Accept reality

Back in January/February Dayana and I started to have lots of trust issues that quickly damaged our relationship. Mostly because of things and mistakes I've made that were hard to recover from.

It didn't help that our guinea pig passed away. Each one of us was only focusing on themselves and stopped to take care about the relationship.

For the past 5 months I've been trying to understand how to heal from a broken relationship. How to forgive myself and also forgive someone else.

Living with a broken relationship is hard. Spending time with someone who you don't feel like you can trust is the hardest thing of all.

The most important thing I did to heal and let go was to accept the reality.

Our relationship wasn't working and us parting ways was seemingly the only solution to the issue, a solution I didn't want to accept because I thought staying together was the most important thing we could do.

When I was able to understand the reality instead of fighting against it I became free. I was able to choose what I wanted to do with my life, and become who I wanted to be.

It's only after we've lost everything that we're free to do anything.
