“Ended it” is in quotes because if you end the “relationship” like this, you probably aren’t breaking up anything. Let me just start off by saying this post isn’t going to be filled with earth shattering paradigm shifting ideas. What this blog IS going to be is stating the obvious, BUT it's going to be stating the obvious and backing it up with statistical data. I’m starting something new and I’m not sure if this is the best idea I’ve ever, or possible the worst idea I’ve ever had. Like they stopped responding to your text messages and that’s how you “ended it”?
Disclaimer: if you're a woman between the ages of 45 and 60, living in the Chicagoland area, and I popped up on your "Viewed Me" list, I'm sorry, really.

The first thing you read in the post was a bold face lie. Well, by “illustrate” I mean slap together some stock graphics in photoshop or make crappy memes about your story. Where to begin, where to begin…is either going to be one of the smartest things I’ve ever written, or a couple hundred words of pure word vomit that everyone hates. When I was a little girl, I wanted to be a teacher, then a detective (like Columbo or Jessica Fletcher, ahem), and then a writer.Many moons later, and here I am teaching people who are tired of emotional unavailability, toxic relationships, and feeling 'not good enough', how to reduce their emotional baggage so that they can reclaim themselves and make space for better relationships and opportunities.
