Thought I'd dust off this old thread and throw some updates out.
I used this thread when I was quite down about my break up with my girlfriend 2 years ago, got made redundant around the same time and was really lost with my place in the world. From there I did a lot of personal growth and focused on what I wanted to be and what kind of energy I let into my life.
Now my new girlfriend is moving in to my place this weekend, we're going to build our own place at the end of the year. We exist as individuals but support each other completely and it's such a fun and rewarding relationship. I have never felt supported or empowered by a girlfriend before so this is fantastic.
Work wise I've been killing it for a Bank, working my way through promotion after promotion and will views of getting as high as I can (not a drug joke)
I'd just like to say to those that are doing it tough and mentally struggling that things do get better, sometimes life is bloody hard and you can't see a way up but it does get better with the hard work. How it worked for me was reinvesting time back into myself and taking control of my own happiness rather than letting others dictate that.
I'd also like to thank the lads here for their complete lack of judgment during that time and the support shown. Big ups boys!
