- Wedding: June 2013
I know the emotional thread is typically for help with problems and troubled emotions. Just thought I would shake it up a bit and post something about a happy emotion. Got engaged. Wanted to get married quickly, so planned the whole thing in four months. A miracle since I knew little about weddings and had to learn quickly. Got stressed. Suffer from big time social anxiety anyway and the thought of planning a party, being judged and center of attention was a nightmare. Knew I didn’t have to have a wedding – could elope – but also thought why shouldn’t I have that wedding day we all dream about? THE DAY TURNED OUT ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL! When I walked down the aisle, it felt like I was in a beautiful garden. Outside and weather cooperated. Reception was like a dream, too. Many people, even a couple of chronically negative, critical, people told me the wedding was beautiful. Imagine that, a shy person like me being able to pull it off. So happy I will always have the memory of that day!!! Hoping for the same for all of you who have yet to get to the other side.
