Ah, Thursday is here again and the weather finally cooled a bit after an awesome thunder storm last night. It’s now 86 degrees with a breeze. I’ll take it and I’m thankful.
Today would have been our 9 months together, and today I’m celebrating not getting super depressed and doing what was best for me. Our relationship had been falling apart for a few months, especially since he had a wandering eye. I made a post on Facebook and this is what I wrote:
I broke up with Tommy on Monday, after he pulled away last Thursday. While I tried, his Asperger’s made it extremely difficult. I was often doing all the compromising and I felt like a babysitter. This was his 10th time pulling away in 8 months.
I feel more relief than anything. All I can say is that I hope that he finds his way. I’m grateful for the lessons and growth from 8 months together. Upward and onward.
I received a lot of nice comments, I’ll share a few with you:
We learn from our relationships. Sending hugs. I am glad you are looking at it in a positive light
(My reply: Heidi, thank you. Since I went through something really traumatic almost 9 years ago, he really helped me learn how to trust and open up to others.)
Hugs! I know this was tough for you to decide and am happy you’re feeling some relief. Exactly right, upward and onward
As long as you’re okay! I know he meant a lot to you, but you have to take care of you first! I’m here if you need to talk
I’m thankful for all the kind words. I’ve cried many times in the last few months, especially when I found out what his wandering eye was capable of, and now I just feel relief. I’m grateful for my courage.
I’m still chatting with Brian and we’ve been chatting a lot for the past three days. We have a lot in common and I’m grateful I met him.
I’m also thankful for family, friends, and co-workers. What are you grateful for today?
