My name is Peggy...you all know me, don't you?
But there's hidden things, secrets about me, just as there are about all of us...

I am well, and reasonably happy tonight...

I don't know why I'm posting this...

Somehow, I felt it might be a good idea...

Remember...I love you all!

12. My dear greenbriar...
Thanks, sweetie...

This is who I am, most of the time, anyway...

If you could ask the folks who know me off the board, they would tell you also...

I can be angry, or snarky...

But I tend not to do it here.

I guess I've seen enough sorrow and loss to inflict it on anyone already hurting...

9. Here's my secret CPeg.
Most people see me as a stand-offish, sarcastic A-hole, when in reality, I'm just a pathologically shy class clown.

If we didn't have our dark sides, we wouldn't be human. And, dark/light is all relative anyway.

Your secrets are like strawberries and sunshine compared to the people we strive against daily here at DU.

13. My dear MilesColtrane...
Of course, we all have a dark side...

I do too...

And you're right: it makes us human.

You might be surprised about the stuff I'm hiding...just sayin'!

Thank you for your kind words...

So much safer...

11. I got em too :)
But no matter your's I see you as someone I care about, someone who has done good here.

The bad/good of the past? That has no bearing on the NOW.

Neither you nor I can fix our past, we can only change our now and future.

Of course you do, sweetie...

And you've done so much good here, with your posts!

I just finished posting in your thread about heroes...

I have no regrets about my past...

I try to live in the NOW...

And bloom where I'm planted...

19. And you are planted here and now, and my secrets and yours...
Well, we will live with them and wish perhaps they never were :)

But IT does help to talk about them perhaps as individuals, to 'get them out' and purge them so that we can rid ourselves of them.

Usually it is because we feel bad about them, which is funny really - we can do a million good things but the bad things are the ones that haunt us like ghosts (and there is poem in that somewhere).

Maybe it is because we expect ourselves to be only good, which in the end is really silly.

I spend a lot of time kicking my ass for what I have done wrong in life, to no avail. And the really funny thing is that maybe them catholics were right about 'confession' - it IS good for the soul.

In 42 years on this earth I have realized that I have spent a lot of time hurting over what I did wrong, instead of celebrating what I did right - which is way more than what I did wrong.

Guilt is a fucked up thing. It is akin to the chains that the ghost of Marley carried in the Dickens' novel about Scrooge.

In the end, I think it is an easy thing to forgive other's their trespasses than it is to forgive ourselves.

The lesson I learned more than any other from Christianity is that you need to forgive yourself, because God already has and does not want you to carry those weights around as they contribute nothing to the future.

Someday I will forgive myself for what I see as I did wrong (not to say it was not wrong, but keeping it with me is more wrong I suppose).

I guess it is harder to forgive one's self than it is others.

funny how that works.

Now I just need to cry and try to forgive myself. which is messed up because I can forgive most anything someone has done to me but I cannot myself....

20. I keep my secrets because they are very personal...
Not because they're bad or evil somehow...

But I hear you about forgiveness...

I think we humans are that way!

We tend to be hard on ourselves, and more than we are on others...

I've got your back, sweetie... :hug:

24. Hell
I wish I had my own back sometimes my friend :)

would that I could practice that which I preach.

I am hard on myself way too much, and I just cannot stop. But I cannot go down that road right now.

I was once a confident and sure man. I am but a shell of that now.

Maybe someday....

Most my friends are dead now, and the only ones I have left are here on DU. Pretty sad really when the only people you have left to talk to you have never met and probably never will :)

Sorry for the rant. Yet another funeral this weekend and another milestone passed. And she was only 45.

26. Don't ever apologize for ranting!
You do it so well!

I'm sorry to hear about your friend...45 is way too young, indeed...

And someday you and I will meet!

I don't think it's sad when people meet and talk on the internet...

I consider this is some sort of miracle!

After all, what are the odds of meeting?

People from all over the world come here...

Pretty long odds, I'd say!

You've been through hell, and back...no wonder you doubt yourself!

I've still got your back, you hear me?
