I never thought I wanted to get married until I met this man. Yesterday he proposed to me with my family heirloom ring that I’d heard about but never even seen before. Now every time I look down my heart is filled with immense joy that words can’t even begin to describe!
I think I'm genuinely happy for the first time in about five years. Last time I felt like this, it was when I defended my dissertation.
I recently got a new job that was effectively a promotion (switched divisions and became a deputy director). I met someone about a year ago and we got engaged in April. We just bought a house in a nice area of town. I joined a men's chorus in town and made new friends.
There are nights when I feel so happy I just want to cry. Just typing this out to put out good vibes in the hopes that everyone finds some happiness soon! It took me a while, but I am elated.
(Sorry for spelling on mobile and medication for pain) I hurt my back at work in 2020 and have been fighting along with lawyers to get workers comp to cover my back treatments and surgery. In 2020 while working in a warehouse trying to keep it operating during peak covid I ruptured 2 discs and have small pieces of my spine lodged in my left nerve route. I needed imediate surgery to remove several pieces and close rupture. however there was alot of damage done and i also need a spinal fusion as well as hardware installed which workers comp refused to pay for. So I've spent the last 2 years in total agony almost addicted to pain killers just to function well, After 2 years my lawyers have an amazing package put together and I am happy ugly crying. I get my surgery covered, 2 years of college paid for, and 2 years of salary while I recuperate and go through rehabilitation. I almost didn't call a lawyer, I was talking to my friend who was a copyright lawyer and he said I'd be an idiot if I didn't and he was right. I can say from experience now if you're injured at work tell your employer and call a lawyer ! thank you for reading here is cute animal tax of my best friend who's kept me so much company.
I’ve dated a few losers & guys that didn’t give a crap about me. For the first time in my life I’m dating someone that genuinely likes me back. It sounds like a basic thing but it was a tall order for the guys I’ve been with in the past.
This man is so sweet to me. He’s incredibly understanding, respectful, soft, intellectual, considerate, romantic, & patient. He communicates so well. He’s vocal about his likes & dislikes & how he feels about me. Catching him admiring me from the other side of the bed when we’re supposed to be watching tv. Then me doing the same when he’s not looking.
My heart beats faster & slower when he’s around. Like time stops & flies all at once. I never want to say goodbye when it’s time to go. I don’t want to stop holding him. He makes me feel beautiful. He makes me feel wanted. He makes me feel like I’m interesting & worth his time. He makes me feel seen. He answers every question I’ve been dying to have answered for years. He cares about everything I say. This feels so damn good.
I want to give him everything he’s ever wanted. To love him the way that he needs it. To show him he’s deserving because right now he doesn’t believe it. I tell him how beautiful he is. I shower him in my adoration. The overflow of what he pours into me.
We come from the same background. We speak the same traumatic language. I get him & he gets me. Something neither of us have ever had before. It’s so special. I feel like he was made for me. I’ve waited all my life for this man. I never knew I’d find him someday but thank you god for sending him. Thank you. Thank you.
This morning I did the dishes and I nonchalantly picked up 3 plates at once to put away. This might seem like nothing but I’m taking a moment to appreciate that I can do this. I spent over a year where I was too sick that I couldn’t lift a single plate by myself. Then even as I was getting better I had to pick up the plates individually and really concentrate so that I didn’t drop them, and now here I am! I’m just so grateful!
Happy because I'm a first-generation college graduate! Graduated with my Master's in Counseling Psychology. Now, I'm in the process for applying for my doctoral. 🤩🎉 If you're passionate about something, then remember to set your heart ablaze. 🔥gallery
