I'll admit it - I got a little teary eyed. And I'll admit something else - part of the reason why I got teary eyed is because I initially had a hard time feeling any emotion at all and I was frustrated with that. I thought to myself, "Meg! This is the perfect opportunity to get all riled up about something! A great chance to write some pretty nasty lyrics! Maybe even an excuse to eat a lot of cookies while watching reruns of Degrassi!" But all I felt was mild surprise and a tinge of betrayal (as in, "Ah shucks, why didn't he tell me? Oh well.").
When you've been the central person in each other's lives for almost two years, you will, undoubtedly, have a transitional period after the disintegration of the romantic relationship. I don't know how "right" it is for me to disclose the details of that transitional period, but I do feel that it is okay for me to say that I believe he and I are right where we need to be at the moment. I believe we are surrounded by the type of people we are well-suited for and that we appreciate. I believe he and I are finally doing what we, as individuals, want to do. And I think that is something to be celebrated, not criticized.
