Wow – It has been nearly two years since I wrote a post. I have read several emails and comments asking where I went. Well, when I walked away from the toxic relationship I was in I walked away from the blog. I couldn’t sit in the dark feelings.
Lots has happened though in that two years. I finalized my divorce, settled my custody issues, started a new career, bought a house, got myself in counseling — AND I did not date anybody. That’s right I worked on me. It wasn’t a conscious decision to not date. I literally shut down. I just didn’t find men attractive for a long time. I think my mind knew I needed the time to heal and recover from years of toxic relationships – including my marriage.
The biggest thing I learned during this hiatus is that I actually like being single. My life is calmer. I enjoy my children more. I deepened my friendships and spend more time with my family. I find that life can be rewarding and fulfilling as a single person. I know longer look to a man to define my worth.
However, I have recently stepped back into the dating world. I decided to write again, because I want to share a message of hope for those of you I know are struggling with toxic relationships. I want you to know there is something better, once you break the cycle. Also, I have discovered I am pretty bad at dating. I need advice. No seriously – wait the posts are coming.
Glad to be back 🙂
