These are my favorite opals. Don’t they look like hatching dragon eggs? My mom has a bunch, but we went into an opal store and they had cases and cases of them. It looked like an incubator lol
Tired of having set-backs and allowing people to give me set-backs.
I really felt myself slipping back into it the past couple of days but I woke up this morning with a different attitude. It was going really well until the evening. I can only hope and try to counter this and not let it get progressively worse, again. Easier said than done though, as usual.
My inability to talk just makes matters worse too.
"Be with her because you actually want to be with her, because you actually see a potential future with her, not because you are used to being with her, not because you’re scared of the thought that being without them will ruin you. The point of being in a relationship is to enjoy each other’s company, is to be there to support each other when they need it most. No one person, defines who you are. They only compliment you."

Are you ok? Sending love
ANON I am okay, everyone has their moments just :)
and last night was one of them
I finally admitted to something I’ve been ignoring for many years now, it’s scary and, in some ways relieving.
I’m at the scared moment right now though because there’s always the worry it will come back.
I let myself admit to it even though you ignored it - this isn’t me being selfish, or stupid. I thought you would be able to see but you couldn’t. Oh I tried you’ve no idea how I tried to say but the words stuck in my mouth. You couldn’t really hear my pleas, could you? I was too evasive, not blunt enough yet I said all the key words, the triggers. At the end of it, you just left me by myself really.
That’s why I’m okay - you left me when I needed you, you didn’t see what I needed you to. Why couldn’t you see? I have to be okay really, what else am I to do? I’m angry and shocked and so hurt. Why does this always happen to me? I feel so betrayed. I tried and you just left me.
I won’t let you make me feel selfish I won’t let you make me feel insignificant I won’t let you make me feel like my emotions and thoughts aren’t real. They are. They are. I know they are.

Greek Gold Wreath of Oak Leaves and Flowers, possibly from Attica, Greece, late 2nd - early 1st century BC
In ancient Greece, oak leaves symbolized wisdom, and were associated with Zeus, who according to Greek mythology made his decisions while resting in an oak grove.
Gold wreaths such as this one derive their form from wreaths of real leaves worn in religious ceremonies or given as prizes in athletic and artistic contests. Because of their fragility, gold wreaths were probably not meant to be worn. They were dedicated to the gods in sanctuaries and placed in graves as funerary offerings. Although known in earlier periods, gold wreaths became much more frequent in the Hellenistic age, probably due in large part to the greatly increased availability of gold in the Greek world following the eastern conquests of Alexander the Great.
