A handful of times in my life now I've experienced the oddity of losing a whole whack of friends all at once. It happened when I quit drugs, happened again when I decided to go to college (and take it seriously) and it happened a third time when I met my amazing husband. What all of those things have in common is they are prime examples of me getting my shit together. Getting organized. Becoming happier, and healthier.
But apparently a lot of people don't like that! Can't handle it, for their own personal reasons (that aren't even worth trying to figure out--let them go sort it out in therapy) and then you find yourself on an island of one without a clue where the hell everyone went. Except, I finally do know where they went: they have their own little island and it's called THE LAND OF MISERY (and it loves company). And now that I'm trying to eat better and exercise, it's happening again (sad).
So, I'm hoping for a few new (actually active) friends here. If you're looking for a new friend who doesn't make a bunch of lame excuses for herself and is actually trying to lead a simple, but happy life, then maybe we'll click? I'm a supportive person to my friends but I won't coddle people who just want to complain but never try to change anything for the better or take responsibility for themselves/their situation/their own happiness.
I mostly post about my newest adventures in finally learning how to cook, a lot of nature and pet photos, and I'm a huge horror fan. I'm a professional writer who is low on freelance work and am currently taking great pride in being a housewife. I am a feminist. I believe in and respect a woman's obvious right to work in ANY field she chooses, and I also respect all the moms and homemakers out there, equally. That's what feminism is--the right to choose and having respect for each other.
If any of that appeals to you, go ahead and add me. :)
(I've kept my journal very small for years now so I can really read/know my friends, but I guess most are moving on to "real" social media sites and I miss having stuff to read everyday!)
