Feeling Less Like a Ghost These Days
I am a recovering ghost. No. Don't laugh. I have a hard time getting people to notice me. I used to disappear in front of my kids. I used to disappear in front of people at work. It is a very handy skill to have when I am walking down a rough street. Sadly, though, the street people near my job are invisible too so we all see each other. That's a joke, folks. As with any 12 step program, I didn't start to get better until I admitted that I was a ghost and I had a problem not being heard, seen or felt in my own life. Since then I have become more visible -- not only to others but to myself. And that is very good thing.
