It's almost been six years since I joined the kommunity, and I've been very much an on/off member, especially since I moved out two years ago.
This was a place I went when I was a teenager, when I was in a bad place in my life and I gained a lot from it. I got to know a lot of new people, built some very meaningful friendships. This was also the place I met the man I dated for over four years, the man I lived with for two and a half years, the man I was engaged to for seven months.
And now I find, that going back here reminds me of him, of who I was when I met him, a completely different person than who I am today.
There's no bad feelings between us, maybe there's no feelings at all, about a month ago I watched him get on a train, knowing that it would be the last time I ever saw him, and I didn't feel sad, I felt relieved more than anything.
Maybe I'll start coming back here more, maybe I'll stop coming here at all, I'm not quite sure yet, but no matter what, this place will forever be the reason I met him, and that's a thing I won't be able to forget.
I'm okay, I'm good even, sometimes life just happens and people turn out to be someone other than you thought they were. Now it's time for me to find myself again, to be someone I want to be.
