I came across the photo to the left here, and it made my brain fluids churn for a bit.
About six months ago I broke up with my partner of seven years. The breakup was terribly hard on me. I am not a person who enjoys being single nor do I enjoy living alone, and the prospect of having to re-enter the market in search of a new partner seemed daunting. Even my writing productivity suffered for several months. But it’s amazing how the human mind makes adjustments to change, and I am finally feeling like my old self again.
I don’t know how long it will be before I find a suitable companion to share life with; it could take a couple of years, even. But I intend to persevere. We should never succumb to the fear of change, it’s what life’s all about.
