Relationships and Shit Shows

If I can write extremely honestly about anything lately it's relationships.

I've had my fair share of shit shows over the years. Up until my most recent relationship, I'd been cheated on by EVERY boyfriend. My latest breakup was very difficult. He is one of the best humans I know. We spent more time together than a lot of marriages. He was and is my friend.

But at the same time I knew for a long time there was a lot missing and we both needed to go separate ways. It was the single most difficult decision I've ever made. It was very hard and I second guessed myself for years of what was the right decision while we were still together. But towards the end I knew what needed to happen...as most of us do know the right decision. We just stay in situations b/c the latter is difficult.

In the months that followed, my entire life started to change. I found my solid friend group in Columbus. I started saying yes to more things I wanted to do. I went out with new guys. I started feeling the way I'd always imagined myself feeling. I started feeling myself again. I started living again.

These past 6 months have been a whirlwind and there were a lot of lows but also a lot of good. Mainly the good.

My point is you won't get to the good without making changes and without going through some difficult moments/days/months even.
