The worst pain I have ever overcome, I cannot overcome, except during momentary times of forgetting…like when I have a fun experience with a friend, read a good book, enjoy a vacation, find a pleasant distraction, etc. Every positive feeling is felt, yet always diminishes in time, quickly or shortly but always certainly, back to the pain and sadness…and that worst pain for me, which never truly goes away, is the loss of the greatest love of my life, my “twin soul”. I believe that the pain of separation (by death) from those whom we love most dearly is the worst pain which can never be completely overcome by any one of us.

The worst pain I have ever overcome was ACCEPTING the FACT that people were not going to act like the screenplay I written (in my head). It’s very hard for people to get the lines/roles correct when they didn’t apply/audition & I never gave them a copy of the script (that is STILL in my head,lol).

The worst pain I have not yet overcome but am working on each and everyday of my life. The loss of my beautiful daughter. I live everyday with the heartache.

the death of my grandmother and the emotional pain of depression
Letting my own insecurities prevent me from helping the person who supported me during the worst period of my life.

And I still find myself paralyzed by fear at even the most insignificant of correspondences.
