Nellie,
I understand how you feel. I went through that too. Now, I realize that just because things didn't work out this time, I have learned a lot!
that a relationship takes work
that everyone has needs, and even if something isn't important to you, it might be (probably is) important to someone who is important to you.

It has also given me a small amount of HOPE.... yes, HOPE. I know now that I have the skills to recognize things that can cause problems in a relationship, and how to deal with them. And that hopefully someday, I can use the things I have learned and have a happy and healthy loving relationship with someone who will appreciate all that I am.

Ok, I'm an optimist .

It took me a while... quite a while to get to this point. It wasn't easy, but I made it. I hope you will find the bright spots to this too.

Thoughts & Prayers,
Butterfly
(with mending wings)
