Feeling better

My boyfriend finally moved out last week and finished getting his things out on Sunday. I was really sad to see him go, but am already feeling better now that he's actually gone and I can start to heal my heart a bit. I also switched rooms with my roommate to give myself a new perspective as well. The room is smaller, but there are no memories of Tony here. Plus, now I have my bookcase in my bedroom, which is not only comforting, but will hopefully give me motivation to start reading that full shelf of TBR books. Thanks to all of you for your kind words. It really is wonderful to have a community full of people who can offer advice and love when it's needed.

I start a new job in the morning and school starts next week, so I'll be busy, but it will hopefully help take my mind off things enough that I'll want a good book to help me escape.

Best,

Becca

Somehow I had missed your last post, but I read it now - I'm so sorry you had to go through that. I'm very glad you're feeling better, though. Hopefully school, the new job and being able to start anew will help you even more. I also have a hard time reading when things in my life are hard, but one thing that often helps me is revisiting old favourites.

I'm hoping the other changes and work will help get you through this!

its good to get a new perspective on things. Here's to escaping into the TBR pile for a while.

I'm glad you are starting to feel better--I really hope the new job, room and semester start well and bring you newfound friends and happiness!

Big changes... but the change of scenery sounds like it will be good. Can't wait to hear about what you're up to. Heart-healing takes time, but don't worry, it will come.

I, too, had missed your last post. I'm sorry things are rough for you now, but I'm glad to read you're doing better. I find it difficult to read too, at the moment, and I don't know how to deal with it either, so I can't offer you advice. Hopefully things will be better soon.

Congrats on the new job.

Change is a good thing. I'm glad the changes you've made are helping you out in this tough time. Good luck with the new job, how exciting! :)

(Even the word verification sees peace in your future, it wants me to type in "doves".) :)
