Getting better

I just wanted to send out a quick thank you to all of you for your concern, support and kind words - even though I have yet to go into details about what is happening.  Noone is dying (but that doesn't mean I don't want to kill someone); everyone is healthy (but my head needs a shrink.  But seriously, what's new about that?!); and we are working through the situation.

What I am trying to do right now is to get to the point at which I can separate the actions of others from my own life.  I have no control over the choices other people make, and I have to decide for myself whether I am going to make it my problem.  Too bad for me that it seems I have already made the decision to make it my problem.

I do want to tell the story, but it is a long one, and it is extremely embarrassing to me.  I hope that when I tell it, you can listen with an open mind and that maybe it will let you see the other side of tragic stories you see on the news almost every day.

It has taken me a long time to learn to separate myself from others, especially my family and I'm not 100% there yet. If there is one thing I have learned, it's that the choice to not let external influences affect you is a conscious decision. It's often more difficult to separate the head from the heart, and that's not always healthy. It's important to acknowledge your feelings because, until you have done that, you can't accept them and begin to let them go. I hope you can soon return to the
"banality" of online/in real life dating/relationship drama. If that's what you want, of course.

Nothing to be embarrassed about, it's not *you* that something happened to be. As they say, you can't choose your family.

I never stopped thinking about you, about us... And when you were back, I started to hope.

... Maybe one day when Gotham no longer needs Batman, I'll see him again.
