Excluding the Auld Lang Sine Auntie played at midnight, the following are the first two songs I heard to begin my new year!
As evidenced by the second musical choice (though it was purely by happy accident that I heard it on my way to work), I've decided to not be jaded this year; specifically, about relationships. I've come a long way from the girl raised by shitty parents in an awful relationship. Learning to not be like them is always a struggle, but I made a lot of headway in the last year alone! I intend to keep my high standards and, you know, for the lonliness I feel sometimes, the idea of possibly never finding someone who meets my standards sits just fine with me. Because, in the end, I'd rather be happy, alone, who I am than in another bad relationship with someone who doesn't deserve the time of day from me. Sound high falooting? Well, think of it this way: don't we all deserve to be in a happy, meaningful, healthy relationship? So why not hold out for it? Barring that, I'd rather be happy and healthy "alone" with family and friends that love and respect me.
Yea! I just adore growing as a human being! Don't you?! *^_^*
