- Approval Addiction caused from being ridiculed in life
- Fear of Abandonment caused from loss of loved ones through divorce, death and other ways
- Rejection and hurt in general caused by those of us who experienced the "clickish clan" of life, leaving us with a feeling that we weren't good enough or that we didn't make it on their....."A" List of friends
- Self Absorption leading to a "What about me?" mentality. Many try to build a different image as a result of not feeling accepted for who you really are.
It's just me, Val
Here's a joke someone shared with me today...as funny as it is meant to be, this happens to us in real life...
we forget and end up on the wrong path because we just aren't getting it!
A 54 year old woman had a heart attack and was taken to the hospital. While on the operating table she had a .. Seeing God she asked "Is my time up?" God said, "No, you have another 43 years, 2 months and 8 days to live." Upon recovery, the woman decided to stay in the hospital and have a face-lift, liposuction, breast implants and a tummy tuck. She even had someone come in and change her hair color and brighten her teeth! Since she had so much more time to live, she figured she might as well make the most of it. After her last operation, she was released from the hospital. While crossing the street on her way home, she was killed by an ambulance. Arriving in front of God, she demanded, "I thought you said I had another 43 years? Why didn't you pull me from out of the path of the ambulance?" God replies: "I didn't recognize you."

He said I was in my early fourties with a lot of life before me when a moment came that stopped me on a dime I spent most of the next days lookin' at the x-rays and talkin' 'bout the options and talkin' bout sweet time I asked him when it sank in and this might be the really real end I said how's it hit ya when you get that kinda news? Man what'd ya do? and he said CHORUS I went sky diving i went rocky mountain climbing I went two point seven seconds on a bull named Fumanchu And I loved deeper and I spoke sweeter and I gave forgiveness I'd been denying and he said some day I hope you get the chance to live like you were dying He said I was finally the husband that most the time I wasn't and I became a friend a friend would like to have And all ‘a sudden going fishin' Wasn't such an imposition And I went three times that year I lost my dad Well I finally read the good book And I took a good long hard look At what I'd do if I could do it all again…and then I went sky diving i went rocky mountain climbing I went two point seven seconds on a bull named Fumanchu And I loved deeper and I spoke sweeter and I gave forgiveness I'd been denying and he said some day I hope you get the chance to live like you were dying like tomorrow was a gift and you got eternity to think about what'd you do with it. what did you do with it.what did I do with it? what would I do with it? Sky diving i went rocky mountain climbing I went two point seven seconds on a bull named Fumanchu And I loved deeper and I spoke sweeter and I watched an eagle as it was flying and he said some day I hope you get the chance to live like you were dying
