He told me that when his mother got pregnant, his father made her choose between keeping the child or staying with him. It seems to me his dating style could result from this. He breaks off relationships before they get too serious to avoid the risk of abandonment. He’s built up this reputation for himself as “the player,” but I see past the façade. He’s been a great friend, and I know he’s a very kind person. We all have our issues and cope with life differently. Sometimes I think the “normal” people are just people you don’t know well enough yet.
I’ve been going through this for 9 months now. I can’t seem to convince my mind that it’s just the anxiety speaking and creating fears that I never feared of before. It was weird mines started because I had a drink and I felt I saw the world differently and then it’ built from there… My mind kept spiraling into madness. Continuous thoughts wondering if I was going crazy, if I saw the world differently?! If I would hear something without seeing something or someone I would wonder if I was hearing things and I just don’t know where to begin because you can try to accept it but wo thing else comes along a drags you in the mud again making you believe other stupid things. I feel like I’m going crazy and I’m depressed because of it
A passionate and vibrant friend of PP named Karen was present during the 1-3 shift and for most of my 3 – 5 shift. She has been with us at other times as well. Karen was respectful of our campaign and eager to present a defense for the importance of PP. We agreed to disagree and Nikki did a great job of dialoguing with Karen in a respectful, assertive and professional manner. Karen held a small sign over her head which said “Honk 4 Planned Parenthood.” Karen was relentless and indicated we had the power to close this PP facility. I suppose she was right, however if a closing is to occur, it would be the result of our 40 DFL campaigns and the Lord’s divine intervention. We are merely vessels for Him and any power we may be perceived to have comes from the Lord. When Karen left, she wished us well and we did the same. It appears the other side may be feeling intimidated by our presence and may be doing their homework and know that over 90 abortion clinics have closed since 40 DFL began its first campaign in Texas a dozen years ago.
