Why Did It Take Me Seven Years to Give Up on My Affair Partner?

Posted by The Thinking Other Woman on May 19, 2022 at 4:40 PM

They also don’t choose to get involved with anyone married in the first place.

 

For me, the lure of my married guy held twin, powerful d...

Posted by The Thinking Other Woman on May 12, 2022 at 3:20 AM

A question from two days on: Why did I even write this?? (Addendum written May 14th.)

Really, Really Ill

Posted by The Thinking Other Woman on May 5, 2022 at 4:50 PM

Well, I don't know what's happened. I've either caught Giardia at work, or food poisoning, or something like Norovirus is going around again and I have it. (Note the choice of PUKE-green lettering.)


I haven't been able to eat anything for four days. I have been basically confined to the couch (heavily padded with quilts and towels), barely able to drag myself to the bath...

Living What's Left, Part 2

Posted by The Thinking Other Woman on May 1, 2022 at 2:30 PM

Therapist Samantha Rodman Whiten, writing to a reader about treatment-resistant depression, writes:

"In a sense, if you know that every day will be gray and stifling, but you are still strong enough to exercise, parent, and write to me, then you may be very well suited to try and find a new and transformative purpose in your l...

A Piece of Wisdom

Posted by The Thinking Other Woman on April 26, 2022 at 9:20 PM

How can you tell whether an impulse is coming from your ego or your soul?

Your ego wants you to stay stuck and stay the same. Your soul wants you to move forward.

P.S. It's my understanding you have something you wish you had told me. What is it?

Constructing More About Astrology For A Certain Visitor ...

Posted by The Thinking Other Woman on April 24, 2022 at 11:20 AM

Some of this post is going to be redundant. Some of the text is from a new page I'm preparing for the astrology tab of this site. But, I'm putting it here for a reason: A certain visitor does not visit any other page except the blog. If I expect him to find it on the astrology tab, I'll be waiting for a long time. 


But, it's going up here for the following reason:

Received this piece of information about you, (in case you ever come back here again.)

Posted by The Thinking Other Woman on April 23, 2022 at 7:15 AM

This came out of a card reading: You're trying to pretend the past didn't happen to you, when nothing's going to get better unless and until you go back and heal it. We're talking about your ACOA childhood, here.


I already told you this. :| Maybe start listening, before you DIE?

Maybe I'm getting old.


No, maybe it's time for the nursing home already.

I Think I'm Finally Getting a Tiny, Little Peek At It

Posted by The Thinking Other Woman on April 17, 2022 at 1:35 PM

After nearly two weeks, I had thought my mysterious visitor had finally decided never to come back. But, this morning, there he was. #8309....


This time appearing as if from "Baltimore," the person skipped over the antidepressant post, the book post, the link post, and the "Reality Bites" post, to read "Let's Just Kiss and Say Goodbye." (Boy, those lyrics were spot-on!) ...

So, My Therapist Wants Me On Antidepressants ...

Posted by The Thinking Other Woman on April 14, 2022 at 10:40 PM

It's like this ...


My new book went up on Amazon two days ago. I felt triumphant about that mostly because I had only ever heard about how fucking horrible KDP is to work with, and I had approached the task with trepidation. I decided to try using Kindle Create instead, although a friend reported that people online were saying they hated it.
