I'm still fairly young, and I know that. But I'm a big believe in Souls, and I feel that I am an old soul, and I can handle this.
I have my mothers blessing, so that's not an issue. She even helped pick out the ring!
I am, however, terribly affraid of criticism. I know that it's bound to come in a situation like this, but I don't know if I can handle it.
How do I tell people about my engagement without getting weird looks?
What do I do if some of my other family members don't approve?
