Following up on being ignored - being alone is different to being ignored. Being ignored at work is a way of being told that they don't value your contribution. Being alone (in the right circumstances) can be an option to enjoy yourself and be selfish.

# 2 ~ one doesn't need the stress of being IGNORED !

Stress will still be with you - As we become older so must our family members ! sometimes family tends to not include one for various reasons, so be prepared for some let downs... just saying.

I want to start creating with stained glass again... I want to take watercolor painting classes.. I want to read and to garden and I want to be happy.... I also am afraid because i fear I will not have enough money and also that health issues will come up and all sorts of foolish thoughts come into my mind.

Good Luck!
