Lumpy oatmeal makes me crazy!
A little tough love is always good and I admire Lauren for putting it out like she saw it. Honestly, I see that you are making mistakes too, but I am not in your shoes - and, God knows, I have made my share of mistakes too. I do not want to see you build upon the mistakes that you have made already, and I am hoping in time that you will find a way to use your talent in a productive manner.
I agree with John (Huan Yi) - you should write. You have stories to tell that many of us will never see - you have poetic talent that amazes me. I do hope that you are keeping a journal through all this time. There is a book in your mistakes - and there is a book in the aspects of your life that are not mistakes. We only are hearing about the upheaval right now. We'll hear about the calm again in time.
I, for one, would worry if you did not post updates. I don't email you much one-on-one and I choose to read your updates. Please, don't stop them
Again, I appreciate all the posts to you on this thread. Yes, there are times that I want to shake you and say .. stop the madness! But, darlin', I am only looking through a one-way mirror - I don't see the entire picture.
I think of you.
