This is a great starting point for me.
I had isolated myself from most of the world except for a handful of what I considered family. They weren’t blood relations but they were my family regardless.
Then we had a falling out Friday. And I was devastated because I felt like I’d lost my ENTIRE support system.
I made a dozen phone calls to other people … and whined and cried about losing my support system. It wasn’t until I finished with all those phone calls that I realized that I HAD a support system. They were the ones who I called and depended on during the stress. They helped me come to the conclusion that my other relationship was dysfunctional. I already knew that ….. but now my covers were pulled and that means doing something about it. So I did, and now I’m okay and grateful for the friends who ARE there for me.
We also came to the conclusion that I needed to “spread myself” around and get to know new people. So that’s what my goal is for the next year. Meet new people, get out of my comfort zone and take some risks.
