“Finding stuff that I do just on my own, that has nothing to do with my boyfriend and is just stuff for me. I go on walks by myself, am making more of an effort to spend time with friends, I’m taking a drawing class. It’s making a huge difference, way more than I expected.”
Many have told me I am selfish. That I should do it “for the kids” or to “save face.” But I am not swayed. Why should I give up my name and take yours? I have yet to get an answer aside from, “just because.” But you didn’t fall in love with a “just because” woman.
