Congratulations, Coco!

It seems like it was only yesterday, you were receiving your Tweenerville Wings.  You've stayed the course and been a power of example to others...and now, here you are, a SuperTweener!  I hope you're proud of yourself...hah..that COULD sound 

I hope you are doing well, and hope you will pop in to receive your wings and let us know how you are doing.  I really miss you around here.

I think I might be a few days late, but I was away.  September 13th was your actual arrival date, right?

Oh wow! It passed and I didnt even think about it! Yay! Thank you very much, it feels like a medal when I put it on :smileyhappy:

Still reading here, Clarity you are an AWESOME CL just truly brilliant.  I dont post as I feel I have gone a bit dormant inside myself, no drama, no tears, no urges, in all honestly I go through patches of ruminating but I work hard at stopping myself and reflecting on how far I have moved on. I feel I ought to be 'passing it on' but I dont feel confident that i have the answers...  My biggest achievement, for myself, is to stay single (for well over a year) while I unravel all that is going on inside me.  In the past I have leapt in to reationships that I had no business being in and I now see I was avoiding working on my "issues" by doing that.

One thing is it means he was the last person I was intimate with and I kinda wish I could wipe away that 'stain', but mostly I am enjoying time and learning to focus on myself. The panic has gone too, being in my mid 40s and feeling the last chance saloon has closed is pretty ridiculous and I dont feel like that anymore.  EAS and all the posters have been a transfroming and life changing experience.

I would like to add to any newbie the same refrain that is constantly posted here: IT WILL BE OK and do the work AND LIFE WILL BE BETTER! Honest honest honest.  Just have faith, ride the roller coaster, listen to the tough love without defenses up, take the soothing and take the tough, if you feel defensive then I think it points to a sign while the message is a hard one  it needs hearing and listening to because it has touched something in you.  To me it feels like my synapses have had to be restructured, how painful but how positive in the end... right sorry am rambling now. Basically thank you for marking this milestone and Clarity thank you for being so...THERE

Glad you checked in!  I think you are doing the smart thing...unraveling yourself before seriously dating.  It's always best to allow some time for healing and we don't enter into a relationship ladened with baggage...I mean we all carry a little baggage, I suppose, but there's a big difference between a suitcase, that won't even fit in the upper storage compartment...and a cute chic cosmetic case :smileyhappy:

You sound good...and that medal looks good on you, too.  And thank you for your kind words.

Again, welcome to soooo deserve to be here.  There's no doubt in my mind that we'll be welcoming you to Vetville next March :smileyhappy:

Congratulations on a milestone in your journey.

I know how hard it has been at times, but I see that you "get" it.  It's tough, I agree, but you seemed to have a open mind that does you well.

My best to you in your continued journey.


We only miss what could have been. I know I don't miss what it really was.

Hi Coco!

A huge congratulations for reaching Super Tweener Status. Its a great place to be - things kinda even out from now on, and I could read as much from what you wrote that things are going well for you.

You have come so far - and its a lot smoother sailing from here on... and your right what you say to all the newbies - things just keep getting better.

So proud of you! Well done!!!!


Every recovery is a kind of rebirth
