I’m so glad you enjoyed it, Laura!
It’s difficult coming out of a long-term relationship. I’m really happy to hear that you are working on finding something better and healthier for YOU!
I can say from my own experience that the work doesn’t end, but I see much growth in myself from 4 1/2 years ago.
Keep it up — create new boundaries and habits! And continue to work on stepping away from someone when it becomes clear they are not into you.
Wishing you much success as you navigate your new reality!
