... When was I not happy 8P.
What you chose to do was the right thing to do, always stay who you really are. And if you change, change because YOU want to, not if someone else wants you to. No matter how much you love someone, don't change if they tell you to, be the person you truly want to be. :)
No MAN or WOMAN is an island, so be certain you want what you are asking for ..... Then ... GO FOR IT !!!!
Way to go Maxine - stay true to yourself, be independent and never change.If people don't like it they can take a number lol.
