Ok, so Amy died. I killed her myself. I know… This was sad news to many. (PLEASE get over it.)
Starting the 7th grade, she went by “Amy” because she was sick of being called “Oooyen Nagooyen.” Amy was a butcher-proof name, and people loved her. She was nice, funny, sweet, innocent–dumb really. She actually believed in love… The everlasting ones. She wanted a forever kind of love. Poor girl was born on Valentine’s day. It was a curse so I took her out of her misery at age 32.
But before I did, Amy met her “best friend” (who became her husband) at the sweet, young age of 19. She instantly became a step-mom to her sweet spiritual baby Kiana at the age of 3. (Kiana was and still is, the best gift of all.)
At 21, Amy was killin’ it in her career, and “decided” to have a baby at 23. At 25, she had her 2nd baby, and by 28, she was a mommy of 4.
She was always on the fast track and wanted to have it all. Until one day, her dad passed away at 63. It killed her. He was her real best friend and she hasn’t laughed the same since the day he let go.
Weeks later, Amy was crushed with more bullshit. Her husband had someone else. “Was she prettier than me? More fun than me? Smarter than me?” were all the thoughts that haunted her mind, as they each broke her spirit one by one.
Amy questioned everything. Why did I sacrifice my career? Why did I trust him? Why am I not good enough? What did I do wrong?
A friend played therapist diagnosing Amy as “being too nice” so Amy was asking to be cheated on. (WTF?)
Compelled to Amazon Prime the best-selling book: Why Men Love Bitches, she decided not to given in to bitch-mode—there’s a surplus of those in this world and it’s simply not her MO.
So she decided to be herself and stay true to herself–so much so that she decided to kill Amy and revert back to her legal, birth-given name: Uyen. And since the divorce was looming and her last name would be returning for good and for life, it only made sense be the Uyen Nguyen aka Win Win she was born to be.
So that’s how it all began… At 32, I killed Amy and brought Uyen Nguyen back to live. It’s been a killer rebirth–painful at times, but overall, my rebirth has been killer. TYSM for being a part of it.
