🧐 OP who hurt you

I would feel embarrassed before and would still feel weird sometimes like eating alone but now I see it has made me stronger and prepare for this.

You do you. I am glad to hear you do not feel embarrassed or weird and sorry you ever felt that way as it is not something one should feel badly about. Sending positive vibes to you :-)

Glad to hear you’re happy being single, but this is phrased oddly, as if everyone in a relationship depends on their partner for happiness.

Don’t listen to them. I’m happy you found it within yourself and realized you didn’t need others to get there . Very few people allow themselves to get to that point, many will forever jump from one relationship to the next or drown in activities to distract from their reality. Enjoy!
