While happiness awaits you, it may take many years for your current difficulties to mend. Expect agradual recovery from your problems rather than a sudden solution. You may well find your friends are your best source of support. If you are considering committing to a relationship, this would be a very good time, as the relationship is likely to be long-lasting and successful.
An impossible chasm seems to be set between yourself and another. Yet this gulf can be bridged. Be honest about what you feel, and see if such honesty brings a change on the other side. Even if it does not, you will have acted appropriately.
