  1. “The purpose was for me to evolve”

    Jackie, I love this post and more importantly that phrase. Kudos, sir. As with anything, time passes and the pain dissipates. Memories dull and then you seem to feel nothing for awhile. Then suddenly you wake up one morning and you realize you’re no longer haunted, you’re no longer viciously replaying last words and glances and that you’re well rested. Because you’re sleeping…

    Be easy on yourself and go through the process. :)

  2. I love the eloquence and fragility of your expression. I’ll put a an ocka Aussie spin on it for you…Yeh. It’s a bit bloody shit mate. Sometimes there’s relationships we have that stay with us long after they’re ended. Bizarrely enough it really doesn’t matter how long that person was a part of your life..when you experience that total bliss of mutual reciprocal affection/bond and then its taken away so cruelly…. It hurts so bloody bad. I spent two inseparable weeks with an English guy…last time I saw him he promised to call me..I never heard from him again, didn’t even say bye. And whaddyaknow its over a year and a half later and…pathetically I still wonder, and wish, and dream most days…gees wonder what would of happened if it’d been a full blown relationship. But still oddly enough I think more about the euphorically happy times we had together rather than the bitter betrayal he dealt me in the end.

    ‘I was alone because the person I wanted to be with didn’t want to be with me anymore.’

  3. I feel your pain. Been there, done that.

    Two and a bit years down the line… it get’s easier. Just a little…
