I have good relationships with most of my clients, but have a couple who I now consider friends. I had to go fix some server issues for one of these clients today. A couple years ago, she had asked about me, because I was having trouble returning her calls after my suicide attempt, so I told her all about my depression and attempt. She also knows that I have left The Princess.

She was asking today about how things were going, so I ended up telling her the whole story about my impending divorce, and The Princess' behaviour that lead up to it. She said a couple items of interest.

- When she found out that I have the boys every weekend, she said, "What parent doesn't want to spend some fun weekend time with their kids? I know it works out well for you, but that just shows how self-absorbed she is! Most people fight for weekends with their kids."

- "You look happier than I've seen you in a long time. It's obvious that you're back, and it's good to see!"

I keep discovering - and being surprised by - the good people I have in my life, but didn't notice before. I love my people!

You deserve to have people recognize this - I'm so glad.

Awesome validation from a friend... Nice of her to tell you.

It is so awesome when "your people" are able to validate that you are doing well! I spend time with a couple who knew me and the Dooosh for years. I never really "hung" wih the husband until now, and even he recognized how well I am doing.

His exact words were what your friend said, "Purple! You are back!"

Awesome stuff pass. Keep it up!

That is great!! It's always nice to hear when people are healing and it shows!

Thanks y'all!

I still don't feel entirely "back" yet - and of course am hoping for a hell of a lot better than THAT - but it's nice to know I'm on the road.

I can't believe I spent so long cutting myself off from people. It's a fucking crime!
