Even when things are shitty…

feeling shittyI’ve had a hard couple of months.

First the boyfriend dumps me via text saying we should “go our separate ways.”

Then the best friend tells me she can’t deal with the drama (to put it succinctly). She is tired about hearing about my break-up.


In the meantime, I am trying to survive. See friends. Get out of my house. Pack. Therapy – lots of therapy. Look for an opportunity to split. Spend time with family.

It’s like a divorce, except I don’t get half and that is fair. All I want is my own stuff.

This post is just to say that I get it, sometimes life is shitty – no nice words to use. Just. Plain. Shitty.


I will survive and so will you. Reach out to your support network or local or national lifelines. You are meant to be here and read this. Chin up, my friend. Better days are coming.

I know it.
