SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

The Beatles sang, "I Get By With A Little Help From My Friends", and that is so true. Regular Chat Room attendees become like a family to each other. Everyone is in the "Same Boat", just at different stages of their journeys. So, everyone is able to offer input, encouragement, and help to the group in their own special ways. Many friends send very helpful emails to be shared, and so we would like to post some of them here for all to benefit from. Enjoy.

A letter to Midlife Dimensions & Chat Room Guests

Dear Midlife Dimensions and Chat Room Guests,

 

I have been visiting the chat room archives for over a year and I feel that I know everyone. I've read Jim's book, “Men In Midlife Crisis” and have a good grasp of what a midlife crisis is. I’m writing to share a bit of my story, and how I’ve made it through this rocky time. Although, I don’t attend the chat room sessions, I want to offer some encouragement for those who do, and are willing to open up and share their lives. Everyone’s questions and replies (in the chat rooms) have meant so much to me, and have taught me many important lessons.

I showed that I was working on myself and my relationship with God, my kids, etc. I was no longer focused on my wife and the marriage. As long as I chased my wife, she had control of me and the marriage. When I gave control of my marriage and life to God and pursued Him, she came back over time. It took patience and perseverance, and more importantly I was finally okay with whatever her choices were going to be, because I was content with myself and God.

"Recall Notice" sent in by Chat Room Friend, "MarySarah"

God: Recall NoticeThe Maker of all human beings is recalling all units manufactured, regardless of make or year, due to a serious defect in the primary and central component of the heart. This is due to a malfunction in the original prototype units, code named Adam and Eve, resulting in the reproduction of the same defect in all subsequent units.. This defect has been technically termed "Sub-sequential Internal Non-Morality," or more commonly known as S.I.N., as it is primarily expressed.        

Some other symptoms include:
