I'm Back! - December 13th 2012, 05:09 AM

Not sure for how long (or at least under this name/on this account). There are a lot of negative memories associated with this account and I've been absent for nearly a year now, for many, many reasons.

So much has happened in the past year. My ex's mother passed away. He began treating me in ways that sometimes bordered on abuse. I rationalised, decided they were due to his anger and little more. I tried for almost a year to make it work, blaming a lot of it on the distance and often using the distance as an excuse, before going out for a two month visit that opened my eyes in ways I never expected but in ways that I desperately needed. I came home, planned on taking time to think about it before approaching any of it with my ex, ended up losing my cat (my soul mate, companion, and best friend of 14 years) soon after I came home. In an odd way, his death ended up solidifying my decision and a month later, after a last few half-hearted, still somewhat desperate attempts to save my relationship, I called it quits.

I am now happily single, the mommy to two new beautiful kittens, Teagan and Maslow, and am coming back to face TH after a long absence. Some of you may remember me, some of you may not, and some of you may not even forgive me for dropping out of your lives like I did. There was a lot going on, a lot that I struggled with, but it's not an excuse, and I really am sorry for disappearing like I did. It seems like a lot has happened in my absence, as well, a lot of which has deeply moved me in ways I never expected.

All I can say is that at least for now, it's good to be back. In every sense of the word.

My blog is open to all, those whom are easily triggered avoid, it's a story about a girl and her life and how far she has come over the years. If you read it, I hope it inspires you to keep fighting and to NEVER give up!

When you can no longer think of a reason to continue, you must think of a reason to start over.

Welcome back Elliotte,
I was not here before you left, but I am very glad you are back. I am sorry you have been through so much. Sometimes it is best to take some time for yourself to work on your own issues I am sure your friends will understand this and will be glad that you are back. If you ever want someone to talk to feel free to send me a PM. I hope to see you around TH

Hello Miss Elliot. I'm sorry that your experience here was not a good one, I do remember you though! I'm really sorry about your kitty. I totally understand the bond you can have with a cat. Any how, seems like you've been living a pretty eventful life. Welcome back, nonetheless.

Hey, Elliotte! back to TeenHelp! I am so sorry to hear about the relationship going bad. I am so relieved to hear you realized your worth and decided to get out of it before it got worse. So happy you're safe.
And I am SO sorry to hear about your cat! I've lost many pets so I can relate. It hurts. Glad you got some new kittens though.
Oh and no worries, you're always welcome back here no matter what. Nothing to apologize for. C:
Feel free to PM/VM or E-mail me at purplechristabel@yahoo.com if you ever need anything.
