I was fortunate to find new love very quickly — another reason I was ostracized. His family wanted me to be lonely and miserable for a least a couple of years!

I am pleased you found happiness in a healthy relationship. We owe ourselves that.

Thanks for reading my piece and commenting. Always means so much to read the experiences and opinions of others.

I was always a writer but lived in a bookkeeper’s body before I found Medium and broke free — well, almost. Working to work less and write more.
