I've been putting this off for a week now mainly because I've had to take this in in waves. You see, the more I tell people, the more it is real, and as much as I knew it was the right decision, it's still hard.
Last week I broke up with Teri.
There, I said it. It's completely official in my head now (well, maybe after I click the 'publish' button).
It was a hard thing to do because I still love her very much, because we have such an amazing history together, and many, many other reasons. What I've come to realize over the last few months though, since we've been separated by a great distance, is that I already have roots here.
I still love her and I always will.
