    financially, this is a better year than the past two, but emotionally, this is one of the worst ever.

    I deal with the bad, focus on the good. As long as you keep your life in "edit mode" (constantly weed out the bad), you will always be ahead of the curve.

    well, you take the good and bad. and as one of the posters said, try to weed out the bad or not focus on it. if it is negative people in your life, then spend less time with them or move on. Sometimes to get something, you have to give up something. What can you give up in your life that would make it a little better?

    This year is definitely not going like I would have hoped. Maybe I am trying to hard, maybe I am focusing too much on things that don't deserve my time. Not sure exactly how to move forward and let things go. 2011 isn't even over yet!

    It hasn't been particularly shitty but it has been particularly confusing and more than a tad upsetting. While things haven't exactly gone the way i've wanted them too, they still haven't completely sucked. Doin ma best to take the good with the bad...or the not so good.

    In a word, yes.

    And more than likely is't just going to get worse.

    I'll live...

    Emotionally, sleeping with my ex again and being reminded of how much I love him and miss him wrecked the rest of the year for me. Financially, this year has been sucking more and more each month although I see an improving situation in the coming months. Health, so far I can't complain. Had to have a biopsy a few months ago and it was benign (THANK GOD!!!).

    My only comfort has been that at least my family and friends are healthy and happy.

    These are the times when I look to friends and family for conversation, and companionship. At times I seek good fun
    like a good movie, a long walk along the ocean, hit the gym
    or more often a long, long bike ride. Living in the SoCal during
    the summer months I change my daily to get out very early
    to go for a hike sometimes with some one or go alone. Than
    there are time I meet an old friend for coffee or may be a
    lunch. I try to shake up my routine if nothing else from getting
    bored and to get out of the house.

    This past year I had to deal with a woman at work that is a nightmare. She has always been a mean and negative person, but it really became focused on me as I became a department head. She was jealous of the move and said she wanted it but in reality she was afraid of the position. In front of a group of people she had a tantrum and then in her embarrassment said she thought I was going to hurt her and that is why she was upset. I actually had to turn in several letters of complaint. I just couldn't stand it anymore and was determined she was not going to keep me from doing my job. The company brought in an arbiter, but there goal was to say it was a problem between two people rather than her harrassing me...this way they would not be at fault. Amazingly, out of the blue, she quit a month ago. I still feel I have this post-war after shock from the entire thing but am hoping the year will now get better. So is this year shitty? Well, I wouldn't wish it on anyone, but I am still going for now. I guess I will look back on New Years Eve and then make the call on how the year went. Will let you know. LOL

    I don't have much family to turn to, both my parents are complete idiots, that are no help, except for giving bad advice. If you were to look at them, you would never believe I came from them(I always hoped as a kid my REAL parents would show up one day---lol)Most my friends seems to have cookie-cutter lives--does anyone else know what i mean by this...?

    Yeah....this has been one of the worst years of my life. Romantically, emotionally, financially, family-wise.....you know how they say 'at least you have your health'? Well, that went in January..... Still, I am doing the best I can to stay positive. I am not afraid of being alone; I can get physically better for the most part; my family will survive; I am employed; and emotionally - I will just stay focused on what is good. Still....it'd be nice if 2012 was kinder to me :)

    "ain't found away to kill me yet"

    this has been the worst year of my life.
    i am bone weary.

    i'm holding on to "could be worse" to be grateful.
    still is feeling like life is taking it as a challenge.
    *is pouting*

    still.. good things have happened for people i care about.
    so i am willing to gut it out.
