It was tough to write, especially with the bittersweet ending. It can be a rough job, you’ve got my respect. “listening. Being present, comforting without overwhelming or imposing.” Yep, you got this. :)
It’s like a lot of things in life, though, it takes from you and you don’t always see it giving back. It took me years to realize what it had given me, but I know I’m a better person for it and far better fit to appreciate my current SO as she deserves.
I wish you two all the best, Jason.
