So many thoughts ran through my mind reading this. One feeling I had was relief that you'd gotten out of this relationship that wasn't working, but also sadness for Kenny's emotional neediness and the way he seemed to want to either guilt you into staying with him or control you by his sensitivity. (When a person is sensitive to everything, how can you have an honest relationship?)

He needs to deal with his issues. Putting it all on you is not fair. Luckily, you realized that. I wish him well. I really hope he's able to move on and find happiness.

Thank you, as always, for your comment and support.

I heard on the radio the other day a scientist talking about how we change as we age, not just on the outside, but on the inside as well. It happens in such tiny increments that we don't notice until we are put to the test.

I, too, hope that he finds happiness.


Ok, first of all, this is SO beautifully written!

And secondly, this is why, even though I don't comment frequently, I am so drawn to you. So many women would fall all over themselves wondering what was wrong with them that they couldn't love this man that loved them, whereas what you said is exactly what I was thinking.

While I'm sorry that there is hurt and sadness, I am also so proud of you for listening to your own heart.

April, thank you so much for your touching comment. You brought a mist of tears from your appreciation and respect. Thank you.

Break ups are always difficult and create feelings of vulnerability that can be uncomfortable for many. Thank you for your strenght and honesty.

Thanks for your support Connie. I wonder if men often have a harder time with a break-up because they don't (generally) have the support system outside of the relationship that can make it so that their vulnerability is compounded with loss of meaningful connections, at least that was the way it was with my ex and Kenny.
