Happy thanksgiving

Whyamisoawful posted 11/23/2018 00:14 AM

I just want to wish everyone here on the Wayward forum a happy thanksgiving. No matter what we’re feeling, no matter what we’re going through right now (our faults) I want you to know there ARE things to be thankful for. I encourage you to list them to yourself. This will show you that no matter the outcome of your current situation you WILL be okay! :) we will all be okay and today I am grateful in knowing that!! Gobble gobble!

Hey there Whyamisoawful,

Thank you for the well-wishing. I actually struggled yesterday with feeling anything, to be honest. The holidays always make me feel kind of numb and bleak and while gratitude is something I practice every day, when it comes to gratitude on demand like on Thanksgiving I find that I struggle being able to do it authentically.

So here it is the day after Thanksgiving and I'm gonna give it a go.

I'm grateful for the teachers who blazed the trail before me and left guideposts to show me the way.

I'm grateful for having food and shelter.

I'm grateful for having people in my life that care about what happens to me, especially my BS.

I'm grateful for the beauty that exists in the world and the senses I have to perceive it.

To the whole SI community, may you be safe. May you be healthy. May you be happy. May you be at peace.

Best to everyone from an ever EvolvingSoul.

As a BS I'm posting here to say first of all, I'm thankful for the power of change and redemption. I loved my fWW when the adulteries were current events and I love her today, 25 years later as well.

But I love and am very thankful for the changes she has made and that Christ has made in her as well.

I will also say that on a more temporal note, I am thankful that I was too busy having a really good Thanksgiving Day this year to lurk on here and post on this here thread.

There have been many other years where that would NOT have been the case at all, unfortunately, but we've been reclaiming holidays as best we can, and it's working, thankfully!

I am also thankful for truth and honesty and mercy and a great many other things which make it possible to rebuild and do what needs doing in relationships and life, in spite of all the other dark and ugly things in the souls of every one of us that stand against such hopes and efforts.

And I'm thankful for empathy as well. Not just for waywards towards their betrayed spouses...but for the betrayeds towards their waywards (or former waywards, as the case may be) as well...

In short, I'm thankful to simply feel thankful on Thanksgiving this year...still working on that "Happy" business end of that expression however...
