I need a more upbeat post and I got this idea from someone but I can’t remember who. I decided to add some layers to it to get me thinking about things other than the stuff that has been making me sick lately.
Best compliment I’ve ever received:
I could mention one about my looks or something Erik has said to me but that is boring. A huge compliment that I always remembered was when I was in the car with my parents at the age of 19 when I realized my then boyfriend was going to dump me soon. At this point he was the third to break my heart. My dad, who never really shares anything meaningful with me, said considering all I’d already been through before that I had become really strong. That blew me away, I never forgot that.
Advice I’ve always remembered:
My friend Kat told me once (I don’t think she even remembers) when I was going through like my 47th breakup that I was a complicated girl. She told me that I would need a really special kind of guy that could handle me and give me everything I needed. I think at first this was disheartening because it seemed to me that I would never find a guy like that…but I did 😀 *some words may have been changed, this was like 10 years ago.
Most common advice others give me:
It’s a tie between them telling me to relax and to stop caring what others think about me. Obviously I never take the advice.
Most telling dream I’ve had:
I’ve had some crazy dreams, a lot of pregnancy and labor dreams. Still the most telling dream I had was many years ago when I was in college I had a dream that I was looking up at a man and he was making me laugh. He had no face but I knew he was the man I was going to spend the rest of my life with. I honestly believe it was Erik, as cheesy as you may think that is.
