Anniversaries - Just venting

There are good anniversaries like: birthdays, weddings, first dates, moving, meeting people, having children. Then there are bad anniversaries. These are the dates (or approximate dates) of things that happened in your life that were REALLY bad. Things you have no control over. And even though life goes on and you have moved on and are doing well, these anniversaries pop up when you don't expect them. And you have bad dreams about someone and wonder "What is THAT all about?" And then you remember. However, time heals all wounds and this bad anniversary is getting less mean and manipulative and next year will be even easier. I can look back and see how far I have come. Thanks.

bad anniversaries are bad news. I've tried to loose the dates- the memory fades quicker that way . plus i have a terrible memory.

Funny how it's harder to forget the bad ones than it is to remember the good ones.

You're strong. You're awesome.

I have those bad anniversaries too. The hurt doesn't ever go away, and you never forget, but hopefully now there's more and more good to lessen the pain. You are the strongest person I know. chin up! Think happy thoughts, and if you need to chit chat I'm a phone call away.

Hey Lisa, I don't like it when you talk about the bad anniversary but then don't mention what it is. Come on, spread the gossip!
