KNITTERS-DELIGHT

Life Update

My boyfriend and I broke up last night. I moved to San Diego to be with him after a long-distance relationship while I finished my Master's Degree. We lasted six years. I'm very sad about this and am not sure what to do moving forward. We had a rocky and rough transition with me moving here, and he's decided it's too much. I frogged my Fifi and have not had the energy to even consider a new knitting project. So much to think about. We live together. I've stayed at my friends place, but will have to go home tomorrow and figure out what we'll do. We have cats and fish together and a life that we worked on combining this past year. If I seem down in the dumps, please bear with me, this is going to be tough for me.

Oh, sweetie, I'm so sorry to hear that. I know this is a tough time for you, so many things up in the air. Don't worry about the knitting, just take care of you. Six years is a long time, it will take some time for you to grieve and be able to move on.

Susan I am so sorry to hear this but understand the place you are in right now. Ironically knitting helped me thru my break up, but definitely don't worry about it if you can't focus. Focus on you right now that is most important! It will definitely take time, but you will work thru all of it. Contact us to talk thru this if you need to anytime! We will still be here!

I am so sorry to hear about your break-up. I know it is hard to deal with, but you seem like a wonder woman, who will pull herself together and come out of this much, much stronger. I wish you the best.

Edna said...

I've been checking out your blog for a little while now, admiring your work. I'm so sorry to hear about the breakup. I just recently went through a breakup with a man I loved very much and I grieved. The future does look so uncertain after something like this happens. It is so hard when you may have had certain expectations, but I know that, in the future, you will be okay. Hang in there and the knitting (which means happiness) will return.

I'm so sorry to hear this. Hang in there and be strong! Knit when you need to for that peace of mind and do what you need to do to take care of yourself.

I'm so sorry to hear that! Certainly, this will give you the opportunity to rearrange your life in a good way. *knitterly hug*

Michelle said...

Oh..I'm so sorry to hear that. Definately take care of YOU first! I know what its like to date someone for so long, poor alot into the relationship and it not work out. But know that you are a wonderful person and you will get through this. Use knitting to help you center you energy and reflect on the things you can take away from this experience so that you continue to grow. I'll keep you in my prayers!

Just reading this, hon. And there is plenty you can do. If you are like I was (just Jan/Feb THIS year), though it has been a month, you may still be feeling stuff. Well, you know what helped me tremendously . . . . Michelle McKinney Hammond's "Secrets of an Irresistible Woman: Smart rules For Capturing His Heart". Do NOT let the title fool you. A co-worker suggested this book to me and it, coupled with principles I learned from Mamma and Jehovah God got me through!

First, I love to read. During the night when I would awaken, with negative self-talk, pity parties, etc. I would read, meditate; oh and pray. I finished the book so quickly I began ordering others of her books via amazon.com (grreat used prices and many in the "used" section are actually new).

I could go on and on about this subject. But, I will close for now and hope if you need, that the spirit guides you back to this thread of yours.

Hugzzz,
