However, what I have seen in my own journey is there is another type of person who is equally, if not more so, deserving of credit: an entrepreneur's significant other.When I recently read Brad Feld's account of the depression and issues that stemmed from his entrepreneurial drive and endeavors, I was certainly impressed by his courageous vulnerability.The person ending a relationship never comes out unscathed, they just mourn the relationship before it is over. Unless someone is cold hearted or just using people for a short time for their own pleasure, ending things is not easy.
If you are the one walking away, try not to do this. But these people finally found the courage to be themselves. This leads them to get into straight relationships that they don't feel fulfilled in.They spend some time apart only to discover that they have a deep love for each other.They often go about fixing what they find is wrong.
