The end of something (incredibly) special


I've avoided letting you all know in hope things would change and everything would be okay. However, if there's anything I've learnt from being hurt in the past; it's choosing the right time to walk away.

Me and Andrew decided to go our separate ways a few weeks ago. If something isn't allowing you to grow as a person anymore, it's time to face your fears of being alone and walk away in order to find happiness. Time is the best healer as they say and I respected that. I wasn't the one who initially walked away as it seemed like I was the only one fighting towards the end. I just hoped things would change. I have been so happy this year and I will never forget the memories I have with him but that's all they are; just memories which made me incredibly happy at the time.

It's a really weird thing not seeing someone in the evenings, not spending lazy days with someone, not going for food and not cuddling up to someone at night. I don't have anyone to laugh at the tv with, tickle or share an ice-cream with. We had hard times like any other couple but we had some of the best times aswell. I wish I could thank him for helping me to have faith in another guy again.

It's now October; four weeks away from being our one year anniversary sadly. I will happily admit with no embarrassment that I fell head over heels very quickly with Andrew. I never imagined I would be with him (EVER).. especially as I had known him a couple of years but never really spoke to him. It went from a hi, to a full blown conversation to a relationship and I am grateful for that.

If there's anything I've learnt from the time I spent with him; it's to take risks, ignore outsiders and fight for what you want. It's really sad things didn't work out between us but I guess we all go through this at one point (or a few!) times in our lives and we eventually learn to let go.
