How I Moved On After A Long Term Relationship
Ending our almost 10 years
relationship should’ve made me mad at you. Should’ve made me hate you. But instead, I want to thank you.
Thank you because I am constantly learning new things about me that I never would’ve imagined I would do when we were together. I’ve always stayed in my comfort zone because I felt secure. As introverted as I am, that was something that I automatically desire. But now I am saying yes to things I normally decline to.
Yes to unli cocktails on a Wednesday night even when I have work tomorrow.
Yes to running a marathon when I don’t even exercise.
Yes to karaoke night when I don’t even sing.
Yes to wakeboarding when I fail on every sport I try.
Yes to a spontaneous Boracay trip that I don’t even know about.
And yes to wearing a 2 pc swimsuit without covering up when my biggest insecurity is my stomach.
Others may say these are just plain and boring. But to me, they are my subtle adventures.
Every after adventure that I take, I keep on telling myself how proud I am of me.
I can honestly say that I am happy and am very proud of who I have become.
One thing for certain?
I will continue to say YES to things I normally decline to.
