I Was Afraid To Be Alone

Hi Dr. Laura,

I went through my first heartbreak 8 months ago. I thought he was the best thing since sliced bread and I was determined to do anything to get him back. He left me for another woman and I was devastated. I thought there was something wrong with me and that it was all my fault.

Just by listening to your calls you helped me realized that I have to love myself first, that I deserve to be loved. Every time I had the urge to call you, I always would listen to another caller first. You  would usually remind them of their own self-worth and that they shouldn't stay in such toxic relationships. I can't believe that I was a woman who was afraid to be alone.

Now, I've embraced myself so much that I don't need a man to make myself happy. I know my self-worth and I will wait for the day to find a man who would love me and respect me for what I am.

Thank you Dr. Laura for helping me realize this!
