Thank You

I started blogging on Sunday, November 11, 2007. My first entry was written from a place of closing a door. A process of saying goodbye to my partner of four years. It was the beginning of growth for me, shared with the world via a tiny spec on a blogger platform in a tiny spec of the internet.  I blogged ever since.

As part of this growth, I began to blog about meeting a new guy, the dating, and the building of a relationship. Fuzzy was written about as our relationship grew, faced challenges, and surpassed milestones. I blogged about being part of a larger whole.

I have not blogged lately about that larger whole. I felt it too painful to blog. The first time in eight years I held back from you, the reader. For this I do apologize. The process of dismantling a relationship is difficult, at best…

I feel like I am back to 2007, writing to you about the process of closing a door. I must begin the process of saying goodbye to my partner of eight years. I step forward to accept the beginning of growth.  I start by saying thank you, thank you Fuzzy for many years… For the good, and surprisingly enough the bad.  Thank you for it all.

Being honest - especially in a public forum - is not easy. I applaud you for doing what you've been able to do. Keep the faith.

Blog for yourself, first and foremost. If you blog more, and more often, it tends to balance out the good with the bad - you have an opportunity to share both sides with your readers. It is also THE BEST form of free therapy you can do! Think about how just "putting it out there" is such a great release; a wonderful wishboard out to the universe. It's a great way to put things in perspective, tell your side of the story, and perhaps even rewrite the past in terms of organizing your thoughts (retelling the story). Best of all, it is even more fun to go back through old posts and see how your perspective has changed, how the story progressed, and see how time has changed things. In the end, you discover it isn't so much that things change... you do. If you are not feeling, you simply are not living, friend. Keep feeling! Hugs, Nick

My partner and I split after twenty years. I like to say we had a good run but we're better parted. I'm sure you had many great times with your partner. Moving on is tough. I wish you the best.

Good luck to you as as you move forward. Hopefully you can find some peace and closure with the present that will allow you to take on your next phase of life. Be well.
