"18 months ago I was planning to spend the rest of my life with the woman I had been with since I was a teenager. Now I'm pregnant, engaged to a man and raising his seven year old son. It's just a bit much. I just need a few days."
And so Chloe went to spend a few days with her ex-girlfriend. Ouch. Of course ouch. But she needs down time.
I didn't communicate very well before she left and promised her I wouldn't contact her until weekend.
So just in case you read this before I speak to you... what I meant by my "erm... ok... erm...." [insert awkward silence] was;
"I love you. And I know your life has changed almost beyond recognition. You take your down time, take your white space, take your break.... and know that once you've had a few days to yourself, I'll be here. Waiting. Love you all the same."
