The Alexandria Papers
By Dr. Alexandria Szeman  • Issue #19 • View online
I spent virtually all of 2021 grieving the loss of my 27.5 year relationship, and when I wasn’t grieving, I was handling the logistics of un-cluttering my belongings and moving into a new place. Discovering, two days after I moved, that my ex-partner had had a girlfriend for at least 3 years didn’t ease my grief or sense of loss, though it did help me sever any last connection with him.
2021 was a rough year, and while I’m very glad to be out of a relationship that had become abusive, it’s still challenging getting used to living alone again after almost 3 decades with a partner. I’ve been doing lots and lots of journaling in at attempt to deal with that loss, and my therapist is helping me as well.
To relax in the evenings, I read before bed, and after finishing Jane Austen’s Mansfield Park, Persuasion, and Northanger Abbey, I’m re-reading Emma. And Emma is absolutely one of my favorite protagonists, so it’s nice to re-visit her periodically.
