    This Would Be Great

    Start from scratch. Forget all the people who did nothing but bring you down. Find new friends. Meet new people. Have a new identity. That would be nice.

    Last year I left an unsatisfactory, emotionally draining marriage. After 20+ years all of "our" friends were common friends. I left the house, friends, community, all I knew. Moved to a new area and started over with nothing. It's not all a picnic, but overall its great. I've...
