I broke up with Simone. The relationship hasn’t been great for a while, and there were reasons and plenty of blame to go around. But she treated me so poorly in the last month that even friendship isn’t an option now, and that’s sad. I’ve never gone out of my way to stay friends with exes, but I’ve never completely shut anyone out after a breakup until now.
Maybe it’s just a shock and it’ll hit me in a few days, but I’m more relieved than upset over it. Either way a lot of people have offered company and couches and phone conversation, so I don’t feel alone, and I’m much less scared than I’ve been in a while.
