Post-Break Up Update

The weekend was really difficult. I basically holed myself up, let myself grieve for the loss of my relationship with K, then got very angry and today am starting to find peace. Slowly.

I threw away the toothbrush he left here and moved the few pictures of him/us into a folder of a folder. I've told all my closest friends about what happened. And everyone has told me I am better off. Which I know I am. But still, as with anything difficult, there's a process of going through all the emotions. (And to be honest, this is the first time I've had my heart legitimately broken. It's a horrible feeling!)

I spent $4.18 for dinner at In-N-Out on Friday with two friends, $37.87 on groceries (including my favorite ice cream and a $5-per-lb. bag of my favorite cherries), $13 on a few items at the pharmacy and $16.95 on a yoga mat that I have already used once.

And readers, thank you! All your kind comments have been nothing short of amazing! :)

The first weekend is the hardest (right?), and I'm sure you are truly better off, even though it hurts.

Best of luck in the next few days/weeks

You are definitely better off! Friends are a great judge of what is good for you when it comes to partners.

It sounds like you are in a good place. Being angry is the first step to being okay.

Ugg, the first-time heartbreak is the worst! Especially for drama queens like me - I think things like: I'll never find someone else! Guys are scum, woe is me! (I'm only kind of kidding here) But here's the thing: you will find someone else, you will feel better, you will get over it. In the grand scheme of your life, this is SO not a big deal.
