Quoting JessicaRenee118:" My daughter's father and I just recently split, we were together for 17 months. It was my doing, at the ... [snip!] ... to talk to them about it. I just want to cry all the time. I wasn't sure where to post this, but I just needed to get it out."
I went through that with Cory. We broke up back in August, I ended it even though I was pregnant with his child. I just couldn't take it anymore. It wasn't that he was a bad person, he just got on my very last nerve. I couldn't stand being around him. I thought I had done my best but the relationship wasn't meant to be. My parents and siblings didn't sway one way or the other but my Aunts were convinced I did the right thing.
I started going out with friends and spending more time with my aunts. I moved out of the trailer we had lived in together and just got on with life. Everything was great at first, total freedom. But then the nights got lonely and I realized I did love him and I missed him. He had said some really hurtful things during our time apart but in the end it didn't matter. We worked things out 3 months later.
My family was still indifferent but my aunts and new friends stopped speaking to me. But I don't care. I am glad we are together. But I still do not regret the time we were apart. It helped me grow and to know how deeply in love with him I really was.
Best of luck to you.
