I wrote a little bit ago about my impending break-up with a man I'd been with for almost 6 years. Since then as I said in the post, I have broken it off. It was "easier" then I thought it would be, it didn't blow up into a big fight like I had imagined. We both realize I think that we just are becoming two different people. It's so difficult though & I find myself reaching out to every angle I can.
This is the longest relationship I've ever had. I know it's for the best, I don't need to hear how it was the right decision because I know it was. The biggest issue is that our lives were intertwined in so many ways, especially because we lived together & shared the majority of our lives together. Bills, the house, pets, families. I was very close to his entire family, his mom was closer to me then my own mother in so many ways. She was there for me through a lot of tough times. She promises that wont change, that she'll always be there but it's hard to have the same relationship, at least right now.
So right now I'm detached from those people, living on a friends couch (who I'm very grateful for as she's the only support system I have right now here)..everything's just so scattered. How in the world do you get through this & remain strong?
