My journey into singledom...
Posted 19 September 2008 - 07:08 PM
Well as promised, I think it is high time that I tell my story. It will probably be quite therapeutic getting it down on paper (well not on paper but you know what I mean!) so apologies if this becomes epic!
I gave the topic the title "My journey into singledom" because it wasn't necessarily by choice and I haven't felt "single" until quite recently...
Basically, in April last year, Craig killed himself by jumping in front of a train. I had moved out 8 weeks earlier because of escalating violence but was still talking to him every day and having lunch with him etc. If I'm being honest with myself I'm pretty sure that I would have ended up going back to him - I just loved him too much and could feel myself starting to believe his promises.
Anyway, so the combined effect of Craig's suicide and everything that went before has really knocked me around over the last 18 odd months.
But on the other hand, I have a wonderful group of girl friends who have shown me a good time and helped me to rediscover Brisbane's night life. I haven't been single since I was 18 (I'm now 26) so that is definitely a challenge. But as they say, one day at a time.

I can not even begin to imagine what kind of feelings you must have been going through, that is an absolutley awful situation for you to have experienced.
All I can say is I hope you are feeling okay, at 26 you have a whole future in front of you, I hope you can start to see some positivity ahead.
If you ever need a listening ear I am happy to lend one, as I am sure many others would

Thankyou for sharing.
