Think of your recent misfortune as an auspicious sign. If you hadn’t hit this bump and just carried on as usual, it almost certainly would have exploded in your face at exactly the wrong time! As it stands, you have plenty of time to fix whatever isn’t working and get yourself back in the game. Be grateful for this downtime. At least it gives you a chance to take care of business with somewhat less pressure.
An insightful friend may have the solution to your current conundrum concerning ways of the heart. Ask for advice on how you should seek someone worthy of your time. Be open to suggestions and try them without worrying about instant results.
Being the life of the party might not be your bag, but you can still add to the scene by just being yourself. Your main squeeze doesn’t need a grand performance to know you’re the star.
You’ve learned at least one important lesson, albeit the hard way. Now that you know all that glitters is not gold, take that wisdom and put it in your mental vault.
