Hello and welcome to ‘My Single Life and I’.
A few years ago in a country far, far away, I got the biggest shock of my life when my boyfriend of 6 years, who I had loved for so long, dumped me, citing that we’d just “grown apart”. Little did I know at the time that he had already met somebody else and had been cheating on me for years.
Cheating, lying, abuse, you name it, I endured it, and when the relationship ended, I was utterly destroyed. After flying back to England, in the only trousers that would fit me, I lay on my bed and wanted to die. I didn’t want to live anymore. I’d had so much cheating, pain and death already that I didn’t believe that I had the strength or confidence to do anything with my life ever again. That’s when things started to change. We all heal in different ways, and in my case, I had to hit rock bottom before I saw the light.
One lonely night, after sobbing in the bath, again, I was sat in my bedroom, torturing myself over memories long gone and what could have been when suddenly, I bolted upright. I’d had enough of being sad, and I wanted to share my story with you.
A lot of us have had that one partner that really hurt us, or the one that got away, or just had some really, really awful dates. A lot of us get the blues about being single at times (I still do now). Sometimes, we just need a helping hand to bring us back up from when we have slumped slightly back into the ‘single-abyss’. That’s why I am here.
‘My Single Life and I’ was never intended to be a form of revenge against my ex-boyfriend for what he did. It was intended to be instrumental in helping others heal their own broken heart, whilst at the same time, indeed, healing my own. The story that I tell is accurate and true, straight from my heart. It can get a bit raw at times, and I have a habit (these days) for saying things how they are. I don’t have time for sugar-coating anything anymore.
