[update] Thanks for the amazing support guys! you make me feel like I have a huge internet family. :iconlovelyheartsplz: I truly appreciate all your comments, notes and well wishes. ♥ You're the best.

Thanks everyone who's been supporting us for all those years. Seven years is a lot of history, and I am very grateful for the time we had.
Even though this is a very personal thing and happened a while ago, I decided to draw this to work through the situation for myself, but also because I regularly get messages from people asking about us as a couple.
Answering them was difficult, and keeping it quietly to myself felt heavy.

I will not answer any personal questions about the matter, I hope you understand. 
I'd also like to ask for an important favour.Please do not contact him about this.
Thanks, it means a lot.

To all those who are/have gone through breakups: hang in there. Have a big hug from me. :iconsweethugplz:

You may share from my official sites (Facebook Tumblr) and as long as credit or a link back is given! Please do not repost on sites that make money off my work (9gag etc) When in doubt, just ask me! Thank you.

support me and my comics here.

I was looking at your comics and thinking " hey they look really happy, just like us".. And now I learn that you guys break up, just at the time my boyfriend, future husband left me. We were together for 4 years but.. I never felt like this before. I wasn't searching for relationship, i was with him because i really loved him and he did love me too. But what happened? I don't know.

He left me such in pain just like i felt when i lost my father 8 years ago. It's been 2 months and it's really hard for me to move on. I gave up all my dreams, I have no energy in me to continue living.

I am sorry you are going through such tough times as well. please, whatever you do, don't give up hope entirely and most of all, don't lose sight of how valuable your life still is, even when you are broken and hurting.
It seems impossible right now for things to get better, but it's only been a month for you. I also still cry sometimes, thinking back, and it's been many months for me.
I hope you have people around you who will help you now that you are at your weakest.
At the very least, know that you are not alone.

Hey, just wanted to say I've followed your work for some time (love it all). I've been through a horrible personal experience recently and I just wanted to say this comic made me smile. It's almost exactly how I feel now, even though I went through a different sort of experience. Especially the "I'll be okay ..." I repeat those words to myself like a mantra each and every day. Thanks so much for making this girl smile today. It means a lot. Much love - Maria
