Taking a Stand


Remember this post from the other day?  Well, it's done...the post-it has been delivered.  Ok, so I didn't actually leave a post-it note, since that wouldn't have been possible :)

Text was the chosen form of communication.  I realize more and more how texting should not be a major form of communication.  I completely misinterpreted the "tone" in his messages.  In the end, it didn't matter, but it still got a little confusing for a quick minute.

Part of me feels better because I know I did what needed to be done.  I finally stood up for my values and my needs.  I put myself first and decided that I wasn't going to settle.  Bravo me, right?!


The other little part feels broken.  That's only normal, right?  I had to end something with someone that meant something to me.  And it sucks.  Big time.  And honestly, it should have been done a while ago.  I should have listened to my gut a few weeks ago instead of falling a little more and more.  But ultimately, I could only let go when I felt the time was right.


So I keep giving myself a pep talk.  Reminding myself that it's ok to be a little selfish and what I feel is best for me.  It's been a bumpy road, this past year.  But I finally feel like there is air in the tires and the road is turning to pavement instead of gravel.

  1. Break ups, no matter how much that person means, are hard. They suck. I recently broke up with my best friend. It was so toxic. I had no choice. It hurt, I miss him, but it was what I needed.

    Good for you for sticking up for what you need. We hardly ever do that as woman!


Thanks for taking a minute to send me a note! How I love a little love!
