I also agree - this website has helped me keep in touch with like minded people, knowing tomorrow can be better and if not it's okay to feel what I feel and still look forward to tomorrow. Thanks everybody and I will try to look at the holiday season as a time I can be with friends and relatives and not all about missing someone who was in my life.......
you're right - I think this year I will be putting out a lot more Christmas stuff, this time it's for me. And as far as friends invites go, some of them are new people. there were past associates I had to let go of (not good for me anymore) and those that let go of me. I am trying to look at it all as transitions, and a new chapter I will make the most of.
thank you GW about decorating for Halloween for one's self - I'm gonna start this weekend throwing some stuff out in front yard. And as far as Christmas - that's gonna be a toughie but I'm gonna find some different things to do in my city to keep busy/occupied/happy - thank God for friends who have invited me over! thanks everybody for your comments - it helps!
Yes, "friends" who care only about themselves move on and we must be open to new doors opening and they will open sooner or later. I lost a sister/neighbor/"friend" who failed to appreciate my circumstances so I have reached out to more positive/upbeat peeps who relate to me
