Be Saved From the Beautiful Lies

 

I haven’t posted for a while, and don’t plan to post anymore. I wanted to wind Fish Eye Farm, up with witty and philosophical words.

However, my family has been so outrageously dysfunctional lately, that I chose to just let it go, and take things day by day. ( a “secret to my happiness”, which I will call success.)

I stumbled onto this video. At a moment when I felt so down, I watched it and it gave me the second wind that I need.

I didn’t ask his permission formally to share this, so I hope he doesn’t mind.

I am going to put that on my never ending list of things to do.

I think his information is important. It’s about family dynamics. The bull shit beautiful lies that are told to you as you grow up. That their behavior, the people that are caring for you, is all for you own good.  It can be perpetual, until you become aware.

I value his manner of presentation, straight up and to the point; stating facts, without harsh blame.

If you are a chosen scapegoat, and you have survived, good for you.

I first wrote this blog, to help me to cope with my mother’s death, the shock of the abandonment by my two oldest sisters, and the fact that my daughter chose to be with my oldest sister.

We are a product of our choices!

I cannot move forward without saying good-bye, and letting my family members who might be interested in talking to me that I am at the same phone number that I have had for twenty years.

Good Bye ~

  1. I hope you decide to return some day. I will miss you. I have enjoyed our time together. I think you are a wonderful person. You have offered your support to a complete stranger and it made a difference. Best wishes always.

  2. I had enough at 39 and have kept the cork in for 37 years. With my wife’s passing, I’m also making adjustments and these are the times that show who really has your best interests at heart. Let go of the negative people around you. Pure Vida and great surfing. Incidentally your posts were the only reason that I keep her email open.

    1. I’ve arranged things that my blog will stay on the internet. I’m making this change because I want to really focus on my photography, and deflect the negative. I loved Jennifer so much. We were such unlikely friends. We had the best talks. I miss her. And Iook at my photos of her often. I don’t want to loose touch.
