don’t know what to say right now…

I’m going to just type and not worry too much about what comes out.  I find myself very scared and lonely right now.  I’m not sure what I would do without my children.  They are both a blessing and a distraction. 

I get irritated so often with their many requests…and feel guilty at night when they are all asleep that I didn’t spend any REAL time with them.  I’m just on edge…missing my old life again…missing friends that I don’t have contact with anymore…missing being a part of the surface world…where fun, money, sex, connecting, and being happy (or trying to be) is called living.  I want that life back…for me as well as Laura.  It can’t be…and that leaves me feeling empty and guilty about the whole damn thing.

Then I realize again that here I am…and I must be here…because…this is where I am.  No choice.  None…check please!

I also hate these sad, pity-filled posts because everyone has problems.  Losing your wife at a young age…with young children…well…that just happens to be mine. 

I’m not ashamed to admit that I’m scared and wierded out by the whole thing.  I also know that I will do what must be done to keep this family happy and strong.

This is so much rambling.  I apologize for that.  I’m trying to think of a lesson…but it escapes me right now.  Screw this whole mess…

growth despite fear…

“One can choose to go back toward safety or forward toward growth. Growth must be chosen again and again; fear must be overcome again and again.”  ~Abraham Maslow

Somehow this reminded me of something I wrote a while ago called “Dreams.”  How great that someone can capture in one sentence what it took me so many to write.  Guess that’s why I’m just a blogger…
