From the gargantuan pity party she has thrown for herself on her blog:
It’s hard to tell your mind to stop loving someone when your heart still does. And I thought it sounded like it applied to your situation – separating from Jack is a decision your mind has made, but your heart needs time.
This is exactly how I feel. Intellectually I know it was the correct decision. But we’ve spent the weekend together, just hanging out and enjoying one another, and well … it’s hard not to be like “Ugh! Let’s not do this whole “break up” thing! Let’s just keep trying! We can work this out! Who cares about logic!?!?” Yeah. And that’s how you end up making bad decisions …
Anyway, the good news is that staying friends – like I am with Jack – helps me get over breakups much faster than having them peace out of your life. I don’t know if that works for ALL breakups, but at least with me, that’s crucial. I don’t do well when I lose people I love completely.
