I've been single for almost two years now. Not just single, but very happily single. Sometimes, I worry that I may never want to be in a relationship again.
Why would I want to be single? You might ask. Heck, a few years ago, I would've asked myself, too. For many years I chased after guys, trying to find someone who would love me and give me happiness and dependability.
It took me two years on my own to realize that all of that exists within me, and I need not go looking for it elsewhere. And while I'm at it, why would I bother to try and make something work with someone else, if there's a huge chance that it won't work, and I'll end up heartbroken?
Man. I remember the last time I broke up. And the time before that. And the one before that. Awful, dark times. I obsessed. I cried. I couldn't eat. I felt like my life was over.
And no matter what I did, I couldn't seem to get past it. I just had to wait it out and suffer.
Oh, how I wish I had found this cartoon sooner. Granted, I couldn't have, since it only came out and went viral recently. I guess I wish that it existed earlier, and that I found it then.
I was going about dealing with my various breakups in the completely wrong way. I was hiding from feelings I didn't even know I had. I was focusing on things I never should have paid any mind to.
I'll say this: I'm going to make sure I remember these tactics from School of Life if and when I ever end up dumped again. They make so much sense. I'm shocked I never figured this out myself.
