I feel as though I've turned a corner in the past few weeks. I ended a horrible, borderline abusive short term dating thing in which I felt terrible about myself. There was nothing good about it, and I was afraid to let go. But I did. And I feel great.
I've gone on a couple of dates since then. One particularly bad one that makes me realize I'm stronger and smarter then I ever thought I was.
I'm facing a major health crisis at the moment. Potential permanent loss of vision in one eye. That's being dealt with as best as it can be.
But all in all, I feel good about myself and my life. Even with some of the shitty stuff that's going on in it. For the first time in a really, really long time I value ME. That's kind of cool.
I finally feel like I'm embracing my new beginning. I like it.
