.

    How did things change for you?
    Yes and for the better.
