Thanks for coming with me, Abby!

I owe this photo to my 5-year-old self. She was a miserable kid who was afraid to sit on Santa’s lap. She feared he would say she was too disappointing to get what she wanted. She felt unworthy.

It doesn’t matter why I felt that way, or why it continued. I forgive those who taught me to be afraid—whether you were taking advantage of a situation or thought you had my best interests in mind.

Now, I choose to know the truth: I love myself and I’m worthy and deserving of love and respect, just like everyone else. Here’s to happiness.

Friday Drabble – Hazy Memory

30 Sep

A drabble is a 100-word story.  Write your own 100 word stories on Fridays, and tag them with “friday drabble”. This is my first.

The ceremony was quick. We threw rice at the happy couple.

Another happy couple. I couldn’t remember much that happened afterward—funny, considering it was a summer spent trying to forget the past.

I recall a beach surrounded by libations and laughter aplenty. Dee and I chased a jellyfish with sticks like little kids.

Flash forward. Next bar, bachelorette party. We weren’t invited. An unimpressive douche bag got my number, I never called back.

I awoke topless on my bathroom floor. Hopeless.

Dee sent a photo. I don’t remember doing this. Hmm, I wonder if Arthur Fonzarelli needs a wife?
