I really need to see who my friends are. Please respond if you are my friend. Boundries have been broken now and in the past. I need to see who my friends really are.

Respond if you read my posts and you want to get to know me better. I am actually healing. Things are turning around for the better. I was talking with someone this morning and now I feel better. It is funny how we have answers to our questions.

So I need to see those here who are my friends or want to be.

Standing together is so much better than hiding in the dark.

Always, Michael!

I am always here for you, and I am your friend. You've helped save my life, so if that's not a friend, I don't know what is!

And, by the way, I hope I have paid that back in some way.

Peace and love, my friend,

Michael Joseph,

I'd like to be considered a friend, have always enjoyed your contributions and you were one of the first people to welcome me to this site at a time when I was really down.

I appreciate that and hope you do consider me a friend.

Take good care,

Michael, I have no idea whether you consider me a friend or not. We really haven't had much contact. But I would like to share with you how much your poetry has helped me. Your imagery and slashingly honest prose have brought home to me, time and time again, that I am not an island unto myself when it comes to suffering. Thank you. Peace, Andrew

Michael, remember the most important person you need as a friend is--yourself. Take good care of yourself. Eat right and exercise. Have good times with your wife. Treat yourself more often to the things you as a couple love to do. Don't work too much. Be your best friend--all others can be a good friend, but no one can be your friend like yourself can.

Starting tomorrow--I am going to do some of the things I just wrote to you! It is easy to write about it, but not so easy to do.


If we do not live what we believe, then we will begin to believe what we live.

Listen to what Bob is telling you. And by now, it is tomorrow relative to the post Bob made.

It is hard to do all these things, so just pick one and do it. Do it for yourself, as a friend to yourself, and let yourself enjoy the luxury of having such a good friend.

In friendship,

I do not at all know you well, but that does not mean I do not wish to. And even though I sometime am not here for days or even a week, when I do return, I will read and respond to most every post, yours and others. I am not sure what occured, and I am sorry that you have suffered a betrayal. I have dealt with something similar recently, was actually a break of privacy, and it can be very stressful and difficult. I wish you well, and continued success in healing.

I may not know you well, but perhaps in the future we can get to know eachother. Betrayal is a bitter pill to swallow, and is terrible, but you need to trust people, but perhaps need to be selective of who you trust at times.


Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live in the world they've been given than to explore the power they have to change it. Impossible in not a declaration, it's a dare.
