Finally, I got up the courage and tell my significant other that it’s just not working anymore. I worked really hard at keeping it as enlightened as possible and focus on the positive aspects of the decision. that, I believe, it what kept the conversation in a rational and not overly-emotional shout-fest.
As expected, occasionally I would get some comments that were far from polite. I am doing my best to keep it civil till I can move out. There is no hate, there are no ‘unforgivable’ actions. This is merely a choice and one which I believe is in my own best interest.
It is not going to be fun over the next couple of weeks, while I try to sort out where it is that I’m actually going to live, and it scares the hell out of but I have to have faith in my choices and walk bravely on.
I will so need a lot of emotional support in the coming months over this.
