Goodness, look at you go! It's really kind of you to volunteer your free time to reply to so many people here. Thank you!
That said, as a kind reminder I always like to say: "Self-care comes first." It's ok if you ever grow tired or wary of this topic of DV.
Lots to catch up on, my friend. Hope all is well with you and your boyfriend - I missed out on so many posts here and am completely out of the loop. These days self-care and living in the 'here and now' have felt really good. But it is always a treat to revisit this place, where Steve and you and so many others helped me when I most needed it.
Hey Janine, No need to thank me! I do what I can. I was given so much support here, that I just want to "pay if forward" in a sense.
I am doing pretty good! I take care of me, lots of time to meditate, have "alone" time to find my peace and inner joy. I take breaks and try really hard not to fill up my calendar with too many activities.
My guy and I are doing pretty good too. We are both enjoying being single, we each have our own home and time to recharge alone! So good!
I moved over the summer to a new place, one that got me away from the negative, violent apartments I lived in. I have a beautiful new home with lots of natural light, high ceilings and peace and quiet.
You sound really good! Missed you and your insights!
I am taking breaks. I can tell when I have had enough or something is out of my league so to speak! So good to hear from you!
