When I decided to start blogging about Jensen and life after loss I promised myself I would always do two things:
- To honor Jensen by sharing his story and the positive impact he brings to me each and everyday.
- Be completely raw and honest no matter how hard.
Today, I unfortunately have to share news that hurts and is ultimately life-changing. Before I begin, I’d like to say this is not wrote in an ill tone or manner. This is real life and a fairly common thing to happen after losing a child.
Anthony and I have decided to go our separate ways to be able to focus on ourselves through our different grief journeys.
It hasn’t been an okay time for me and although I can’t speak for Anthony, I know he’s hurting too. The reality is grief does awful, awful things to a person and their relationship. I don’t think we’re going into this next stage of our lives with a bad taste on our tongues. We’ve been able to identify how each other needs to be able to better themselves and it’s hard, but in this time we have to be apart.
