What I Learned After a Year of Being Single

I feel that this title really explains everything I will be talking about today, so let’s just dive in to the interesting parts that you’re here for.

I’ve always been independent. I went 19 years of my life doing well on my own, never needing anyone, and generally getting by on my own skill, wit, and ability. To me, dating was just a luxury, because I don’t need a man.

What I learned being single

And then I had my first real, serious relationship and it ended in flames a year ago. It was traumatic how upset I was then, because I had indulged in that luxury enough I had thought it was a necessity. A year later, I’ve come back to my senses. The part of me that I lost in that year and a half relationship have come back, and I couldn’t be happier. And it’s reminded me of why being single is kind of the best.Read More

Just Some Words on Breakups and Relationships

I wanted this to be funny, but then I realized that I’m adding insult if I do, so it’s kind of sad and just very emotional. I apologize in advance.

I’m a hopeless romantic and I fall hard. I fall so hard that when it ends I struggle to get over it. That’s what this is. It’s an open place where we talk about something that people don’t talk about – breaking up.¬†We live in this culture when when a relationship ends we are told immediately to get over them and move on. You don’t need them in your life and it’s time to flit to the next relationship on your path of finding your one and only. And I think that’s what happens when people do break up, they get over the mourning as soon as possible and find someone who will make them feel awesome.

But isn’t the mourning kind of important?

This is very true and shows us that there is so much more going on, than we recognize or acknowledge :( ! Missing my Bestfriend :( It mattered to me , time doesn't matter ... Fell hard , fell fast and hurts like hell. TS: Read More

How to Deal With a Breakup

As I told my mother, “I’ll write a blog post about it and then I’ll feel all better, just like everything else that happens to me.”

So that’s why I’m writing a blog post about my breakup.

After almost a year and a half with my boyfriend, we’ve decided to just be friends. No hard feelings, no anger, just two twenty-somethings who are onto the next adventure in their life. But that’s not to say it isn’t hard. Any time you lose someone who you felt a strong connection (romantic or not) it is incredibly hard on the human heart and that means getting some recovery in before going onto the next phase in life.Read More
