Weddings were really tough for me too. The vows can be triggery and all that happiness doesn't help when you are hurting so much inside. I hope that some venting has helped you out.
Think of the haters in your life as sandpaper; they’ll scratch you up time and time again but in the end you’re polished, smooth, and spotless..while they end up useless
We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.
If I could make a suggestion: get outside and enjoy that beautiful state. Smell it, look at it, feel it. Walk on the beach, if you can.
I so understand weddings and how triggery they can be. Hugs!!

The conditions we face do not define us. They remind us of who we are and who we want to be.
Know what I realized while I was in the bathroom though? I'm a f-ing dragon. Yup, that's right. I cry pink-sparkly magical tears, so that makes me a goddamn dragon, right? Who cares if it was just the effect of my make-up?? I am a goddamn dragon and I can get through this shit!
And so can you. You don't have to be a dragon, but it helps. Wishing you strength, inshockandhurt.
