Art Heals - Dylusions Journal Page

Hi all,

Quick post from me today.  There are some people in my life who I love more than I can even express... and they are treating each other with such hatred, contempt, cruelty and disdain.  And it's been going on for far too long. If there was an ounce of empathy for the other's perspective it could all be so much better.  It's making me physically ill to watch, knowing that there is little if anything I can do to help.  This journal page is my attempt to vent my frustration and anger at the situation.

Here's to better days ahead... I hope...

Thank you for a page that is not all sunny and happy. I tire of those. I need REAL feelings and you have shared them.

Thank you.

Wow. That really bites, sitting on the sidelines. Hope that soon they'll come to their senses.
Great page! It feels great to vent and journal pages are perfect "listeners".

Take care!

I hear you Ellen, loud and clear. Unfortunately a lot of us have gone thru or going thru the same thing (not that its supposed to make you feel better) and it hurts, but you have to move on. Usually, it is after someone has died and they fight over "things", money, etc. Loving people lose their senses and cant see past their noses. Good luck, feel better. Sue

Ellen....this journal page is such a wonderful way to vent such a frustrating situation! You may not be able to do anything to fix the people you were referring to in your write up but at least you were able to vent your frustration....and, if it's any consolation, this post was perfect for me to see RIGHT NOW! Thank you! <3 Candy
