2012 in review

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

19,000 people fit into the new Barclays Center to see Jay-Z perform. This blog was viewed about 110,000 times in 2012. If it were a concert at the Barclays Center, it would take about 6 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

I feel like I am at the Oscars or something; I want to thank everyone who made this possible! I don’t dare start naming names because for sure I would forget someone important. And as much as I thank the people who commented the most; there are people who maybe don’t comment as often, or have the time to visit as often but they have said just the right thing at just the right time and gotten me through another day. Every time someone said,” Thank God I found this blog, or have” I thought I was crazy until I came here” I am encouraged to keep going, keep proving a person CAN survive and thrive after a narcissist

The last while that I haven’t been able to reply to every comment the rest of you have picked up the ball and carried it wonderfully; giving encouragement and love to each other. The ones further on in their healing journey encouraging those just starting out. Reading the exchange between all of you has brought tears to my eyes more than once.

Thank you all; I wish I could throw a big party and hug each and everyone of you for real.
I love you!!

      I enjoyed reading this blog since my recent exit of a 7 year stint with a man I thought was someone else. My goodness those true colors sure do get brighter over time !!! Good news is that I am slowly awakening to the realities and accepting the facts. I am happy to have recently read some blogs on what makes for a good woman and have discovered that I was one when he came along and charmed me in, continued to be one during the relationship, and this mending I am daily working on within myself will make me an even better woman in the future. It’s about me now…not him…yay !!! Everyday it gets a little easier and he crosses my mind less and less. I know it was NOT my fault and there is nothing I could have done different to make the relationship better. Can’t make a difference if the well is empty and the other person honestly just doesn’t care. So hard to wrap your head around that part. But for me now…I have definitely learned a valuable lesson, and life is just that…we are always learning as long as we have the will. All the best to everyone in 2013. Onwards and upwards ! Cheers !!!

    Hey Carrie, hold you face to the sun girl, you are an amazing woman. This blog saved my life, for so long I thought I was the crazy one. Reading others stories which were so similar to mine helped me face one of the darkest times I have ever been through….and you gave me strength to keep trying to go forward. Good luck with the new job, your a winner !!! Hugs xo
