It is with a heavy heart that I make this post today.
Something has happened in my relationship with DF that I never dreamt would happen, but at the same time, in fairness to her, it is understandable. She has decided that she needs some time and space to sort through her life. All of you who have read our blogs in depth know everything that we have been through together and how much her life has flipped upside down. As much as it pains me to say it, she is not ready to be in another long term relationship.
I realise that some of you are privy to information I shared with you one on one, but that is really irrelevant to us. I think that aspect of things only served to prove, in some respect, what was ultimately needed by DF: time.
DF and I are going to remain friends because neither of us can just walk away from things. I'm not pretending that the pain has gone away because it hasn't. It's hard to make the sudden change from having my life planned out with someone I love deeply to jumping back to give her space. It will take time, but hopefully the pain will ease.
I appreciate all of your support and hope that none of you will harbour any ill feelings toward DF because of this, as I do not.
I have set up a new blog, but will not be deleting this one. I merely changed all of the posts to drafts and will leave everything as is. If you'd like to be directed to the new blog, please email me or leave word here.
Thank you all for being a part of our journey together. It has been an incredible time for me and I wouldn't change it for anything.
