I’m going to stop writing for a little while. Actually, I’m going to keep writing… but I’m not going to publish anything here. Seems the blog is just another matter to complicate my personal life right now. And I’d prefer to keep things simple. Before I shut up, I do have a few things to say…
I realize that I’ve received an open invitation to the Bitter Women’s Club. I’ve no intention of joining (although from time to time it might be nice to be a guest at the Club’s social hour). Anger and bitterness solve nothing. I say that all the time and I’m prepared to live by my words. While it’s true that I hold many fantasies of indulging my pain, true strength lies in restraint and self-discipline. And forgiveness.
I do not hate the man I so affectionately referred to as “Boyfriend”. This did not happen because he’s a bad person, it happened because he’s a good one. He’s a kind, compassionate, loving individual. He has a beautiful soul and he’d do anything to help a friend.
My List Of Possibilities keeps growing. I’ve considered relocating to multiple areas of New England and they are all worthy of further inspection. Or perhaps I’ll stay where I’m at, refinance my house and wait out the real estate crisis while taking classes at the local community college. There are many options (does that count as “optimism”?).
Thank you all for your support and generosity. It has meant more to me than words can express. I’ll continue to surf the scene and my email box is always open.
