Thanks so much to all of you for your support! It has been hard for me, even harder because the night I decided to break things off with both, my baby brother was hit by a car.
So, not only did I have to deal with that, but I had to deal with my Southern, religious family and their ridicule and close-mindedness all weekend. I SOOOOO wanted to call HER (fuck him) and just cry, but I thought that would just start things up again.
I have never felt so alone, but I know it was the right thing to do. So for now, it's throw myself mercilessly into work and take comfort in my beautiful baby nephew. His laughter is the best medicine of all!
There's nowhere to go but up from here.
