I've been avoiding this post. Where do I begin? Where do I end? How much do I share? Should I share? What am I supposed to do about my blog readers? I've been posting less and less. There is a reason for that. I have been too afraid to let on too much. To let too many people know. After all, it's my business, right? Problem is, is this blog is my business. Plastered all of the internetz. I pride myself on my openness and ability to share my life's struggles with others and because I've been afraid to share this, I've been sacrificing something I love, blogging.
This is me. That's all I can offer you guys. I am not a perfect person and I don't pretend to be. My life isn't all sunshine and rainbows. I am doing the best I can with the one life I have been given. Unfortunately, at this time in my life, that means divorce.
Greg and I are no longer together. We have not been for some time. There is no reason for me to get into details because this involves too many people (Collin included) for me to air out everything and not hurt feelings or risk losing relationships. Bottom line? We don't work together. We don't fit. And that really sucks as a parent to have to separate from the one who created this beautiful child with you, but staying together would have been worse. This happens. It sucks. But this happens.
I have one life. One. Just one. One chance. And I want to spend it living happily and fully. With no regrets and no, "what if's." I gave Greg everything I had. Once there was nothing left, I knew what was best for me and Collin was this.
Judge if you want.
Gossip if you must.
I'm happy. Collin is happy. That is all that matters to me.
This needed to be said. I am tired of hiding from my blog and tired of pretending.
This is me, people.
Take it or leave it.
