Hi Glaceia,

I have thought long and hard about why I attracted someone like that into my life. Too long and too hard in fact.

I’ve also written about my part in it quite extensively. Three of those stories are actually linked at the bottom of this one, in the interest of making more of the whole story available to those interested.

I’ve detailed my shortcomings and defects when it comes to relationships — the one I’m referencing in this piece specifically time and time again. I beat myself up over it all for a really long time. That was after a period where I blamed her for everything, because of how angry I was for things that happened immediately after we broke up.

Today though, I can thankfully see the truth, which is neither her or I were fully to blame — and we both had a part in all of it. This is simply one part and angle of a very long story. One you’ll often see sprinkled throughout my writing, because not only was it my longest relationship (5 years) — but I also learned life altering lessons through the mistakes I made.

Thanks for reading and responding, I hope you’ll take the time to read at least one of the stories I linked to at the bottom of the one you originally commented on. Have a great day.
