On Losing Someone...

via pinterest

I've been super stressed out lately, and although I feel awful saying that while Japan just suffered one of the worst disasters in the world, it's true. I've had multiple issued piled on me this week and I really wish I could just take a vacation from my life but that can't be done. While most of these issues are too personal to bring up on this public forum, one I would like to talk about is grieving for a past relationship. Whether a friend or family member, what was once an important relationship to you can slowly, or suddenly, dissolve. When I think back to best friends or boyfriends I've had who I spent every day with and who I now haven't talked to in years, it's really depressing. People evolve and change, as do I, so not everyone can get along forever. I hope to learn to be okay with this, and you would think growing up an Army brat, moving from place to place, I would be. I think it hurts more when I know I haven't moved away, that my friend/family is right there, but we don't see each other by choice. All I can do is hope I put all I could into the relationship and let things fall as they may.

I was an air force brat, and I can tell you it doesn't change how some of us can become attached to people or to places. I've experienced a lot of loss in my life as well, and I feel your pain. Even if the loss isn't by death, it is a death of sorts, and it deserves to be grieved. Hang in there. Perhaps things can be repaired. If not, you can grieve the death of the relationship, remember what was good, and learn the lessons that will bring you brighter tomorrows.
