Home Again


Sometimes I marvel at the effects of the internet on our lives today.  Sometimes, in my darker moments, I question whether the relationships we make on the internet are as real as we believe.  Events in my life over the past few weeks have removed that doubt and shown me that cyber-friendships can be as real as those in the flesh.

Thank you all for the kindness and support shared in your comments to my last post.  I was away from home and reeling.  I logged on here and posted what was in my heart, and you didn't let me down and responded.  And I realized I wasn't as far away from home as I thought.

As I said in the last post, my parents' rejection shakes me to my core.  As much as I reject their concept of me, part of me cannot shake it completely, and it remains as my own doubt about my character, my heart, and my worth.

When you stepped up with understanding and reassurance and even shared some of your own painful experiences, it meant the world to me.

I'm back home now.  Both with my cyber-friends and my real family.  And I thank you from the bottom of my heart.

"Home is where the heart is," might be a bit of a cliche, but honestly, I'm not sure it could be any truer. You take care of your family...that's a given. But I've learned in life that you have to take care of you. Have a great evening, dear.

The mom was so harsh growing up that my friends WERE my family.
I was lucky to have a great dad though.
Glad you're back

Welcome home! Instead of clicking your heels three times, just click your mouse and here we are! There's no place like home!

I'm glad you're back! I have a crazy thought that I'm closer to my cyber-friends than my own neighbors..
