Under the Limbo Stick

It’s complicated to break-up when:

  • you live together
  • you both sorta want it to work out eventually maybe
  • you are really hurting
  • your partner/ex-partner keeps confusing you
  • you’re not ready to go straight from lovers to friends
  • you have low income
  • you don’t have many employable skills
  • you live in a region of high unemployment
  • you don’t know many people in the town
  • you don’t really like the town/region you are living in
  • you’re not sure if you want to go back to the town where you had your last home and lots of friends
  • you don’t know where else you’d rather live
  • you know that you have to move out but are not sure whether to share accommodation or get a lease… (and what’s affordable)
  • you do some work from home and need a professional work space
  • you keep getting sick
  • you are feeling lost and finding it hard to make decisions
  • you just don’t know what you want because nothing seems right anymore

Of the female variety and hungry for knowledge, truth and love.

  1. If I may be so bold, it is also hard to break up with your partner when:

    – They own everything.
    – They are larger, stronger and meaner.
    – They have a really nice car they let you borrow all the time …
    – You only have joint bank accounts.
    – Potential custody of the pets is unclear.
    – They are an attorney and you are not.
    – Their brother is a Navy Seal and only lets you live because you are with your current partner.

    You know, what’s really bothersome is when you figure out that it’s equally difficult to say with them or leave. Anyway, I just wanted to stop by to let you know I was listening. All the best,

    At 50 (Oh god I’m 50!) You know, I’m really no smarter about relationships than I was at ..maybe 22. When I’m in a relationship all I want is my freedom..and when I’m ‘free’, all I really want is a sound relationship. I’m not sure it ever gets any better, it’s all just so very confusing because although we may know ourselves, it’s totally, absolutely, completely impossible to be sure of anyone else.

    I so much liked your post
    you listed all the reasons you need to stay with that partner πŸ˜‰

    You know what’s not on that list?

    – Loving each other unconditionally
    – Both willing to do what it takes to make the relationship work
