Rough week...

Thursday, April 17, 2008

I'm in the process of ending an almost three year relationship. This will also come with several life changes, as I'll be moving back to my home state (Pennsylvania) and transferring to a new college. Even though this is a mutual decision, I've been a wreck and I'm just trying to not take this out on myself. I haven't been eating enough and I certainly don't want to go to the other extreme to cope with my stress. So, I'm counting on you, Spark People... to keep me from going off the deep end.

    Hi Laura,

    Sorry to hear you've been having a rough time. Hope things start to get better soon and that you have a great Memorial Day Weekend!

    The one constant thing in life is change... and change is frequently difficult to deal with. But in making changes we grow and challenge ourselves and we become stronger in the process. You are a very strong young woman. Give yourself permission to grieve the losses - it's human - and then move on to the future with renewed optimism and with the great, "can-do" attitude with which you began your transformation.

    We're all here for you...

    I'm so sorry that you're struggling right now. I know it's difficult when drastic life changes come into effect. It's such an odd feeling leaving a long relationship because your entire life becomes so different. I wish you the best of luck and keep your chin up!

    Ugh, I know that a relationship that's gone on so long is completely wrenching to bring to an end. I feel for you, I really do. Just know that everythig will be okay eventually. You're clearly a very strong person. Good luck with everything! emoticon

    We are here for you - FOOD is NOT! It does NOT have your best interests at heart, it does not love you like we do.

    Just come and vent - or cry - or rage. Just don't eat!!

    (And Keep Moving Forward!)
