I was leaving.

It felt devastating for us both. The inevitable question, “why?” asked with downcast eyes, and a deep knowing that this time there was nothing to fight for.

The decision was made. Our relationship was over.

It hurts, doesn’t it? That painful point when two people who come together in love, lives entwined, following a rhythm that feels like the same heartbeat, suddenly are separated.

At that moment you break up, you are both changed. For better or for worse you are no longer who you were as a couple.

The emotions are mixed, freedom, doubt, fear, relief, regret and sadness.

I needed time.
