Moving on from Heartbreak

I wrote in a previous post at the end of January about a lot of the details (see: https://www.andreasartland.com/post/dealing-with-heartbreak). It is now the beginning of March, so it’s almost been 3 months.

When he comes over to get his stuff— he only leaves with one or two things. It’s like he is purposely dragging this out. My family wants me to leave it out front or throw it away. I just can’t. I doesn’t feel right to me.

I am okay and will be completely recovered by August financially (which is a lot sooner than I would be if I didn't find a much better job), but it is
