Yesterday was the aniversary of leaving my finacee. I can't believe how fast it's gone. It doesn't feel like that long at all. It's kinda scary actually.

I feel so good about it all though. I know I defnately did the right thing.
I have never been single for more than a month or so, so this has been a big thing for me to be on my own for this long. I am actually happy being single for the first time in my life and it's an amazing feeling.

I have been through so much in the last year and it has made me such a strong, independant person & I can stand on my own 2 feet. I have grown & changed so much. I'm not the same person I was a year ago.

I'm in the process of house hunting & I will be living on my own for the first time ever. I can't wait, I'm so excited.

I just had to share this because I am totally happy. I'm happy with who I am, where I'm going and where I am. It's so good to feel like this!!

Anyway, thanks for listening to me ramble.
Someday everything will all make perfect sense... So for now laugh at the confusion, smile through the tears and keep reminding yourself that everything happens for a reason...

A year certainly goes quick hey, time flies!

Im really glad youre happy Ali, you sound so much stronger and more content and settled smile.gif You've inspired me a little actually, in reading this post, to try harder to be more secure being on my own and not to be in such a hurry to find someone....And living by yourself is great, you'll love it! Good luck in your househunting smile.gif

You just enjoy being you! smile.gif

I feel so good about it all though. I know I defnately did the right thing.
I have never been single for more than a month or so, so this has been a big thing for me to be on my own for this long. I am actually happy being single for the first time in my life and it's an amazing feeling.

It is amazing what you come to realise being single for the first time in your adult life. Amazing how you change and what you achieve in that time too.

Glad to hear you are in a good place with it all.

Well done hun!!
