I can't express into words how good It felt to come into SI when my life felt in shambles and I was too depressed or ashames to talk about my feelings in much detail with anyone irl.

everytime I log in and read posts or post my own topic, I feel less alone and I gather more perspective(wanted or not )

My last post was about how sad, alone, and desperate I was feeling, and thanks to the amazingingly supportive feedback I got, I was able to truly feel uplifted.

Today I decided that being on my own is a blessing. I get to do what want, and feel good everyday that I I accomplish something new. heres what ive got that makes me feel good about being me right now.

I tuned up my own lawnmower(googled it)

I planted an herb garden

I'm getting interviewed for a better paying postion at my second job(every $ matters)

I'm getting my braces off at the end of summer

I enrolled in two fall classes and am only twelve classes short of my BS

Im happy being single right now :).

I have awesome friends who help me look for my lost cat in the dark in my neighbor's yard, while I cry about how he's too fat to run if car almost hits him.

I'm excited to be a bridesmaid in just two weeks for a great friend, and I'm not worried about taking a date to the wedding.

this is the most comfortable I have felt in two years, maybe longer.

I helped my brother pick out dad's gravemarker and supported his choices, making me feel all big sistery.

I like hanging out with myself

I owe a lot of this state of mind to fellow SIers, who have helped me see things in a different light, and made me remember how good it feels to know that I am strong on my own.

ETA: I meant thanks for the inspiration! And I couldn't agree more with how fabulous the people here are.

I always find that being lonely while single is better than being lonely in a relationship.

Love this!

It takes courage to stand on our own. I get lonely sometimes too but far less lonely than I was pre-DD.

Its also a breakthrough to realise we're OK on our own. I've never been a 'couply' person but after almost a decade it was a tough adjustment to make.

The freedom of being able to do whatever the hell I want to do seemed big and was scary at first. I well and truly have the hang of it now though.
