******because it is in the longing that you find the energy source of life. God is in the longing...it reminds us we have more to see, more to feel, more to know...yet ironically, we already have within us everything we need. So the longing you feel is about the desire to be fully integrated. And the people who "turn you on" have gifts and lessons and perhaps even pieces of yourself that went missing (as it feels) when you were a kid...and you long for those missing pieces to be returned. They are already within you, you just don't know it. The longing is the recognition that you have forgotten for awhile... Remembering won't take away the longing, but it might help reduce the suffering.

> That's true. Thank you for all your replies I really take comfort in knowing that there are others out there that can empathise with me! It is true to say that my dreams have a significant hold on my life; I always hold on that that glimmer of hope (no matter how small) that things will turn out the way I like, but more often than not I receive the opposite. I'm not sure how telling myself that I'm better than this is going to help me, but I've told myself repeatedly before to take things slowly and not to think too much. Somehow my advice fails me. A single worry on my part can start off the vicious cycle again.
