How it happened - Part II

Looks like she took it well. And if I interpret the last scene correctly, so did you.

Yeah, I'd already cried enough in the preceeding weeks.

Even through our smiles, we were still both visibly upset upon departing. I think she was a little surprised that I didn't want to (read: couldn't) keep it going short-term, and I was of course upset that it had to come to this.

I'm happy with my decision, not with the fact it had to be made.

So yes, we both took it as best we could under the circumstances. :-)

Just playing it by ear from now on. I'm a bit melacholic, but relieved at the same time.

Sometimes you know you're doing the right thing, but it still hurts regardless, on both sides. Hopefully the lows won't last too long for either of you.

I think you're right in that staying together when you're thinking this could end any minute is unsettling. Maybe now you can feel a weight has been lifted off you, and that's a good thing.

I hope you'll continue to blog, although the story may change. You're very talented.

There is no doubt that Jeut is an extremely talented artist. My hat off to you for the ability to depict very strong emotions with simple graphics. I particularly love the art without much dialogue as I find them most potent in communicating raw feeling. You know, I'm sure, that it is a rollercoaster ride after a break up-moments of feeling very low and moments when you can actually see the sun and the brighter side of life. Regardless..over time..those low moments become less frequent and the moments when you can reflect that 'yep..I have grown..developed because of this hardship (heartache)' will become ever more frequent. Time, while you're alive will always be by your side...use it..and appreciate it..take care-perhaps you could change your red tie to a bow tie-come on be daring..try something new!

CB: Thank you, ChickyBabe. Your kinds words inspire me far beyond the digital medium that relays them. :-)

I never planned for this blog to be so sad. I had the idea for this quite some time ago - I just needed the motivation. I would love to keep this blog going, and thanks for your interest. :-)

WDP: Thank you. :-) I particularly like the minimal dialogue as well, however heavy dialogue was inescapable in a few entries to adequately set up the backstory.

I've been through this before. I know it sucks, and time heals all wounds - but that's exactly what I need. Time. It'll come :-) Thanks again.
