I love how when I try to go against my instincts and be nice for a change you encourage me to be myself.

A close friend of mine just sent me the following email. Her sister is also one of my closest friends.

The three of us all were rather similar in that we haven't dated much/were a little innocent/let others dictate how we felt about ourselves/often asked, "When is it going to be our turn?", etc. etc. etc.

She read this self-help book called Finding Your Half Orange...then I read it, and it's such an awesome little dating self-help book. She met this LOVELY guy after she read it, and I met him and thought he was wonderful and she was so so so happy!

But her email still made me smile...

Quote:
I wanted to let you know I broke up with my boyfriend
on Tuesday-- he basically pushed me to it. I'm really fully doing ok --- of course I'm incredibly sad, but I really am ok because he made it easy on me in many ways; I wasn't being treated well enough. I have been trying to take better care of myself and build resilience for months, and I think that truly has helped.
My mom and family is actually relieved -- as a big part of me is-- because they know how bad it was and that it wasn't healthy, and this week really became that way.
So I'm doing ok. I just wanted you to know. Because in all honesty, finding my "half orange" has been truly - and i mean TRULY- loving and respecting MYSELF enough to know that the way I was being treated wasn't right, even if parts or moments of it were and even if the first 6-8 months of it WERE perfect. He just had issues that he had to work through on his own but I didn't deserve not to be treated well while he was doing that, esp when I was supporting him so much.

I just wanted to reach out too at this time and say LOVE YOURSELF. I really didn't even know the meaning of that as much and as clearly as I have these past few weeks and few days. I am ok and healthy now because I loved myself enough to get out of something that wasn't healthy for me (he didn't hurt me; but he did emotionally severely hurt me - it's not an excuse that it was because it was due to his own self esteem issues).

As I was telling my sister, I just really want us all to have a spark in 2013 - new year, new us, just TRULY, 100% LOVE YOURSELF. And then once we do that, we will always, always, always be ok.

Everyone else can tell you how great you are -- you are, I am, my sister is - we all truly are. But it's when we truly, 100% believe it OURSELVES and that we deserve love and can give others love, that's when we'll be fully ok, present, and happy. I already was happy. and I can say I truly 100% love myself and enough so to end something that was causing me so much pain due to things I had no control over.

Do whatever you can do to love yourself. I am going to keep doing that too.

A lady from my old church died from cancer last night. She was such a sweet, classy person. I know that at the end she was in a lot of pain and ready to go. I feel so sad for her husband, though; they had been married a long time but were the kind of couple who were still head over heels for each other after many years. He must be devastated.
-----------------
I started looking for "big boy" beds for Davin's birthday in April. Man, there are a lot of cool options for kids these days! I'm really digging the loft beds with the built-in desks, especially since they have rails so he won't fall out. What a space saver! Some even have built-in dressers. He'd have so much more play space that way (his room is the smallest of our bedrooms).

I SURVIVED. I SURVIVED.

It wasn't that bad.

Although, springy, when I looked up from typing my first post, I saw someone in what appeared to be plaid pajama pants. Although, to be fair, I wouldn't have won a clothes prize myself.

nyn, I saw those loft beds when we went to look at cribs for E! We ended up getting a cheapy crib from Ikea because we knew he wouldn't actually use it all that much or for very long, but I think we'll splurge on a nice big boy bed when the time comes. You'll have to update with pics if you get one.

Well, if you were actually wearing any type of pants that is considered dressed up, so I bet you were just fine.

So true. Walmart is pants-optional.

Leggings count as pants, right? RIGHT?!

Just kidding. I had actual pants on. I swear.

Haha! I'm working at Banana Republic right now. We had a 1/2 Pants special the other day. I was at the cash register. A coworker came over to me and said, "This lady is buying leggings. She just argued with me that they count as pants. Just give her the discount. Whatever."

So, I was so traumatized from having to go there that I forgot the damn discount card. I couldn't figure out why it was so expensive. I suppose I could go back and see if they will give me the discount, but I just don't think I can bring myself to do it. It's not like we need to eat or anything.

I'm not entirely sure it's the right shade of red.

It sounds ridiculous, but I am so close to getting my biggest loan to $10,000, and the thought of how fast I can whittle that down is amazing. If I get rid of that loan, I can think about affording an apartment in NY by myself. I can think about actually opening up a place. I'd still have one more loan to contend with, but it's the lowest interest and with this one out of the way I could pay it off that much faster.

Saria, that is not ridiculous. That is exciting! Way to go.
