Surprise Party

I'm headed off to a surprise party this weekend. Shhhhh! Scary thing is my ex will be there as will several of his friends. I haven't seen him or them in many years. I'm feeling a bit uncomfortable but the birthday boy is a close friend so I have to go. I can't lie it feels awkward! I really want to look good. Some of his female friends were always so cruel to me when we were dating as was he. That relationship took a huge toll of me and ruined me for many years. For 6 years I was never good enough, thin enough, strong enough or pretty enough. I'm sure I'll talk about that further when I'm ready. Its been 3+ years and it still has an effect on me and my self esteem. I think I have been feeling a lot of stress about it recently.

Anyway, enough Debbie Downer stuff. I think I'd like to wear something like this. I think it would make me feel pretty. Isn't it lovely?

Good Luck Lady!! Just remember, the reason that you didn't feel good enough... is because he WASN'T good enough! Have a blast, and try not to let him piss you off too much!! :) Victoria

I think the outfit is really pretty and feminine. I hope everything goes ok. I had one of those relationships once also. Even though I love my husband and I'm happy now, I still get a little pang of hurt every now and then thinking about how that other guy hurt me. Guys like that aren't worth feeling bad about! Good luck!!!
