Just wanted to send some extra (((HUGS))) your way!!! I think you're doing just fine.....you could have just sat home and missed out on having a good time.
No, instead you are going out there to show him that you are still living even though he's done quite a job on your heart!! And who knows....you may end up meeting somebody else.
I think your outlook is great....starting school and a brand new chapter of your life. You are going to be just fine, my Irish Rose
I know it's still not easy but the more you think about the good things that lie in your future the better off you will be. Someday you will look back on all of this and realize how it played such a major role in making you the happy woman that you are. You just wait & see!!!
Meanwhile...you go out smiling and have a terrific time.
And the idea of not drinking tonite is a mature and good decision on your part.
((((HUGS)))) ~ Goody
