Family meeting time.
Zuzana & I have something that we would like to share with you guys, and just like anytime you come to a friend for a sympathetic ear to tell them something personal, we are both hoping that you will be kind and supportive of us. Over the years we have really opened up our lives to you guys here on the site, and I think it’s because we feel such a close bond with the community here that we feel comfortable enough to confide in you – even if it’s really not easy.
Ok. Where to begin. At the beginning of this year, sometime in early January we came to the mutual realization that our relationship had evolved into something else – something that felt more like a deep friendship. The love was still there, and if anything it was even deeper and more profound, but somehow we had become more like two people who were best friends. Neither of us are sure how or why this happened – it certainly was not something that we planned on or hoped for – but there it is. I think that we both avoided an avalanche of emotional pain by an act of cosmic and emotional mercy that delivered both of our hearts to the same place in our feelings at the same time. We were both obviously disappointed to say the least, and we went through all of all of the typical feelings that people experience. There were tears, long talks, lot’s of hugs and even more tears. It was an extremely trying time for both of us, but we did our very best to keep positive, keep calm, and keep going.
When the emotional dust settled what we found was what we knew was there all along – love, tenderness and an unwavering support and respect for each other.
Neither of us wanted to be with anyone else or be apart or stop living together. As the weeks and months passed and we adjusted to being best friends and we enjoyed our time together even more. As friends we have had some amazing times together filled with all of the laughter, wonder and joy that makes life so wonderful and it feels so right for both of us.
We both realize how lucky we are to still have each other – this transition was by no means without moments of sadness and pain, but we were there for each other because that is what family and friends do for each other – even in the darkest moments when your heart is broken.
Fast forward to now – we felt that it was the right time to tell you guys because Zuzana and I have gotten through it together and for the first time in many years we will be living apart. We have decided that it’s an important step for both of us so that we can learn again how to stand as two complete but separate individuals. I’ve been in Canada now for a week with my family, and since leaving LA, Zuzana and I have been on the phone and on Skype for hours each day We miss each other like crazy. The good news is that we still will being coming together as friends and partners here on the site and also visiting each other loads just to hang out and do all the things that best friends do.
So there it is. There is so much love between us and such a strong friendship connection and I hope that you guys can feel it here on the site – it really goes into everything that we do here on the site
As we have mentioned in recent posts we are both fully committed to the site and the community here and all of you BodyRockers whom have been so supportive over the years – we hope that you will lend us your love and support as we move into this next phase of our lives together as friends.
We have a lot of amazing things planned for you guys in November, and both Zuzana & I believe that this is only the beginning.
With all of our love,
Freddy & Zuzana
