Quick fixes will get you half-assed healed…take your time. Let it run its course. I know it’s not what you want to hear, but grief is weird. The process is not linear. Some days will feel like you’re over him completely. Others you’ll break down in tears after sex with someone else without warning.

Be gentle with yourself. Don’t have unrealistic expectations. Allow yourself to feel whatever you feel and at some point he won’t be the first thing you think of when you open your eyes after that split second of cruel relief…I always hated that the most.

That never happens anymore. But I’ll still get pangs of regret from out of the blue.

Sending healing. The heart takes time.

I still don’t know what I want to be when I grow up, but I know I want it to be spelled right and punctuated correctly. I guess that’s something.
