Well, it was. I spent an hour writing up the longest post in the history of blogs. But then I re-read it and I realized - "Geez, people are going to think my ex was the devil incarnate." And I don't want that. He's not a horrible person. And I'm not a horrible person. It's just that together, we don't work out. We develop issues as a couple, and we each have individual problems that contribute to the mess.
I don't want to write about what I think is wrong with him and me, and us because 1) I don't want to tarnish the good memories, 2) I don't want to emphasize the flaws, and seem like a vindictive ex, 3) in the case that he reads this, I don't want to hurt him. We've both been hurt enough, 4) if I absolutely have to vent, I have family and a therapist I can talk to, 5) there are people who might (although probably not) read this blog that know both of us personally, friends or co-workers, and it's really none of their business (unless we feel like talking to them face to face).
So this is the last you'll hear about the breakup. I want to move forward and forget the past, and embrace my ex as a great, and hopefully lifelong, friend. So here's to friendship.
