day 55 still going


Hey all,

It is yet the start of yet another weekend. We had some snow this week and it finally feels like winter. Today is day 55 and it feels like the time has flown. I still can't believe that it has been that many days!

I am feeling somewhat down right now. I found out a few things about 2 of my exes. The both cheated on me and are now "bragging" about it on various social networking sites. It really pisses me off and turns me away from further relationships! I know I wasn't perfect, but (obviously) they weren't angels! Anyway...just venting.

Jes

Congrats on day 55 Jes!! Keep concentrating on yourself and getting better, then I'm sure everything else will fall into place. I'm just over 70 days and I have had alot of ups and downs. But stick with it and the brighter days will come.
Kind regards

55 days is good news.

Sorry to hear about the bad news. I know how much that can hurt. But there could be a much better person for you down the road.

Keep moving forward, and leave those cads behind You're on your way to a life way beyond your wildest dreams.
Not to minimize your hurt, because I know it does.

Way to go on the 55 days, Jes!

And as far as your exs's bragging: What they did is nothing to brag about. You should be bragging that you don't have to deal with yo-yos like them anymore!

Thanks everyone. After some much needed flirting last night at work and a good nights sleep I am doing much better!

On to day 56 . . .

I feel like I am being really needy, but I guess I should get this out...

I guess after all that i found out last night I am feeling really lonely right now. I won't drink over it...because then I will just have to go to the bathroom alot and I will still feel lonely. But I wish I had someone to feel close with. I suspect most humans want this but, damn, this feeling really sucks.

Eh, tomorrow is another day.

Thanks for listening

Hi Jes,

You're doing great! Be proud of your new life.

Take a little time to work on your recovery and get to know and love yourself better. The right person will come along and you will be ready.
