Not sure if you noticed but I'm finding it a bit hard to blog these days. My seven-year relationship, older than this blog and which I have written so glowingly about in the past, has just ended. Honestly, I'm feeling lost, exhausted, confused, and sadder than I remember ever being. It's like something living cozily inside my chest for seven years was yanked out and left on the ground to die of exposure.
Oh, but don't worry. I'll be alright. I'm sure that there are worse kinds of loss, of pain, and this one is something we all go through at some point. "Live through this and you won't look back," said my favorite song. I'm just taking it one day at a time until I don't have to make an effort anymore.
I've never been one to wear my heart on my sleeve online so I will leave it at that. :) I just wanted to let you know, because it's easier not to dance around the issue like it never happened. Actually, the usual emails and comments I receive from you guys are helping more than you can imagine - they remind me that I still have work to do, places to go, new people to meet.
