You go girl! Now you've got it! I know easier said than done. BUT you intellectually have a great grasp on this. I want to take back the day I had the surgery that wrecked me and may eventually still cost me my life but I can't. Just as you can't take back all the time you spent with him. BUT, we made the best decisions we could AT THE TIME with the information we were given or saw demonstrated before our eyes. You did not knowingly invest in someone you knew was a jerk. AND I did not knowingly have surgery I did not need with disastrous outcome pending. We just didn't know.
I know what you mean about
being in a room full of friends and busy on a daily basis and still feeling there is a void in us. But, Do you know who we are really missing? We are missing ourselves. It's as simple as that.
For awhile don't even think about
a replacement for your former special man. You need time to heal and find you. ONce you find you whatever is meant to be will come to you be it friends, a great job, your family coming back to you? or even another special man, maybe when you are 30, 40, 50? You have no idea what or when. That is what makes life so good is not knowing what good things will come your way or when.
Glad I could help. Fate has given me a new direction in life though sure not the way I envisioned it, but I'm compelled to at least try and help others. Hope I made you feel a bit better. You sound better
Have a good night. Rosemary
