After my last video post, and my post over at the other blog, I received a lot of comments, emails, Facebook msgs, etc. Some of you were concerned, some offered advice, others just gave interweb hugs.
You're awesome. Honestly.
So I thought I'd answer you all here.
To clarify, I'm NOT planning to jump into a relationship anytime soon. I'm going on dates, yes. Nothing serious. Exploring.
And, as most of you suggested, I am taking this time to get to know myself. Just me for the first time in 10 years. Not half of a couple; Not "Kris & 'Boyfriend' ". Cuz honestly... "Kris" is a pretty kickass chick. Who knew?
And as for your concerns about the depression...
I've had depression for as long as I can remember. There are a few ways to keep slightly controlled, but not completely. I suffered from it while in relationships, and so I will single.
The reason it hits me so badly now is because I'm alone.
It's a lot easier to push away the wave of crazy sadness when there's someone beside you, giving support, love and comfort. They help lessen the blow. I don't have that now - That's why I get days like I had Friday.
It won't be the last time.
But I'll deal with it as it comes.
