It wasn't the first time I broached the topic.
I've made parts of the speech before. I'm leaving, I'm done, I can't do this anymore - have all been said.
I'm not sure he ever believed it before. He thought there was something he could do or say to change my mind.
This weekend I stood my ground and spoke up for myself. I made it known that I am leaving. I made it clear that I cannot, will not stay.
I am visiting my family at home this weekend. I will be telling my parents of our split and asking them to support our decision, even if they don't understand it or like it.
When I get back to Nashville, I'll be making my exit.
