Needless to say, all of this led me into a deep dark spiral. I did somethings I regret, although for the most part the risks I took were rewarding. I slept around, I dated guys I shouldn't have, I got used. I allowed my ex to say things about me that I never should have. People close to me lost respect for me, and I lost respect for myself. I finally started seeing a psychiatrist and started getting on top of some of the psychological issues I've had since I was a child. I started putting myself out there, meeting new people, and hanging out with different friends every week. All of this led to a crazy, crazy, and exciting life.
The stories that I have from the past year are amazing. I was adventurous, I did crazy things, I learned about myself, I met amazing people, and I'm glad that I did the things that I did. I wanted to be able to share all of this, all of these feelings and adventures anonymously, so I created my blog Adventures of a Proud Liberal Slut in order to do that. I have learned SO much from blogging! I have learned more about myself that I ever have before, I have found a hobby that I truly truly enjoy, which has allowed me to have healthy relationships, and I have found that there are many other people out there going through the same things that I went through. If you are going through a tough time, then blogging is just one of many ways to help process everything. I just hope that my adventures help others along the way.
A couple of months ago I met a great guy and we've been dating ever since. Just last weekend he brought me flowers, took me out to dinner, and asked me to be his girlfriend. He really really is a great guy. There are wonderful guys out there, you just have to be patient enough to find them.
