So 2017 has already been a horrible year for me. My girlfriend of 2 and 1/2 years broke up with me. Just last year we had plans to marry each other.
For me, the whole decline started around Thanksgiving. It was the Saturday after Thanksgiving and I thought I would be nice and wash her car and make sure the tires had enough air pressure. Well, the car wash went well, but if there’s something you should know it’s that she drives a Prius. It’s hard to tell sometimes if the engine is on. Long story short, when i was pumping air into her tires the car was only on idle and the engine wasn’t on. This caused me to drain the battery to her car. Understandably she was very upset. It doesn’t help that she’s naturally very emotional and stresses out easily. I know she was frustrated, upset, mad and a lot of it was towards me. She tried really hard to displace her anger, but i also know her and how she thinks. I understand it’s not fair for her to put all the blame on me, but I couldn’t blame her. She did a good job of not exploding on me.
It was a very stressful next two hours. I know she was honestly losing it. Her brother in law came by to jump start her car, but after he left and she tried to turn it on again it wouldn’t start. Luckily after a 3rd attempt it did start.
We took the car to the nearest Toyota dealership. There we found out that her auxiliary battery was going bad anyways. That made me feel better. I was telling her that it was a blessing in disguise because it’s better this happened in the comfort of our home rather than her at work or somewhere else less safe. I joked around, “so does this make you question being with me?” I said it with the complete intention of her comforting me, but instead she replied, “no, not this.”
That about destroyed me. i couldn’t believe that she was doubting our relationship. We had talked about marriage and spending the rest of our lives together.
