Thank you to everyone who gave me advice on my previous post.
I ended up having a talk with him, and we are no longer together. He wants another chance, but I told him that the only way that would ever work is if we took some time apart and he worked on his communication skills, relationship skills, self-awareness, and coping mechanisms. And if he is able to gradually regain my trust through a long period of friendship. He agrees that he was being an asshole, and says that he will be working on himself for the forseeable future in hopes of having another chance somewhere down the line. I told him I couldn’t promise him anything, but that even if things don’t work out with us it is still an opportunity for growth for him.
Thankfully, we hadn’t put down any deposits for vendors, but I guess I will have some stuff to sell in the classifieds :p
I really appreciate all the support from you ladies!

I remember your other post…Thanks for the update! Glad you did what is best for YOU! Even though he says he is going to work on himself, definitely get out there and move on. Although people do get back together after taking a break it’s rare.

I send you prayers for peace of mind and for your heart to heal completely for that special person to come into your life and be what you need, expect, and deserve. Now that you are not in that relationship take this time to work on yourself because we all know we have issues about ourselves we can improve on that will make us better people.

Thanks so much, ladies. It was a tough conversation for both of us, but it was the right decision. I am definitely going to take some time to be single and focus on myself. Go dancing, work out, spend time with friends, and maybe work on some hobbies. I truly appreciate the well wishes and send ’em right back to all of you!
