Reblog Love

mikefrawley:

:D  BIG SMILE.  Thank you DJ.  After writing my umpteenth I can’t write poem (which is flying like a lead balloon), I began scrolling down my dash and courtesy of you all I saw was me.  I  greatly enjoy reblogging friends and seeing them get a little extra love, and it’s equally rewarding to be on the receiving end.  It doesn’t even matter if you get like a gazillion more notes, it’s just knowing that someone liked a post or cared enough to take a moment and share something of yours.  I guess it’s true, on Tumblr we do spell love R-E-B-L-O-G!.  Hey, I just realized that I haven’t done the good morning thing in way too long, shall we?  Okay, here goes!  :)  If no one’s told you yet today, let me be the first to say…

I love you,
Mike <3

Fragile Personalities

mikefrawley:

Do our words actually carry the power to wound or heal?  Please allow me to share a little story with you.  Years ago a young man battling recurring depression and a growing substance abuse problem went for counseling.  It helped a bit, but somewhere along the way in one of the sessions the therapist informed him that he was a fractured personality.  Although the broken pieces could be placed back together, he would never be whole.  As you might guess, this hurt the young man greatly.  After all, never seems like a very long time to be unwell.  Soon he ended the sessions and continued struggling through life as best he could.  A few years later, depressed again and rapidly losing his battle with addiction, he again went into therapy.   This therapist was very compassionate and did everything humanly possible to save him from himself.   One day he mentioned the fractured personality diagnosis.   Upon hearing this her eyes flashed with the sorrow of compassion, and with an understanding smile she asked “How about fragile personality?”  While he wasn’t immediately “cured” and his journey to wellness is still ongoing, he did find fragile to be much more palatable than fractured, and realized that he could live with being a fragile personality.  Later he even understood that most people are fragile to some extent, and he promised himself that to the best of his ability he would treat them and himself with that in mind.  Are words powerful?  You decide for yourself.  One word made the difference between broken beyond repair and sensitive and easily hurt.  In a way we’re all fragile personalities, each doing the best that we’re capable of at any given moment.  Everyone desires to be happy and each of us longs to be loved.  Please choose your words carefully and use them wisely.  Remember, there may be fragile personalities about.

<3 this Mike…


I think this my third attempt at saying goodnight.  It’s funny how that happens so often, the old soul gets weary and the inner writer/child simply wants to play, be loving and be loved.  Guess who usually wins.  :)  Anyway, thank you and goodnight my friends.  Your kindness is appreciated probably more than you could possibly imagine.  I have an oldie I want to share in a little bit that seems to fit with my writing theme for tonight, and with no further ado…

Goodnight and love to all,
Mike <3
