It was brought to my attention lately that two guys I used to date/was interest in have gotten married recently. Both guys are lovely and I know they found their people but there's that sensitivity that people have had with me lately that just kind of annoyed me.
I'm not a fragile person, I don't mind being single, I don't need another person to validate me. Yes I like to have a good pity party with wine and think about how much better I am than the person they married (not true, just a fleeting thought).
I need to make myself happy, I need to be the best version of myself. I'm working toward it. I go back to school in a week, I'm setting my alarm to go work out in the morning, and I'm having adventures I will remember the rest of my life.
I will keep having fun and being a hopeless romantic, if that means I'll be 80, alone, surrounded by gorgeous red purses, honestly I'm going to be OK with that.
As long as there is some good wine.
