I just wanted to take a moment and thank all of you who have given me a sense of direction and support as I have maneuvered through the stress of a slowly failing relationship. Thank you all so much for being pearls of wisdom while all of this was happening.
I just wanted to give you all an update as to what has been going on.Last night, the 4year relationship that I had with my SO ended completely. We had a very long, and civil (thank god), discussion about what we wanted out of our lives and where we saw ourselves in the future. Unfortunately, our individual plans for our futures did not include (very much) one another, and we did what we thought was best. We decided that we shouldn’t see, talk, or associate with one another. He didn’t like this option, but I stood fast and told him that it was the most responsible and healthy thing that we could do in this situation. I explained to him that it wouldn’t be good for either one of us to attempt to “move on and get over” the other while attempting to remain friends in any way. So for the foreseeable future, he and I will be nothing to one another.
I fervently hope that one day he and I will be able to be around one another without invoking feelings of resentment or sadness for either party. I hope that he finds happiness and success in all things that he pursues – and I hope the same for me. I hope that both of us grow and become better people, and take this relationship (successful overall) as a learning experience for future endeavors. For Him and Myself, I wish nothing but the best.
For those of you that have followed my posts, you know that I have been fighting Depression (the ruthless B**ch), and have been making several strides in the right direction. I have moved out and have made drastic changes to my personal lifestyle so that I can become a better person. This experience (both the depression and the break-up) have opened my eyes to the realities of the world, and has shown me how strong I can be.
I just wanted to let all of you know that the support and wisdom that all of you have showered me with will not go unanswered, and I will make myself a prominent figure here to help others as you all have helped me. Thank you all for being such wonderful Bees, and thank you even more for being honest, heartfelt, and supportive.
With Much Appreciation,
