My 10 year relationship with my partner ended last night and I have found myself single. The break up didn’t come as a surprise. Things have been not good for the past month or so (perhaps longer) and whilst I was willing to try to patch things up, my ex had moved on and found herself someone else. That part really hurt.
However, the timing couldn’t be worse as I fly out to Germany in 8 days time to compete in the Gay Games, then again time away from all this might be just what I need. When I get back, I’m moving out of our place and fortunately some wonderful friends of mine have offered to take me in until I get my life sorted out. Untangling our 10 years together is going to be rough and no doubt painful – I’m really not looking forward to that part.
I’m trying to focus on the positive and look at this as an opportunity to re-evaluate my life and stop putting off all the things I have wanted to do.
But honestly, this just fucking sucks.
