Hi. I am so sorry about your break up. Did you see it coming? How are you doing. Rest in the loving arms of our Heavenly Father. How long were you together? It can be so painful. I can not say I understand as I never was in a relationship. Do think this was a good idea? I will pray for you.

Thanks so much for reaching out, it means a lot! We were together for a bit over a year. But yes, I saw it coming as I initiated the conversation of parting ways. It's a long story, but essentially I have been jumping from relationship to relationship for over 5 years & have been running from a lot of things in my past, namely wounds from my father, that continue to interfere with me having a healthy relationship with a man. It just keeps coming up over and over and causing self-destructive and hurtful behavior. God has been calling me for years to be by myself and letting Him heal these areas & just rooting myself in Him, but I have ignored it for so long. I'm finally taking the opportunity to discover my worth without a man and let God move in this season. It's difficult and a big change for sure, but I definitely have peace about the decision and think it's the best thing for both me & my ex at this time. So I'm doing alright! Thank you so much for checking in, I really appreciate it <3

Hi. I think it sounds like a good idea to take some for yourself and heal and reconnect to God in deeper way. It very well may be a great new beginning for you. God is pretty smart. He usually know what is best for us??? I hope this time of reflection helps you see how much God will fill your longings and emptiness. No man, woman or friend can do that. God designed us to need Him but I think you already know that. You are such an inspiration to me and many others. Thank you for sharing your journey with us.

Sleep well. iwanttolive

Thank you so much for your support & encouragement-- I agree that His ways are higher than our ways and He is always working things out for our own good and for His glory. And yes absolutely, He wants to fill that void in a way nothing or no-one else can. Thank you so much again for reaching out, I really appreciate it <3
