During this time, I have come to truly love myself exactly the way I am, avoiding any negative energy from the media or unkind boyfriends.Then, however, a friend who supported me throughout my entire process apparently came to love and respect my transformation as well.
Now she was dating Anthony – a guy that made her feel good about herself. He was tall, he had a great body, and he had these adorable dimples that came out whenever he laughed. “I keep thinking if I give it more time, I will like him more. But real love doesn’t make you feel so nervous that you may lose your lunch.I really do care about him, but I think maybe this should be a close friendship rather than a relationship.Thanks for the help, —Muddled in Milwaukee Dear Muddled, It’s so refreshing that you were brave and aware enough to see that you needed a time out from negative relationships and junk that was making you feel bad about yourself.It wasn’t long before we were saying goodbyes and it was all so much harder than we’d ever planned for it to be.After he left we kept in touch, and less than a year after he left I decided to do some traveling myself to New York.
