How to survive a knife wound....


Funny how life can be, hey.... "Expect the unexpected" as the saying goes.... Well, "unexpected" is the understatement of my year. "Unexpected" has drop-kicked me in the teeth. "Unexpected" has crushed my soul, and sadly, there is no recovery from this one....

My best friend (of more than 35 years!), and my boyfriend, are no longer either of those things to me. Without getting into details, let me say that I will never, ever understand how two people, whom I respected and loved, could be so deceptive and hurtful towards me. My mind is swimming in bewilderment and my heart is broken, as I'm not sure what I did to deserve being handed the ultimate betrayal. I did not see it coming, at all. Wow. Just.... wow.

So.... While I am still processing the events that have transpired and have no survival tips to provide at the moment, I'm certain I will eventually figure out how to extract this giant knife from my heart (and the other one from my back), and I am confident I will heal from the wounds and move on. But I will do so with two fewer people in my world, which right now feels pretty devastating to me.

Funny how life can be, hey.

my dear Cheryle...as I read this I am crying for you. My heart breaks for you..you certainly did not deserve this. I will never understand the desperation that some people live by, nor their morals.
All I can say..do not lower yourself to those morals.
Just know that you are loved by your family and we support you. You never have to walk alone. LOVE Mom

Thanks Parents, for your support and kind words. I will get past this, in time, and I remind myself of these two things on a daily basis:
a) I am NOT the only person on the planet that this has happened to; and
b) Everybody deserves to be happy, even if they don't go about it in the nicest of ways.
Life as I know it has changed, and I have changed.... but what doesn't kill ya only makes ya stronger, right!!? Except for bears.... bears will kill you....
Cheers.
