If You Want To Judge...

I know my choice to move in with my boyfriend has offended some of my friends.

I understand why you do not approve of my choice. It is not my intention to offend anyone. I am only doing what I feel is best for this situation.

Even before I moved here almost 11 years ago, I was looking for a place I belonged. It was something I just was not finding back home. I had hoped that some of the very people who are judging my choice now would be part of that solution. Instead many (not all) of you chose to not be an active part of my life. It happens. Still it left me alone and still searching for that next step in my life.

When my parents died, most of those pieces were falling into place, but something was still missing. My life changed, but it was just a temporary detour.

Now I have all the pieces. It isn't just my boyfriend. It is my friends, my job, and finally feeling that I belong.  I am ready to move forward and start a new chapter in my life.

For the first time in my life, I do not feel lost and alone. I don't feel like I am trying to fit it. I don't feel like I can't measure up. I have found where I need to be. I am in a healthy relationship. I am excited for my future. All of those things are very positive. If your beliefs make it so you can't be happy for me, then I guess we are at an impasse.
