This was a very hard decision but in the end I am very confident with my choice. I have also had some positive reinforcement to confirm I have made the right decision.
Ultimately I made this choice for ME because I want to be happy and deserve to be. I should not have to settle for less and refuse to. . . . so I am moving on.
This was not an easy process and it will take time to transition but it's worth it.
I recently did some apartment shopping and found a cute little place to call home, I signed the lease, packed up, and moved out. I am now working on building a life of happiness and settling in to my new place.
