Surely the hardest thing about re partnering is wondering if ''this time'' it's going to work out.
Oftentimes the uncoupled like to talk of how they don't believe in happy-ever-afters any more, or that they think people aren't really made to be together for ever - but I think deep down, we all want to believe that's not true. We want to meet a soul mate, to fall in love and to grow old on the porch with someone.
And of course the horrible reality is that after the first breakup - especially if the relationship was of significant length - the subsequent ones are more common, more likely and more frequent. How's that for a depressing thought.
And today's blog is not a happy one. Because I have learned of some more friends who are now going through the pain of separation.
It's easy to offer platitudes isn't it? Better luck next time. It's a lesson learned. There's a reason for this. He wasn't right for you. You deserve more/better/different.
But at the end of the day, it's just people hurting. Which is how this blog started in the first place.
