G'day new friend. Seems like I've had to deal with many troubling issues lately. When life becomes unbearable for me, as it often does, I look to God for the joy & strength to move on. I pray for God's touch on your life & in your situation.

n I have tried to complete next poem ...
Yeah we end up saying I tried.And it will be mostly things we are not interested.
You can do if u want to..but ppl always says "I tried.."

Work can be very stressful and tiring. I have to agree with the general consensus of you taking care of yourself. Have you thought of maybe taking a few days off to relax and do things you enjoy? I might just give you the energy boost you need to refresh yourself. Good luck!

Monday 18 September 2006 - 08:43PM (EEST)

I have been very tired lately too, no one understands just how much I have earned, and yet have not been paid for

Monday 18 September 2006 - 01:52PM (EDT)

I know the feeling...Sometimes, don't you think we do so very much for others, that we are the ones that end up feeling worse because we get so tired and worn out from "trying" so very hard at everything and working at "pleasing all of the people all of the time" We need to step out of things, and look in at the situations, recharge the batteries, then go in again...You are so often on my mind....Take Care

Homer Simpson quotes

You can't keep blaming yourself. Just blame yourself once, and move on.

Trying is the first step towards failure.

I'm normally not a praying man, but if you're up there, please save me, Superman

Know you like Homer, Marty, hope his view gives you a lift

Monday 18 September 2006 - 11:22AM (PDT)

Marty, when you are all tried out and have nothing more to's time to move on.
You've been thinking about it for some time, now perhaps it's time to do it.
If what you are doing no longer rewards you mentally, morally, financially, whatever.....move on to something new that will.

Monday 18 September 2006 - 07:44PM (BST)

I agree maybe it time to try something new, at the very least I think you need to take a few days break and think things over seriously away from the pressures of your job, it sounds to me as though it is sucking the life out of you. You need to thin of your self Marty, I know you like to think of others and to take care of others but no one will be cared for or looked after if Marty is broken will they, dont let Marty get broken please mate.

Monday 18 September 2006 - 08:14PM (BST)

Hi Marty, Sorry to hear that you are so weary of a lot of things, but that is a very strong reason why you should take care of yourself now. Well, you know, nurse yourself back to happiness and vigour. Then you will find some new fulfilling ways to live.
Love, EC

Marty it is so easy to get burned out in this job believe me I know.....And no matter which way you look at it babe, your first loyalties and responsibilities should be to yourself and your family..face it what good would you be to your family should you be the next to break down..
You are a kind generous and loving man I feel that from your blogs, so save yourself, do some soul searching and move on to what makes you happy .... And remember the people you work with will take all you have to give and move on without a second

Monday 18 September 2006 - 09:38PM (BST)

sounds to me like it's time somebody took a holiday, some time where you 'try' to do nothing more than think about yourself and maybe, just a little bit, your family

Monday 18 September 2006 - 10:41PM (BST)

This too shall pass. Hang in there.... :)

Monday 18 September 2006 - 02:44PM (PDT)

Sounds like you tried everything.....but did you try praying?

Monday 18 September 2006 - 02:48PM (PDT)

SexcW.... Yeah, praying is something I'm back to more now. I'm getting a calling to move on I think. Can't do that till I find it.

Thanks Sab.... It will pass I know, but right now I'm in the midst of the storm and its draining.... I need patience.

Hi Viv.... Just had a 3 week break... although we didn't actually go away anywhere... Coming back to work and feeling like this indicates to me I need to do something.

Elle.... I sense you understand because you have been there. I've campaigned for ethical supervision (therapy) but its fallen on deaf ears. My experience tells me to find my own therapy now..

EC.... Taking care of myself is what I want to do... but thats kinda hard because I worried about others and my collegues and what they may think of me.... I know that is so damn irrational..

Kev... I think you know only too well... I feel you a guy "of kin" with me. Like I said.... I need to find the therapy now...

Mitch... Yup.... you further confirm me feelings.. Find summut different thats a fresh challenge.... when the time is right.

Dogged Christian.... You got the nail on the head... This makes me smile. I love the Simpsons so much. This humour helps me to see the funny side of the most desperate situations. Its a kind of pathos that is endearing!

Sharron... Thank you sweetness.... You kindness touches my heart.

Bella... I think you and me are a kin in this issue...

Jamie..... The rest has been had... now is the time for real consideration for me.

Manz.... I think the "want" has got up and left the biulding for a while...

Quack, Rainy and dormouse... its been private messages a phone calls with you guys.... so I need not say more.....

All... Thank you for being around for me... I'm still about and intend to remain so. I love you all for reading what I have said. It means so much to me...Just reading tonight has lifted me... Marty xx

Hey Marty! Sorry you have so much problem at work!! Agree with everyone else that you need to take care of you. You are always taking care of everyone else and worrying that they will not be happy with you. Not good! Need to worry about what makes you feel good and what makes YOU happy. Take Care my dear. Have a better Tuesday!! Big Hugs! Love ya!

Monday 18 September 2006 - 09:18PM (MDT)

I have a strong feeling that you are the right man many ladies would fall in love with, you are so considerate, tender and humble,in a word, you are trying to do everything for the others, even though you may tired out for it, at the same time you gain a lot , and they are valuable. Love you!

Tuesday 19 September 2006 - 04:21PM (CST)

If you have tried that means you are a 'do~er', thats a good quality to have, we are tested all the time it wouldn't be life if we all just got it easy, stay strong hun, hugs xx

Trying times... faith alone helps.

Tuesday 19 September 2006 - 09:26PM (IST)

Marty... sometimes it seems that nothing we do is ever enough. take some time for you somehow. have you been running lately? you can clear your head and work things out. It leaves you mentally stronger and more able to cope. Go at least twice a week. I'd come with you if i lived nearer! Put those running shoes on NOW and head out the door......take care.

Tuesday 19 September 2006 - 08:12PM (BST)

I hope the mountains help you Marty! Where is it?

Tuesday 19 September 2006 - 09:47PM (CEST)

I've got nothing to add to all the warm thoughts already expressed.

Have faith in yourself and the rest will work itself out.

Tuesday 19 September 2006 - 03:33PM (CDT)

The squeaky wheel gets the oil.. sound like hon you are the squeeky wheel and it is time to oil you! Time to take a time out, tend to your own maintence, if you feel the same way after a time out, it is time to move on! You may have simply outgrew the position.. :) When one door closes, another one opens! :)

Tuesday 19 September 2006 - 04:19PM (CDT)

Hun at least you tried...Most people dont dare try anymore. Take pleasure in knowing you gave it your all, you did the best..As each parent tells their children... DO your best and try with all you are, If you do that.... I'm proud of you.. The struggles you have been thru lately..Noone expects your best, yet you still give it.. I'm proud of you!!! YOu do need to take a long weekend or so, recoup, recover, chill and reflect, then carry on.. We have faith in you ( BIG HUG)

After the day I've had, I sympathise, my friend. I know where your coming from. I feel the vibe:)
