I've smartened up. This is final. 
And I did it.

Like I said: Never look back. Never give anymore chances
cause a cheating man doesn't deserve any in the first place.

Thank you for all that you've given me, J.
May you be happy.


  1. Just a instagram follower of yours and sorry to read about your breakup. I believe a better and nicer person will come along as you move on. Like your blog header says, 'Chin up, girl'! Cheer up and stay happy :)

  2. Dear Irina,

    It seems like forever since I listened to 74hours radio.
    But it really hasn't been that long ago. Forever is a long time.
    Especially in terms of personal commitment...

    I have been reading your recent musings and am sad to hear that what burned so brightly just a few months ago is no more.
    But such is the nature of things that burn with such intensity. They need exorbitant amounts of maintanence just to keep going or else they burn out.

    Despite the inevitable heart pain that these situations cause, you will undoubtedly come out of this stronger and wiser.
    You are surrounded by people who love you and admire you and it seems that now, of all times, you have come to recognize their presence in your life.

    As of late I find myself in a very similar situation as you. And even though I embrace the "nothing ventured, nothing gained" mantra, I can't help but wonder why somethings don't work out despite the best of intentions.
    Some couples make it look so easy, don't they? even long distance relationships. How do they do it? ... It seems that timing is everything. It does you no good to meet the right person at the wrong time.

    I suppose these experiences teach us to really appreciate good things when they come to us. Someday you meet someone and it all just falls together.

    And that is the greatest fortune in all of life.

    But to see that as a fortune you must go through these tumultuous trials of life... like walking through the desert only to realize that your treasure was right beside you the whole time. ;-]

    Well, I'm sure you have a lot on your mind.
    I'll save the rest of these thoughts for some future rendezvous at a Singaporean cafe.

    Stay strong Irina.
