Starting OverI 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.
