All (Seemingly) Good Things Come to an End

Nile and I are done. Just like that and out of the blue. But surprisingly I'm doing fine. His reasons were, in my opinion, totally bogus and cliche. It was something along the lines "It's not you, it's me and I need to focus on my career." Okay, sure. But I would have respected the truth and if that was the truth, well couldn't it have had a better climax? I guess not all love stories end in tragedy, some end with a fizzle instead of a bang.

I was a little disappointed at first but after I opened my eyes I saw he wasn't exactly what I thought, wanted, or needed. Anyone who knows me is well aware of just how much my family means to me. During my step-father's struggle with colon cancer, my mom's breast cancer scare and even my grandma's death, he never offered me support. I'm not sure how I ever justified that away. Not only is that unacceptable in a relationship, it's unacceptable in a friendship.

It's been a great learning experience and I can confidently say I am not one of those people who is scared of being single.
