OT: Feeling Blue
I know I probably shouldn't be feeling too sad, but I just broke up with my boyfriend (we had dated for almost three years). I know that the split is for the best, but right now it's very difficult. Unfortunately we're just two very different people and although there were good parts to the relationship, I know that it's not enough to go down the road and have a happy marriage. I've been married once and went through a very difficult divorce and hope to not have to endure anything like that again. I know, there are no guarantees and it's a risk that I have to be willing to take if I want to be in relationships.

It's hard to concentrate on much right now, but perhaps my knitting will help.

sorry to hear that you are blue. It probably is for the better. You don't want to waste your time on something that won't make you happy.
Hang in there!!!

You are wise. Remember when it gets hard that even when a rotten tooth is pulled, it leaves a hole.

You are clearing out your life for the right person.
gentle hugs,

Think of how you will feel a few years from now. I look back on the people I had been with years ago and it makes me feel like I always made the right decission. I'm not saying it's easy though. Best wishes to you.

Break-ups are always hard -- even when you know it's for the best. Be extra good to yourself right now.

I'm very sorry for your loss. It sucks, I know. But you did what your gut told you to do and that is always the right thing.

It hurts so much, even knowing it's the right decision.

Good for you that you have the strength to know when it's time to move on. My mom has been going through a hellacious time with a fellow she's been with for 8 years... she's very protective of her heart having a divorce after a 25 yr marriage to my dad. It's like seeing her go through it all over again. But only you know what's best for you..and you wouldn't be human if you didn't feel bad about any breakup. You give your heart to someone and whether they break it or you ask for it back, it still hurts.
Take care and hugs all around ya here amongst the KH knitty-pals!!
