You just have to make your mind up about it. Making up my mind? I feel the way I feel.

My mother, handicapped as she was, has lived a very enjoyable life for the most part since she was 39. She lived near sisters and children, but even if she didn't, she belonged to clubs, and socialized a lot. This has nothing to do with my experience or feelings.

She was fortunate; this is not my experience.

Not necessarily; there is no way to know that. We cannot speak for others' feelings and thoughts.

I realize that a lot of people aren't capable of hearing and validating feelings.

That is what I needed....someone who could relate.
