Why is it when I finally decide to do the right thing for me, I get the most resistance? I've been in a relationship my whole entire adult life and always living with my significant other. (Not just one partner, this has been a pattern...one to the next, etc.) I made the decision to move on my own in January and I can't believe the reactions I am getting. I have a man in my life who loves me and supports my decision to be single. We are parting ways as friends and who knows what the future holds. I need to know that I can pay my own mortgage, keep my home clean, cook for myself...just be alone with me. I can't continue on down this road of cohabitation without getting to know who I am first. I don't want to be half of any relationship anymore. I am complete within me and I want to prove this to myself. The reaction of the people closest to me is so disturbing. They all think I'm out of my tree! Why would I CHOOSE to be on my own and possibly even struggle a bit, when I have a man willing to support me. Why? Because I need to before I can ever move forward in a healthy relationship! How can I know who an ideal partner for me is when I don't even know who I am?
