Judging from her journal, the recent ex is doing as well as I am and doesn't regret the decision at all. I wish things had worked out better, or at least I wish she and I had been a better fit, but things are looking up now for all concerned. It's not so much that this was a painless breakup as one that afterwards seems like it should have happened much sooner. I suppose most breakups are that way at least somewhat.
I'm confused and my mind is full of stuff to deal with, but things are surprisingly good and I don't regret any major decisions. Given the circumstances, I'll take it.
