Nothing crafty today, just a little ramble about life.
Break ups.....well, they sometimes really suck! When I was younger I went through plenty of broken hearts and hated having to break up with someone. As an adult and after my divorce I hated dating....HATED it, I hated going through my story over and over again, knowing that most likely this person and I wouldn't have a second or third date. So, I tended not to date much, which was fine with me....I'm an introvert and don't have any problem with alone time and my space, however yes, it did get lonely over those 9 years. Some of the break ups were a blessing and some took awhile to get over.
They were so cute and had a couple bucket list that they would check off things as they completed....like decorating the Christmas tree, making cookies together, kissing in the rain (snow), fun things like that!
The break up was her decision....she is a senior and off to college next year, he is a junior and still has more high school. She wants to date different people.....which I totally understand and encourage her to do....but dang, I didn't realize how much I would miss him/them together. I know she is fine, but he is heart-broken and so I feel for him and worry about him, and hope in time he will get over his anger and hurt and be open to dating and having fun again. Honestly, right now they are too young for something serious to happen anyway. It just sucks that there are casualties and broken hearts along the way. :(
Has anyone else had a hard time with their child's break-up??? If so please share a comment so I know I'm not the only one and not a complete weirdo! I know I can be weird, but I don't want to be completely weird! ;)
