Everyone is getting engaged and married...while I'm becoming single.
I know I shouldn't let this bother me..but it does so I'm just going to let it out.
Everyone around me is graduating college, getting married and buying homes. While I'm getting a divorce, moving back in with my parents and just now starting college at 23. Every time I get on Facebook I see everyone going through these major life events and I'm happy for them...but it makes me feel bad about myself. I'm getting older and I just feel like time is running out.
I got pregnant at 18. I felt like I had everything all planned out. I knew other girls at my school who were also pregnant and their boyfriends left, were dead beat dads and their life was messy. I had an amazing man beside me who absolutely adored me, worked his ass off fo his family and was the best dad I've ever seen. (He's still a good man and an amazing dad, we just weren't right for each other.) I honestly thought we'd be together forever...I didn't think I'd be the one with the change of heart 5 years later. We got engaged at a young age while everyone else around us was still single. Now most of the girls I went to school with that were single, pregnant teens are now married and buying homes. I'm very happy for them. It just feels so weird being on the other side of this. I'm also seeing other people I went to school with on Facebook becoming parents and settling down..some people I never pictured as a parent haha.
How can I stop comparing myself to others? Do any of you ever do this?
