What a coincidence. I recently had a very similar epiphany stemming from well… a very similar situation. It’s amazing the good, bad, and ugly that can come from a break up.
I published my “wake up call” if you will. I like the way you described it. It’s not easy to put it into words. Because it feels like the ship is so lost at sea. Functional train wreck is how I worded it.
But I totally get what you’re saying. I’m two weeks into my anti-destructive detox.
Thanks for writing this. It’s baby steps everyday. Just gotta stay consistent.
