his depression and negativity is contagious. it consumes me, eats me up. i can't fight it. he won't let me. it's killing me, it's killing him, it's killing us. i can't take what i did away, but i can't make him forget. he won't stop thinking about it. it overwhelms him. such pain, such sorrow, such madness...

Aw sweetie.... {{{{hugs}}}}}

Have you thought about seeing a counselor? Sometimes talking about things with a neutral third party is easier, especially a professional. Of course, it only works if you BOTH go. That's the best thing I can think of right now. If you're willing to put up one hell of a fight, it's got to be mediated; otherwise one or both of you may do something you will truly, honestly regret and there will be no going back. Please think about it, dear heart. You both deserve it. I'm sending positive energy your way.

oh pumpkin it makes me so sad to hear you like this. you deserve happiness. if it is mean't to be it will work itself out. my last girlfriend and i had so many troubles. so many. it was the most unhealthy situation i have ever encountered. i broke up with her and regretted it everyday for a year. we got back together for 2 days and i realized why it couldn't work. i couldn't stand to be near her anymore. sometimes you just have to accept it. however, i have read such wonderful things about you and chris and i think they surpass any difficulty you are experiencing right now. you will work through it if you are supposed to. patience and communication. it is hard when the other person won't listen to how you are feeling but sometimes the time just isn't right.

here's to great weekends. chris and i went to the beach with my mom and my sister, and it was great. all of the shit that we've been dealing with seemed to be forgotten. chris unsuccessfully tried to get my mom drunk, my mom told chris to take out his "nipple doo-dads", and chris and i did a lot of snuggling. it was...

sometimes i really wish that i could have selective control over my emotions. you know, enjoying the ones you want to and shutting off the ones you wish you weren't feeling because it makes everything so much more confusing than life already is.
chris and i have continued our long talks and worked everything out and i've explained to him how i feel...

Hey there,

I read your original entry about feelings for old bf emerging but I didnt have time to respond then. I had many thoughts and advice that I wanted to share but most of them were about how not to freak out too much and that things will work out no matter who you end up with.

The thought I have for you today is hard to put into words... it was inspired by a scifi book set in Isaac Asimov's galactic empire it wasnt written by Asimov himself called "Pyschoihistorical Crisis" . In it the all humans in the galaxy uses machines or computer like devices to enhance their intelligence memory etc and when they take them off they lose alot of their memories and they become more animal like or primal easily distracted and overwhelmed with color, sense of touch but you made me think about it because without the device they cant control their emotional reactions because the device cant regulate input and dampen emotional responses etc.

Anyways In the book they try to explain a theory about stasis and why things go out of whack and how it spreads so quickly and they relate it to human learning and how there is an edge or boundary in our psyche between what we know and feel comfortable with, and what we dont know and fear.

That interpaly between these two regions is how we learn. Gradually we expand our region of known until what was scary becomes explained and no longer generates fear.

Sometimes the boundary leaps dramatically and seems to explode for no appearent reason but when looked at closely it seems to work sort of like an a earthquake. A fault line system can takes centruies to develop an earthquake slowly but the results are a dramatic, even catostrophic. But when the previously stable and static system has its boundary or faults move then it releases the energy contained and whammo world truns upside down.

So my theory is your feelings of being upside down etc is a result of how much energy you have invested in your relationship and how important it is to you and seeing your old flame is the straw that broke the camels back so to speak that tipped your balance point and released any built up tensions in your relationship that were already developing.

For instance your reservations about Chris's pot use isnt new. But when the balance tipped it seems like it might have been more a problem for you than you were willing to admit before. That seeing your old bf and him telling you about his feelings you were confronted with a real or imagined choice between a chronic pot smoker and (I am assuming) one who isnt.

Seems you have determined that returning to your old flame isnt what you want or need, right now anyways, although feelings for him remain.

My convoluted advice summed up would be "Do whatever makes you happy"

Who would want you to stay with together with them even if because of it you were unhappy? and if Chris loves you in the way I think he does he would probably say the same thing after thinking about it and getting past any hurt feelings. "to just do what you must to be happy no matter what."

Of course the trouble is finding out what it takes to be happy. That is where the school distance thing may actually help to sort these feelings and intergrate them into your new world view.

tiamat:

i am going to be in the same predicament as you and chris soon. frown let's cuddle
i love the new picture!

for the last few days i've felt like i've been sitting in a daze watching myself fuck up my life and not being able to do anything about it. it's like my head is spinning non-stop and i'm going insane. since last night i feel a lot better about things though.

first of all, thank you guys so much for all...

Sweetie, I've been missing you oh so much.
Now I can read the journals again.
I'm glad things are starting to look up for you...
It's so good that you managed to really talk about it...
Have you been swimming yet?
I will surely invite you to the next pancake party I am holding in the rivershore, under the red-and-yellow trees.
I can't draw well, either, it's just for fun. But I'd love to draw you one day.
I love me some smelly Shelley. kisskissxoxoxoxo

foucault:

hey ...

thanks for the "happy birthday." Sad that I haven't looked at my profile since July 17. Anyway, I don't know you, but it was awfully nice of you to come by to see me smile

As for your messy feelings....well, I'd say just wait and see how you feel in a week or two. Sometimes when someone comes back into your life it can be a real emotional shock. You need to wait until things settle down inside your head before you start to turn around and question everything that you're doing. And then, if it turns out that you do need a change, well, there's nothing wrong with doing what's right for you, as long as you're honest with yourself and with others.
