Well, time for some more conversations about understanding how important how we are wired is. How it affects our lives and the lives of others. Let's talk about it.

So, what concerns me is the chaos the thing in the white house and his base is causing. I just don’t see how they can profess to be lovers of the Most High and harbor so much hate. I mean hate and love don’t mix. Maybe they don’t know that.

I had to dig deep and take a close look and frankly I struggle with what I see to this day. All my life I’ve had it pretty easy and I developed an attitude because I had it so easy. A little hardship, I believe, is good for the soul. I’m now glad I caught it even if it happened much later in life. I was honestly above morals. I was all the moral I needed. I don’t think I had a clear understanding of what morality truly is. I was convinced I led an honorable, upstanding life. Roscoe used to tell me I thought to much of myself. He was the only one with the guts to say that to me. I miss Roscoe quite a bit especially now.

This is going to be a good year for me I feel it. The focus is going to be very therapeutic for me. I’m coming out of a deadly depression and I want to thank all of you for being there when I needed you most. I am seeing Amaha for the record and I’m hoping to be a better man this time around. Mason really likes her and told me I better be good to her. If it progresses, I’m certainly going to try. Hurting Mason and ultimately losing her broke me. I thought her and I were forever and I took her for granted. It’s been a hard lesson but I now feel it was a necessary lesson. I know what getting more deeper in touch with myself showed me and I’m just grateful for the opportunity to remake myself and start living a moral life.

I like Amaha and you do right Michael. I know you can. I want you to be happy and she's a really nice lady. I know you can be a really nice man and you deserve a really nice person to love and cherish you. I am happy to hear you are seeing someone and I'm really happy about who that someone is. :cheer: :kiss:

I too have had to do some serious soul searching. Trust me this started when Caleb was alive. All my life I’ve relied on my looks to get me through. I remember Caleb telling me looks fade. He also said beauty was only skin deep but ugly was all the way to the bone. He told me sometimes my ugly overshadowed my beauty. He reminded me he didn’t marry me because of my physical beauty, he felt we had something in common, both being single parents and coming out of very abusive relationships. I know he spoke the truth. He always said he could see the real me. He told me I wore many masks but he could see my core self. I asked Josh what he saw and it took him a minute to respond. He told me he saw a very confused woman struggling with her identity. He doesn’t think I hate Mason but he senses a deep resentment and he made it clear just like Caleb did, he would not feed into it or tolerate any thing like what happened at the last meeting. Like Caleb he adores Mason and I know why. Mason is a very good woman and I wish I could be like her.

Josh has said he does not want to tell me not to see my step mother and my and father, but he is absolutely not comfortable around them and will not join me when I visit which caused a big problem for my parents. He told me it’s time I decided what kind of person I want to be and I think he’s right. I had a talk with my parents over the holiday, I visited them alone as the children where with Caleb’s father who has also expressed how he doesn’t want his grandchildren around my parents. I could tell all of this actually bothered them but they are racist and they are trump supporters and that is driving a wedge between the races, cultures, and families. Deep down I do not share their views. I reminded my father my mother was biracial. I told him I’m not comfortable with anything trump or his administration is doing to our country, to the world. I told them if they are than I will be departing from their lives and living my life in a way that is not hate filled. I am a Gnostic first and far most and we are not a hateful faith. I felt good when I saw my husband and children this evening and told them we would not visit my parents again. The kids were very happy and I can’t say that shocked me. I know I made the right decision because it felt good, it felt right, and I know a peace like I’ve never known.

In light of what is going on in the United States, and let’s face it, we can’t blame it all on the man-child in the white house, the republicans in congress have much to do with what is going on, I think it’s time to look at ourselves and those we have in our circles, all of our circles. I’d like to know just how divided we are in this country. I’d like to know how big and how significant those in the party of trump really is. It’s coming to the point where I absolutely want nothing to do with anyone that man is associated with and I’m sorry, it’s time we stood up and spoke up as tax-payers in this country. I can’t abide anyone who is a part of, in any way, the party of trump. In saying this, I also told Ashley I will have nothing to do with her father or step-mother because of their political affiliation and position. I will not entertain the devil or any of his demon followers. I am doing my best to walk a good righteous walk and that means cleaning house. I’ve let quite a few people know and I made it clear I am very serious. This is serious now and it’s time we all make and take a stand. A firm one because it is the right thing to do.

Yeah, I’m your friend Ashley but you folks are intolerable at this point. I’m not going to just accept it anymore because it’s causing this country to much. I really wish everyone in the party of trump would just combust, cleansing the hate out of out nation and allow us to heal and grow in the right direction. Again, like Ebony said, it’s several people we have cut ties with after the first for articles this year. It’s time to clean up inside and outside our personal houses. I don’t harbor any hate and I will not tolerate anyone who does. I honestly think anyone who supports the party of trump, as Ebony calls it, lack all kinds of morals and they don’t know anything about love.

Mark you are right, it’s time we started governing ourselves, taking control of our conduct at all times and if we do what we know is right we can self-govern. I don’t like this need for a leader. Just look at how they treat those they are supposed to lead. It’s all over the world. We don’t need them. We need to govern ourselves.
