Have you been through the worst time of your life yet? What was that? What did you do to get through it?

Have you been through the worst time of your life yet? What was that? What did you do to get through it?

We moved from the trashy suburbs of London (Northolt) to safer, more connected London (Earl’s Court).

This wasn’t working. But we loved each other.

We decided to head to sunny Malaga; Spain. She was from sunny Torino. I was from grey London.

Malaga wasn’t working either.

We broke up in Malaga. I moved back to London. She stayed on in Spain.

I travelled for seven months around the world. I got a full arm sleeve of tattoos. I ran marathons, ultramarathons, fought Muay Thai.

I also turned up on her doorstep and proclaimed my love.

She didn’t want me and the wounds were still open

Seven months later we got back together. I was overjoyed. She stayed in Torino I moved back to London from Lausanne. We holidayed to different countries.

Then I moved to Torino

Things still weren’t working. We broke up again. I moved back to London

It hurt. It still hurts writing this actually.

How did I get through it? Time. Therapy and moving on with my life. In a loop.

So when it didn’t work properly. Then I added - more time, more therapy and more moving on with my life.

Eventually it worked :slight_smile:
