What's worse than a break up?

Hello there. Newly single me reporting for duty. As a blogger. Not... anything else.

So today we're going to talk about break ups. After I posted a status "announcing" that I'm single, I got some attention. I just want to inform people, not planning to giving juicy details about my love life. I'm not going to talk (much) about this break up in particular of course. It's very low to bad mouth your ex, especially somewhere people can see, share, throw around and discuss after a few awkward silences. Find your own topic of discussion.

I want to talk about how break ups make me sad. And happy. More happy than sad.

Break ups make me sad because... of nosy people. Yes. What is worse than a break up is the need to explain it over and over again to people who ask about it. Honestly, you think it's sensible to ask someone to repeat that sad sloppy-love-story-went-bad?

The truth is, the people who should know would know about what happened. If you get to know that I broke up through social media, we're probably not exactly bffs to begin with, so... why should I tell you about my dysfunctional relationship again?

Although I imagine how it would turn out once in awhile, my life is not The Truman Show. Nor is it Keeping up with the Kardashians. No reality show here. Just reality reality. I don't need to explain my life to you. Of course I can when I want to, but I'm definitely not obligated to.

Now, about why I'm happy.

Because I've been showered with love and affection. And the break up is not a typical "I hate you get out of my life" break up. We're cool. If you know us, you'll know we're both "chilled" people. So thank you for your concern and love, and invitation to hang out. I'm fine. Really. And it's also during these times I see who really cares about me.

The difference between "showing concern" and "being nosy" is how much you want details. A concerned person will ask "what happened?" but doesn't really care if I answer the question; a nosy person would ask "what happened?", and mean it.

Thank you for your concern, my dearly beloved. Do not worry, for I am well. Big virtual hugs and sloppy virtual kisses to everyone. Even nosy people.

That's what J_Fish has to say~ Au revoir~
p.s. If you're offended, it probably means you're the nosy one. Well... I don't care. =D

  1. Daw. This year/the final quarter of last year I saw so many breakups and so many marriages. Must be really a very eventful period.
