Surround yourself with those who... are already surrounding you. The ones who gently sway you into showing up.
I do not want to go. Why would I go. Why should I go.
Because you are still Laura. Laura loves love. And food. And alcohol. And flowery decoration stuff. Because some moments will feel like a dagger to the heart, but other moments will not. Because, think of how strong you'll feel once you tough this out.
Surround yourself with those who, (seemingly sans conscious thought) will provide you with an unflinching forearm to claw throughout the ceremony.
Surround yourself with those who will raise their glasses in toast to the fact that you didn't let your unrelentingly queasy stomach win. On the grass. In front of the beautiful bride. Can I add that to my resumé?
