My ex and i had made plans to meet next week for lunch. Well, we started discussing those plans today, and she asked me what my intentions were. That turned into a conversation that’s needed to happen for a while. I put her through quite a lot, and no matter how great we’re doing individually, she told me she’d never be able to just look past that and start fresh.
We’re officially over, and that conversation was really pleasant. The most honest, sincere, open conversation we’ve had in the last two months. I’ve finally accepted that we’re not getting back together. We have such a great rapport that we’ll likely try to maintain a friendship months down the road, but for the time being, we’re going to give each other every ounce of space necessary to heal and grieve properly.
I’m really grateful that we had the conversation, and the closure.
It’s so painful, of course. But at least now, I’m looking forward instead of back.
Any support would be nice. As grateful as I am for the closure, it still hurts more than words can describe.
