Many of you who are regular readers have noticed I’ve been largely absent from this space for the last few weeks. The short version of what’s going on is that after more than five years, T and I are parting ways. It’s definitely one of the hardest and biggest things I’ve ever gone through, but both of us really feel that it’s right and it’s time – we’ve tried really hard to make things work, and while we both still love each other a lot it’s been apparent for some time that we’re just not right for each other. I have to say, I’m really proud of us for being able to have what feels like one of the most mutual and mature breakups in history – there’s no anger, no accusations, no big fights, no sides. Only a lot of sadness that we couldn’t make it work, but definite hope that we’ll be able to stay close and remain important characters in each other’s lives in the future.
On that note, I’m struggling a little with how to be in this space, one that, while it’s been my own, he has always been a large part of the background of. I think I’ll be able to work it out, but expect to see some changes around here soon and know that it take me a little while to get back to a regular posting schedule.
Also, because it’s been the most common questions our friends and family have been asking – he’s currently looking for a new place to live and I’m planning on staying in the apartment, although that most likely means I’ll be needing someone else to move in. More updates on that [hopefully] soon.
ps. Sorry if you know us in real life and hadn’t heard yet – we’ve really been making an effort to tell people more personally but it’s just been hard to get to everyone.
