A Work In Progress..

I am 33 yrs old and I am an underachiever. The majority of my friends have degrees, careers and husbands. I have none of those things. I was so terrified of making poor choices that I found that I was making no choices. What finally made me start working towards my life goals was an ex-boyfriend who basically beat me into the ground with telling me what a loser I was and then dumping me. While the pain of the break up seemed unbearable at the time, it was probably the best thing that ever happened to me. Once i got over my depression, I vowed that no one would EVER be able to say those things about me and be correct. I am now less than a semester away from finishing my bachelors' degree in business and I am working on my career path/strategy. I'm still struggling in the relationship category because I'm terrified of putting myself out there, but baby steps i guess..

Although the abuse was bad, you did what "they" say to do in life and that is, when life gave you lemons you made lemonade. Kudos to you for that. <br />

As far as future relationships, bad relationships tend to give us warning signs, bad vibes and gut feelings right at the beginning. When and if you feel those things, don't push that valuable intuition to the side, use it and don't be afraid to walk away. There are PLENTY of fish in the sea, you don't have to settle.

it is never too late to go for your dreams and goals, many many people achieve greatness later in life...nothing for you to feel guilty about........as for the ex...F him...you are better off without an abuser in your life, he actually did you a favor by leaving..
