The Breakup Post

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.

Amen! To friendship. I'm sorry it didn't work out. It's true, sometimes love just isn't enough when other important factors are either missing or in play.

It is good to put your past behind. Experience help us make better choices in the future, hopefully. You will get stronger and more capable to face the future challenges of life.

I feel ya babe! It never does any good to put the negative out there. Stay with the positive and keep moving forward. :)

It helps sometimes though. For me anyway....to let your frustrations out and to vent! you're right thought, there are people you can talk to and get it out, but sometimes it helps to have your place to do that! You could write on paper that might help. Oh well. But I agree w/ pink...keep moving forward like you do!
