Starting Over

I recently lost everything I considered important in my life- my girl, my job, my friends, my family, any shred of confidence I may have had left.

I spent a year mourning the death of those things, and the death of who I had been until that point. I needed the mourning period, and I'm glad I had the opportunity to take it. It allowed me to re-structure, to decide what was really important to me, and how I wanted my life to be from that point forward. I've decided that a large portion of my life is going to be dedicated to making the lives of others better any way I can.

I'm still jobless, but hope to change that very soon. My friends are still gone, but that leaves me opportunity to make new ones. And I've come to realize that I actually enjoy being single and enjoying "friends with benefits", rather than being tied down in a relationship. I look forward to beginning this new chapter of my life.

Your outlook is refreshing and encouraging. This is indeed and opportunity to focus on yourself, which at times can get foggy when surrounded by so many distractions like friends and a girlfriend. I wish you luck with your job search and hope you find peace. :-)
