Unwanted

                                            
We all have the same fundamental needs. We all struggle with various problems, big and little of daily life.
There are stressing situations in our life that are difficult to cope with; as financial problems, the loss of a loved one, the end of a relationship...then we may lose interest in normal activities, feel hopeless, lack productivity and have a low self-esteem. 
As a result, our overall quality of life may be low. Then self-criticism will take place.Something prevent us from living life to the fullest.
We may feel alone and unloved. "The poverty of being unwanted, unloved, and uncared for it is the greatest poverty."  
Mother Teresa

Wow....I have been feeling just about all the emotions you wrote about..I really needed to hear this today..bless you for bringing this to us all, to me...thank you:)

Unfortunately, you are quite right...everybody feels down on their luck sometimes, but I say that it's not what happens to us, but what we do about it. And I agree with Deano that the Mother Teresa quote is great.

I liked your recent comment on my blog, and I hope that you can comment on these recent posts, if you have time:

Hi! Isn't this a pleasant coincidence that we both seem to be in a mood of gloom today. While you tried to get over it by sounding optimistic, I did my part in writing it down as a... ahem! Poetry!

And the quote from Mother Theresa is very profound and so true!

Thanks for sharing.

yeahh u are exactly right and this is an awesome stuff, we are fed up with holding the burden of life and also we are fearful to hope coz disappointments never give up chasing us

Naqvee said...

i agree to what everyone has said above! and Mother Theresa made every attem pt to eradicate that poverty she talked about! lets get inspired and work in this direction.. wat do u say?

Betty Manousos:cutand-dry.blogspot.com said...

Naqvee: You are absolutely right.
We have the power to change the gloomy mood and view. Here is my strategy. I try to be creative and find new activities. I think mind-body techniques like yoga, is a good strategy, too. Thank you for commenting:)

I believe if we look to the Author of our faith...and keep our eyes firmly on Him, we gain perspective and the darkness no longer seem so dark.

Great post Betty

Beautiful post. Great quote. Love your photos, you have such a good eye. I'd love the ability to translate what I see into what I show, like you do.

Thanks for stopping by. It's always wonderful to meet new people and visit one another. The blogging community is like a huge neighborhood similar to where I grew up where we kids were in and out of each other's homes.
