I feel like it's time for me to get back into the relationship thing. It's been long enough, and I've put my love life on hold while I was healing and while I was aiding the children in their healing process. I don't miss what I had when I was married, not by any stretch of the imagination, but I do want someone to share my life with. My next relationship will be very different from what I had because I know so much more about myself and love than when I was 19 years old.
Now I will enter a relationship with my eyes wide open. My choices will be very different than the way I did things before. People may or may not like what I choose, but that is okay because I have learned that I am in control of myself and my life. I have the right to choose for myself, even if others don't agree. I will not be controlled again.
So, cheers to myself for taking the next step in my healing and choosing to have relationships.
