    I just fell in love with this post.

    You deserve all the happiness in the world, your words have so much power, more than I’m sure you are aware.
    Beautiful, loved it.
    A bit emosh, not gonna lie.

    I have really enjoyed reading this post. I am in a relationship now, but I look back on my time of being single really positively!

    Loved this hun! It’s always good to look back to see how far you’ve come and to know that you can get through the rough times for the good ones!

    I love you, Vix. Was smiling all the way through this post. Until I got to “sheux”, anyway, I had to google those.

    Cannot wait to see what the next year holds for you!

    I can barely read the text in this post – it’s so light! Have you changed the text colour lately?

    I feel like this is a letter I need to have sent to my previously single self too. But then I guess with her, I wouldn’t be where I am today.

    Brilliant post as always! Especially loved the line ‘Don’t change how you look, how you operate, how you spend your time for anyone that needs you to change.’

    Although I’m happily married now I do look back on my time being single and appreciating how much I learnt in retrospect

    A letter we all should have recieved at some point in our lives! I look back on past relationships and I just want to shake myself and drag my idiot self far far away from them!

    Aw I absolutely loved this. I wish I had read something like this a year ago. Funnily enough. I’ve commented on your blogposts before, you might recognise the name. I spilled my dramatic dating life to you about the P.T I met on Tinder who picked me up and dropped me like a hot potato.

    Well I took your advice to stay away from him.. and tossed it aside, and learnt the hard way that he was in fact, a lousy piece of cheating chlamydia ridden shit.

    In your words, I bin emoji’d him. Deleted tinder. Focused on my job. Got bored one night. Re-downloaded tinder and ended up swiping right on the best person I’ve ever met. That was July last year and we are still together.

    I struggle with depression too and was prescribed anti-depressants last year. But with his positive outlook constantly in my face, it changed something in me that has allowed me to reduce my dosage. He sits with me and loads up sporcle quizzes on his phone when I wake up at 3am having a panic attack and even runs to the local sainsbury’s to get beans even though I’ve already told him “I’VE GOT MORE THAN ENOUGH BEANS IN THE CUPBOARD MICHAEL, FOR THE LAST TIME I DON’T NEED YOU TO PICK ANY UP ON YOUR WAY HOME FROM WORK”.

    Life gets better. You don’t need to change yourself because someone that bloody loves the fact you can tan a who season of Stranger Things in a day is out there. I wish i knew this last year. and i hope someone in the place I was last year will see’s this (but in the meantime, I’ll share it with all 12 of my twitter followers @littlethrift_).

    I read this and felt worried, because I’m literally doing the opposite – re-entering singledom after 4 years with someone wonderful, living in a flat I love and being my happiest self.
    I felt that originally, but then I reminded myself that relationships help you grow and learn about yourself, but this doesn’t go away just because you’re not together anymore. I’m a completely different person compared to 4 years ago – thank you for the inspiring words!
