Bye Bye Brangelina

Today we say goodbye to Brangelina. Maybe it was the cute sounding moniker that killed it? My Ex and I had a similar one name moniker. It was our two first names smashed together. Everybody that knew us called us that. So I have first hand memories of that painful separation. Even though the love was gone, after being known as that one name, it really was weird to hear people change what they called me.

I was just Diane now.

It was weird for a little while. Others told me it was weird for them too. Sad, even. But time passed and I began to see the falseness of that single name in those last several years. And now, well now I can’t even imagine it ever was.

We are so separate now. We have not spoken in years. Gone, gone, gone. When One becomes Two. And those Two walk away from each other. And their paths no longer cross. And all of those shared dreams, those intimate moments are torn apart. Into tiny bits that blow away, in the past life wind.

New bonds will be formed with new people. Friends and lovers. And the shared twenty-four hours now take place on separate clocks.

And time goes on.

Goodbyes are so different than hellos. Hellos are said a thousand times in a shared life. Goodbyes are said just once.

And two people walk away, their backs to each other. Never to turn around.

We all go through major life transitions when relationships end… Through this website, I will share my thoughts as I walk the path of “New-Self” discovery. It doesn’t matter which side of 50 you are on. The real question is, Are you ready to live life? To forge a Path of Your Own Making (For a change!)? Then stop dwelling over the What-Might-Have-Beens and join me. Share your thoughts here, comment on mine, and let’s do this together!
