love and distance

The thing is about romance and falling in love, is it's a terrible thing to do from a distance. And distance can be anything, it can be someone's drug problem, which was my ex-boyfriend Jim's issue, or it can be their history of childhood abuse that keeps them emotionally distant because they never got therapy to deal with it at all, or it can be 15,000 miles (or however far it is between the US and New Zealand) and two oceans. In any event, distance is an obstacle.

Alas, I think I ruined something good, and now I'm sad. Oh well. Life just really, really sucks sometimes. That's about all I can say.


  1. Hi Jen,

    sorry your sad. Sometimes its lucky though if you can have someone as an email friend. I've had one for about nine years now. We aren't in love, (yeah, he's a guy, I'm a girl, but we know we aren't each other's type). The best that we do is to support each other. God, I love seeing his email in my box each morning. And its just plain super to be able to vent, express, explain.........things you do on your blog very well. But to a friend, we get to be even more personal.

    Take care,

I welcome comments from all readers and encourage you to leave them! Please do. However, due to spam, I review each comment before it can be posted, so it may take 24-48 hours before your comment appears on the blog. Please be patient. I post comments that are not spam.Note: my definition of "spam" includes ALL links to sites claiming to cure or provide "the solution" for incurable diseases such as Schizoaffective Disorder and Schizophrenia. Vulnerable people come to my blog, and I will not let them be preyed upon, but people who post snake oil remedies on the internets. Take your garbage and peddle it elsewhere. Since Blogger doesn't weed all that garbage out, I've been doing it myself for years.
