Well it’s been a few weeks since I’ve published a blog post, but that’s actually a good thing. The past month or so has been completely eye-opening for so many reasons.
I’ve learned how to be me again. I feel that I’ve somehow become the best version of myself, though I’m not entirely sure how that happened. I’m just happier. I don’t sweat the small stuff like I used to and I find myself wanting to be around people more. I’m engaging, comfortable in my own skin and mostly looking for the silver lining in every situation.
For example, I went for a (embarrassingly short) run yesterday and came back to my apartment building to see it lined with police and fire trucks. Gas leak. On my floor. A firefighter told me to stay outside for the time being while they found the root of the leak. Instead of letting negativity take over, I thought to myself “now I can squeeze in a longer walk.” Who is this person?
Dropping the dead weight (cheating husband and cheating friend) has done wonders for my mental and emotional state. I’m honestly the happiest I’ve been in years, even when he and I were in a good place. Funny how that works.
If you’ve been following my blog posts, you have an idea of how much this past winter has absolutely sucked for me. I was at my lowest of lows. I would have never dreamed that I would be where I am now. I just feel so light!
My advise to anyone who is holding on to their dead weight. Drop ’em. Drop ’em like a hot potato. It’s terrible at first, BUT you will transform to a completely different person, with time. Please take what I’m saying to heart. If I can do this, so can you. I’m just an average person going through a shitty situation.
This is your future speaking. Act accordingly. Find the respect for yourself to do this. You will not regret it!
