The two condensed statements alone were enough to earn you my ten claps. I have been this person. 2.5 years later, while I still have ill feelings toward the man, I accept that I needed to be in that relationship in order to learn certain things. I also fully accept that it may take many more years to fully process the pain I experienced during that relationship; not pain caused by him, but the pain caused by me for allowing someone to treat me as he did.

Sassy+Loving. Scientific+Spiritual. Nomadic. Always sincere, often wry. Hopefully romantic. Polymath.
