12 people went


This week, coordinator Bob Gordon, MSOD, MA, MS, presents the topic Understanding the Sinking Ship. Then, there will be small-group break-out sessions.

Newcomers please join us at 6:30 PM.

Regular meeting begins at 7:00 PM.

Relationships end over time, just as a ship remains on the surface a while, as it sinks. Those in the lower parts of the ship notice the sinking sooner than those on the upper parts, so it may seem more sudden to one, that the other. It may seem more likely that the relationship will survive, to another. It takes time to wrap our heads around the facts. I started a journal, the evening that my ex said she was moving out. I named it, "IsThisTheEnd". I wasn't sure and I didn't want it to end, when it was ending. I didn't want it to end, at all. I wanted to get around to working and keeping things together. The time had passed, though.
A member shared this idea, "A ship is designed to take you places, so if your friendSHIP, companionSHIP, partnerSHIP or relationSHIP isn't taking you anywhere, abandon SHIP! I have heard an old saying that is related to this, as well, "It's easier to ride the horse in the direction he is heading." It takes time, but when we do align ourselves with the prevailing winds, we can better save ourselves. Come and learn more at the meeting. ~Ken Cain, SAEC.
