A break up has normally just broken me, but this time I'm feeling empowered, and not just the words of. "I love you, but I love me more." It's...well I woke up yesterday morning sobbing knowing that today would be easier. I guess I didn't realize just how much easier. The usual histrionics of beating myself up and name calling was very short lived and even as the words were coming out of my mouth I knew they were wrong and misdirected. Yes it was a year of my life, but it was a year of immense growth. I had wanted something else, but got what i actually wanted instead. I was able to change a horrible pattern that I've been living since time. How could i make alternate choices if i didn't know they existed and I needed to take this choice to the end to see that it does not serve me, it isn't right and never want to do it again. Easier way? Maybe. I just didn't know it. I didn't even set out with this in mind. It just happened. Positive perspective? Sure. But doesn't mean it isn't true.
