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!
The best thing about hitting rock bottom is that everything after that looks fucking fabulous
"Keep your face always toward the sunshine - and shadows will fall behind you."
His exact words were what your friend said, "Purple! You are back!"
Awesome stuff pass. Keep it up!
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!
