No Longer Playing It Safe, by bell hooks

Currently going through a difficult relationship with another sangha (Buddhist group of practicioners) member. It's like the proverbial thorn in the lion's paw. (I'm very strong-willed.) Last night I made up my mind to love him regardless of his rejection or acceptance. I'm determined to do this for the strength of the sangha as well as my own inner strength. I guess I could say that I felt some kinda "born again" experience in my resolve.

Thanks so much, Kristin! My path is similar to yours: anorexic (borderline); suicidal, schizophrenic father; depression, in my case it's on-going with periodic severe dips;lowest edge of middle class (althonot *very* lowest.) Maybe our biggest difference is that I'm a male and have had to somehow own up to "manhood" with perpetual silence about my past. I'd love to talk to somebody with a similar past but they are few & far between. I'll definitely check out Steer Your Story. Thanks again!
