I am seeking to be a thriving highly sensitive intuitive wife & mother. Learning to Know Thyself and to connect with the people who remind me of who I am. I want to set healthy boundaries and teach others to do the same. Let’s connect HSPs and learn how to THRIVE, not to just survive.
We all have so much to be grateful for. If we are living and breathing we have so much to be grateful for. Even though life brings so many challenges, trials, and tribulations, if we focus on the good things in life–life begins anew. Being grateful is not the easy path, negativity has a way of reigning supreme, yet be positive has many rich rewards. Let’s make this day a happy time, focus on the similarities between us instead of harboring ill will towards those that have hurt us. Is it easy? Not at all…but is it impossible, certainly not. Have a wonderful day and soak up the love that surrounds you, even if the only love you see and feel is from yourself…than so be it! My love to each and every soul that reads my words. May you be blessed beyond measure.
How do we restore our marriage? We have been married for 25 + years and we live more like roommates than partners. We have five kids, ages 23, 21, 16, 13, and 10. Four of our kids are still living at home. Three years ago my husband was injured while volunteering for a cancer benefit for kids. He hasn’t been able to work for three years and our finances are in trouble. After being a stay at home mother for 22 years, I went back to college to earn my degree that I believe is so desperately needed for our family to earn a living wage. Jobs are extremely scarce for me currently because there are not a lot of companies that will hire an under skilled woman in my 50s. We are desperate for answers to our situation. I have worked at several menially jobs that pay minimum wage ($7.25/hour), that is not enough to keep us going. I’ve had a few temp jobs that paid $10/hr.
What is keeping us afloat currently is the disability we get for my husband and school grants, scholarships, and loans that I get for school. My husband and I do not have an intimate relationship. We haven’t had sex in over 2 years. We bicker and fight almost everyday because of the stress overload that we are under. It is an absolute wonder that we are still together, and we both want it to work.
