When the depression I was in became too much to bear alone, I turned to the internet for solace. I couldn't stand to be around people. It was just too painful to be subjected to the disapproval and/or disappointment I saw in their eyes and heard in their voices. So, I decided to see if I could strike up some friendships online. I joined MySpace. I thought it would be interesting to talk to people from different countries, so I did searches and picked people (men and women) from all over the world. I just went upon their faces. If they looked kind and open, I requested them. As fate would have it, one of the people I picked was the man I was destined to fall in love with. The man who would rescue me. My Prince Charming :) He did just that; he rescued me. But, in the process, he taught me how to hope, how to believe and, most importantly, how to love myself. For the first time in my life, I saw myself through another person's eyes and actually LIKED what I saw. It was the greatest gift anyone has ever given me. So, I flew away from all of that horror. I came to England to be with my Prince. In the process, I lost my family. I had left my faith behind (NOT my faith in God, I'm referring to my religion) and because of that, my family (except for my two younger brothers) have cut off ties with me. I'm shunned. This is a constant source of pain for me, but I recognize that it is their problem...their decision. I made the one that was right for me. My partner has opened my eyes to SO many things. I realized very soon after I got here that I was extremely naive in many ways. My personal growth since then has been a source of joy and pride to me. Graham and I have been together for 4 1/2 yrs. and it has been the most amazing experience of my life. My only regret is that we didn't find each other earlier in life. I would have loved to have had a family together. Unfortunately, that's not how things worked out. Nevertheless, we are quite content and enjoy spending every available moment together. So....I guess the moral of this story is to NEVER give up. ALWAYS believe that things will get better....and most of all, always know that you CAN fly away. Just make that leap and grow your wings on the way down. ♥
