    Default The letter I never sent

    I wrote this back in November, but didn't send it, just kept it for myself. I don't need to send it anymore, and am really ok, but wanted to share it with you as the difference between how I felt when I wrote this, and how I feel now is immense.


    Lorna,

    Wednesday you helped me cross a bridge; I guess I need to thank you for that. Your words were cold but helped me realise many things. One of the major things was that you really aren

    Stephen my friend,... you will get there, you truly will.

    Right now I can say I am glad we broke up,.... I never thought I would ever say that, but she is not what I need or deserve. She is far too selfish to spend my life with, and I only see that now. With the time and space away from her, it's made me stronger. I feel free, I feel alive and I am once more excited about my life as it unfolds.

    You'll get here mate, and when you do, I'll be waiting for you with that ice cold beer

    Dan, every time I start to feel myself slip, I go and read pretty much any of your posts. I think you help me feel tougher by just being you. And for that, you are truly a fantastic human being.

    I'd like to join in on the beer if it's not a guy's only thing.

    LOL....Im in! CHEERS...I am going to have to have Dave take a look and figure out why I no longer have the capability to use these emoticons!

    Dan I am very happy and proud to see the man you are today...your story is another true inspiration to all on this board....although I have only had four months into my relationship I have all kinds of emotions that I have gone through, finally Saturday letting it all out and that was because of your help.....I hope I can sit down one day and write what I have penned up inside, not allowing myself to acknowledge because I am determined to win this and OH I WILL!

    It is so much easier being on the other side, listening and reading what others situations are and what they are going through and offering whatever I can to help them through. I am now on the other side and in another four days I will be able to start to cross that bridge and come out a HAPPY, whole woman again....

    One day I will write that "shoebox" letter, that day will be the day that I too am indifferent...numb and have no feelings one way or the other....for now, I am taking these days one day at a time, pushing negative, sad thoughts out of my mind and focusing on the positive....which my friends there are ALOT!

    I have always said and I feel "I do not need a man to define me as a woman" but I do want one to "share" my life with.....not just any man, a special man! I am NOT going to settle and neither should you!

    I wish everyone the best in life and love.

    HUGS,

    xxSPHYNXxx



    Everything will be ok in the end, if it's not ok, then it's not the end

    Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world.

    HUGS!

    Kelley, bless you, your words brought tears to my eyes,....not very attractive to sit here in my dressing gown with those tears!! LOL. Seriously though, thank you, I really appreciate your words and am glad my posts help people

    As for the beers,...anyone can join, of course All of us are kindred spirits anyway, as Stephen mentioned. Uhmmm, pssst, actually I don't drink and hate beer, but saying 'ice cold diet coke' didn't really have the same ring to it

    Have a lovely day all.

    Diet Coke works, Dan. You can put one of those little umbrellas in it or something to make it festive.

    Because that TOTALLY wouldn't be girly at all...
