I met some new needs. I ran into some unsalvagable red flags. And ultimately, I had to say goodbye and move on. I am in one of those periods of PAUSE I like to write about so much.

I want to be intentional in what I do now

I want to have a genuine relationship skills, to build relationship competence so when I go out there again I can face this with certainty and meaning. I am actually excited for what’s ahead. It can break me but what the hell, it’s still a life worth living. For every serious relationship, there is only 1 person, not more than that. That is the beauty of relationships, they determine the quality of our lives. It’s time to create my romantic story with intent. It is the right time 🙂

But I feel okay telling you that my early adulthood has not been easy. It has often felt characterized less by my successes than a string of traumatic (not a word I use lightly) experiences which I have not always been a willing participant in. This is not to say I’ve never fucked up or made self-sabotaging decisions- I absolutely have. But it has taken me a long time to accept that I have not always deserved the treatment I have received, particularly in a sexual and romantic context. Very rarely, in fact.

That sense of vastness, that life can be what I want it to be, and the startling realization that there really aren’t many rules (if any!) on how to do it properly.

I want to create valuable and meaningful change and I want my life to have meant something to the people that matter to me

The key component to a happy life is ‘connection’ through valuable and meaningful relationships with the significant people in our lives. It’s really that simple.
