Life Update | Single, moving back home, adapting to changes!

I’m back with another life update. I had such a great response to my last one. I didn’t realize it would resonate with people the way it did. I’m thankful I was able to inspire you all to keep working hard to achieve your dreams.

I won’t drag this blog post out too long. Let’s get straight to the point. Since my last update, quite a bit has changed. For starters, I’m no longer in a relationship. My ex and I were together for a little over 2 years. I won’t go into too much detail about why we broke up, but what I will say is that our relationship became extremely toxic and unhealthy. It got to a point where I knew it was time to go. I knew if I stayed things would progressively get worse. For both of our sake, I decided the best thing to do was walk away.

Make no mistake, it’s never easy walking away from a relationship, especially one that you thought would last and one that had so much potential. I honestly didn’t see myself having to start over again. I thought that relationship was it for me, but overtime, there were signs that I knew deep down inside I couldn’t ignore anymore. There were things that I loved about us, but the good no longer outweighed the bad. As heartbreaking as it is, love just wasn’t enough anymore. I’m a firm believer that people should always do what’s best for them regardless of what they may lose in the process. This is me doing what’s best for me.

As some of you may know, we did live together. We’re actually in the process of moving out of the apartment. I moved back home with my parents just until I can get on my feet again. I’m so thankful for them. They have really been there for me throughout this entire process. I honestly don’t know what I’d do without their unconditional love.

It’s definitely going to be a process adjusting to moving back home. I had really gotten used to being on my own. I established my own independence and learned how to navigate adulthood, which is why I’m so grateful for this experience despite it not going as planned. Moving out from under my parents’ wings and into my first apartment taught me a lot.

The hardest part about this breakup is having to give up so much of what we worked hard for together. It’s been difficult coming to terms with it all, but I know that God has a plan for everything- even this. And although it may not make sense right now, I know it will one day. I know that one day I will look back on all of this and realize why I had to go through what I’m going through. I’ve experienced heartbreak many times. This is just one more of those times. I’ve overcame every obstacle and every roadblock. This is no different. I will overcome this too.

And so, there it is. As you can tell, the journey to desperately find myself continues. I thank every one who has been following along on this journey. I know one day it will feel so good to know how many people have followed along and supported me in every phase of my life- the good, the bad, and the ugly. It truly means the world to me. I can’t wait to see where I end up. I have a feeling it’s going to be better than I ever imagined.

If you’re someone going through heartbreak or tough times, know that you can get through it too. It won’t be easy, but it will be worth it in the end. I encourage you to stay strong and believe in your ability to pick up the pieces and keep moving forward. Life may feel impossible now, but it won’t always feel that way.

Sending you all love and positive vibes ❤️
