When I first came to ENA, I was a mess. I met "Z" when I was still in high school, about 4 years ago. He took me to my prom, we dated for about 5 months, and then we broke up. It wasn't for fighting or any big huge collapse of the relationship, but we were both in different places emotionally and literally. He lived about 45 minutes away and though that's not far for most people, it really made it hard for us to see each other since I didn't even have a car yet, he worked full time, I was in school full time... Just wasn't working. The break up was REALLY hard on me. I didn't know how breaking up with a high school boyfriend of 5 months could be so hard - I mean I was only 16 and I didn't think I knew anything about love.


But we stayed in touch. We became closer and closer, and for 3 years he was my best friend. We decided that in order for me to be closer to school, and to help out financially, that I'd move in with him. That happened in May of this year. I guess being closer to each other and seeing each other so much made all the difference, because we got back together in June.


Today, the 13th, is 6 months back together for us and I have never been happier. I wanted to share this story with you all because I really went through a gut-wrenching time to get where I am now. I think going through hard times and pain with someone can make you appreciate things SO much more when times are good...and I'm lucky to have had the time apart from him. It made me realize how much I do want to be with him, and I think without that we both could have been wondering if we need to play the field or see what else is out there.


For all of you who are in a similar position as I was... people will tell you to get over it and move on... and that's okay to do - as long as YOU are making that choice for yourself. I knew I couldn't be happy with someone else the same way, so I waited. And for me it worked out, for some, it may not...but that's a risk I was willing to take for love.


Thanks to all at ENA for your support...and as long as there are people out there going through hard times, I'll be here to give back. Feel free to share your stories also.
