You rock. You've got stuff goin' ON
and that's the best. I would definitely heed rosiemac's words above in that it takes a long time, sometimes longer than expected because we want the pain to go away FAST, and it can linger. Every relationship beats to its own drum, but some bang in our heads louder and longer.
Two Excedrin, bubble bath with upbeat music and kitties and friends. That's what it's all about. Even though I am so far beyond where I was then, with Mr. Dysfunctional-Passive-Aggressive-Money Moocher, I still have visions of him finding me and trying to wreck everything I've rebuilt. But ya know what? Just like the President, I have created my "inner circle" - that fortress took the past 4 years to build and it is a network of friends, family, and resources around the sprawling metropolis of Maple Valley (
) that will fly in formation if I raise the flag when trouble comes. Building my "inner circle" was the best thing I've ever done in my life and although I should've done it at 25, it's in place now.
HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND WONDERFUL CINDY!
