I'm Back, Sort OF...
I have spent most of the last few years planning my life around the boyfriend and I am a little at a loss now that it has been taken away from me. I am finding it a little difficult to think of things that I can do now that we aren't together (other than dating other people that is and to be honest that doesn't appeal to me just now). So instead of doing that I plan to just get by the next few weeks and hopefully the rest will come. I have begun an English literature degree which I am hoping will help. I found languages too difficult to do whilst also working full time. So I changed it to something that I am more familiar with. Which doesn't mean that I have given up on languages. It is something that I will go back to.
Anyway, that is my news. With any luck I will get back into my stitching and reading soon (reading other than course work that is).
I'm truly sorry for you, but I guess better now than in ten years?
We're there if you need to talk. My thoughts have been with you all the time.
Great you're starting this English literature degree! Don't hesitate to share! (well if you want to, of course).
It's been a very long time since you talked about your music too.
Lots of hugs and encouragements.
Kudos to you on the English Lit degree!!! Any speciality?? I love poetry..and American Lit..( modern) there are so many great books out there now...why concentrate soley on the classics? Ya know! LOL
Anyhoo, remember this:
" A Heart may be broken, but that doesn't mean it stops beating."
( From the movie Fried Green Tomatoes)
I'm hear if ya need a friend..
There are no easy answers. I found that, eventually, the passage of time does help a bit but you can't help but retain some affection for past loves when you have naturally put them at the centre of your life.
I hope your road to recovery is as painless as possible and immersing yourself in other things may help take your mind off it. I envy you starting out on an Eng Lit degree. It's years since I actually read Dickens and Hardy but if your course covers these two novelists then I really envy you!
Best wishes, Tim
Hope you feel better soon, I am always here to listen
Hopefully DBF came back.... and is still there, but it was painful to loose a friend, a person I trusted totally, etc...
Think that we are all there for you, and you're not alone !!!
