I Know You Will Understand

Bumpkin on a Swing suggested that I take another pause.  She said that it would be good for me.  I think she's right.

I've been out and about with friends every night.  Because that is what you are supposed to do. 

I smile and laugh and carry on.  Because that is what you are supposed to do.

People hear that I'm single now, and they tell me that they are sorry.  I say "it's for the best".  Because that is what you are supposed to do.

People hear that I'm single now and they ask me out.  I don't want to go.  I don't want anyone new.  But I feel as if I should.  Because that is what you are supposed to do.

But not here. 

This blog is my world, and here I get to say and do what I want.  Only....I don't have anything to say right now.  So I'm going to take another pause, and when I find my smile again....I'll be back. 

Your heart just breaks, that's all. But you can't judge, or point fingers. You just have to be lucky enough to find someone who appreciates you.

Do what you need to sucks. It really, really sucks.

Ummm...I didn't mean you taking a break sucks! I meant what you are going through sucks. Was nervous you thought I was being a real bitch!

You are totally making the right choice!! You don't have to be worried about doing what other people expect you to do right now, you have to worry about making sure you're alright!!

Please know you will be missed and please know I'm thinking about you and wishing you well. If you ever need to talk, please email me!!
You were one of my first blogger friends!! (Just a random side note, but important nonetheless!)

That was some post.
I am catching up after being down and out and terribly sick and I am sorry. But know you did the right thing.
As someone told me a while back- look out for #1...Do what is best for yourself. I'm sort of going through something similar. I respect and greatly admire your courage.
Treat yourself well!
