    And I Feel So Much Better About Myself

    I ended a mariage that was slowly driving me crazy. I still love her but she is no longer my responsibilty. I feel so great about breaking it off. I guess I still have to do all of the official paperwork, but we are now separated. Why I didn't do this sooner, I do not know. I...

    It Happens

    I did not end it, I urged it to happen. My ex and I were not in a healthy relationship. We barely talked, we did not show much affection to eachother and we have been growing very distant. So yesterday I decided to talk to her about it. I told her I do not think we will get...

    It's Over..

    I wrote previously about John and his inability to communicate and be open emotionally.. Well, it's been a rough couple weeks. The truth is, we are both jaded from our time together. We'd become hypersensitive to each other to the point that it was a good day if we didn't bicker...

    It Was Wonderful In the Beginning...

    But after 2 1/2 yrs of being the "other woman", my dignity is shot, my self-confidence is non-existent. He did move away from his wife, but still hasn't separated bank accounts, served divorce papers or even stop paying all her day to day expenses. I feel terrible...

    I Tried So Hard But In The End It Doesn't Even Matter, So I Say Goodbye

    So, what is a friendship, to me it is a mutual exchange of not only pleasantries and each others current happenings, but also effort, mercy, caring, compassion, and trying to understand the other person. Well, I opened a door only to see nothing on the other side, or far less...

    #21 Is It....

    Ok. Attempt #21 to cleave Dave from my life. I think that this one is going to be THE one...because it is different this time. This time, HE was the one who ended it. Gave me no choice in the matter. He said: "its time to let me go..." And, of course, he was correct. It was way...

    I Need Support-- I'm Sooooo Weak-- 24 Hrs Since Ending Relationship

    Ok, it has been exactly 24 hours since I sent an e-mail saying "I am done". I just got a "good night" e-mail from HIM saying that he is clueless as to why I am doing this. Really??? Clueless? Gee, I wouldn't think that it would take Sherlock Holmes to figure it out. Anyway.... I...

    Been Used

    It's hard to tell why, but I think its over...when forced to say what I felt, as I could not take the abuse. I put it as a greeting message on my phone...took me about one hour to record what I felt...should have written it out first.

    Contemplating #19

    I think that it might be time to try Attempt #19. I am not angry, or upset, or needy right now. I feel like I am moving further and further away from him-- needing him less, thinking about him (a little) less. I just don't know if it is too soon-- maybe I should wait a while...

    Here We Go.... 17th Attempt

    Ok, here we are on the 17th attempt to end my unhealthy relationship (it is the 16th or 17th). It has been two hours and 10 minutes. I have no illusions that I will be successful this time. No, that won't happen. I am weak and I will give in-- most likely in a matter of hours...

    #20, And Counting...

    It's been two hours. I have not talked to Jerk Off, or texted him, or responded in any way. Two hours into my 29th attempt to break free of this unhealthy, and unsatisfying, relationship. We had a little tiff over the week end, and a discussion of my discontent on Monday. It was...
