Newly Single

And, honestly, if one more married or partnered person tells me how lucky I am to be single I might scream.

I’ve been in a long-term relationship. I’ve lived with my partner. I know it’s not all gumballs and rainbows. I know it’s not all fun times. I know that sometimes it’s a lot of work. But I also know the love and friendship and true joy you can find in sharing your life with another person. And those things, for me, outweighed any issues we may have had at that time.

And right now, I do not need or want to hear any opinions on why “single is better.” If you have so many issues with your partner that you wish you were single, you have three choices:

  1. Get some counseling and work through it
  2. Get out of the relationship
  3. Be quiet and be miserable by yourself

Because those are your issues, not mine. And, quite honestly, I don’t want to hear it. I’m not done being sad yet. I’m not done mourning this relationship.
