The number of people who have reached out to me in this difficult time is truly astounding. Distant family members I never talk to, people I haven’t seen since high school, old friends and acquaintances I’ve lost contact with. I have lost a tremendous amount of faith in men as loyal partners and the power of romantic love, but humanity is really taking me by surprise.
Having a support system at this time is exactly what I needed. For so long I felt that Josh was all I had in the world, and that was neither healthy nor true. I feel better here in the comfort of my childhood home surrounded by people who really know me and my past.
Also, shout out to my amazing kitten who braved a long car ride and two bumpy flights to get here. I promise to be the best single kitty mamma to you that I can be.
*This is all excepting the dudes I knew in high school that are clearly just trying to holler. Fuck off.
