One of the massive changes that I anticipated navigating this fall was that of being single. (It's been more then a decade since I was really truly single for more then just a few weeks) In particular, I was faced with being close friends with an ex, that I still wanted to be with.
This weekend that changed. My partner has decided that it's more important for us to be together, and so we will continue our committed romantic relationship.
Now instead of the change of single-dom, I get to navigate the change of the long distance relationship.
I am beyond thrilled, and in many ways feel closer to my partner then I ever have. He's not only one of my closest friends, but he's my creative inspiration, and creates in me the drive to better myself.
