I Have Changed My Myspace Status

to single. Reluctantly. Because I’m no longer with the person I thought I was going to spend my life with. I’m sure it’s for the best. I’m sure everything happens for a reason. But it’s difficult. I loved her deeply.

And it’s a strange thing telling you all this. Honestly, I’m not sure why I am. Maybe in putting things into words I’m reducing their weight inside me. 
Or maybe I want to try to stop what’s happened to me happening to anyone else.
Yes, a career is important. Yes, being dedicated to your job is important. And even if you’re doing that for someone else as well as you (as I did) don’t lose sight of what’s really important, because all that effort put into making writing a career so that you can be together means a heck of a lot less if you’re not together.
I guess we writers are never all that far from rejection.
But at least my foot’s better. Onwards and upwards.
And that’s all I have to say on the matter.

    So sorry to hear this Nik. No words I can say can possibly help, no matter how much I want to send them. Sending you positive thoughts instead of words.D

    I’m sending you a big hug. There’s not much anyone can say. You just have to get through it the best you can.

    Oh Nik, sorry to hear that. I’ve had a few break ups. They are very hard. Be kind to yourself and indulge in whatever it is you feel like. N x x x

    Nik, I’m so sorry to hear about your break up. As you know I went through a pretty horrific one myself 18 months ago, and whilst I wouldn’t say I’m over it even now, I would say it gets easier with time (the old cliche is true!), and that gradually you start to rediscover all of the pleasures that life has to offer – and realise a few you’ve never even known before. Mail me if you want to chat, big hugs, B x
