All of a sudden, I feel like a huge burden has been lifted from my shoulders. This is not like Endless Waltz where it is the burden of responsibility. This was the burden of pain and anger, especially after semi-recent events. I'm no longer angry. I'm no longer bitter. I'm no longer undergoing self-isolation.
Time to move on.
Went to a 5E party where I caught up on the latest gossip (who's dating who, etc.) Felt good for a while. Want to do more of that. Meeting people. Flirting. Watching other people. Still not ready to date yet, but can still have fun.
