I agree.

It may take a month, 6 months, a year or longer (usually around 6 months for me if it was a real relationship), but one morning you'll wake up and it won't hurt quite so bad.

It gets easier after that.
The further I get from the things I care about, the less I care about how much further away I get.

My heart goes out to you, EarlyMorning. I know someone that is going through the same situation....I was actually dating her and dealing with that side of her situation. Sounds like you are on the right track!!! Chin-up...good luck!




EarlyMorning wrote:im now in shock/anger/denial/depression in my heart but acceptance and hope in my head. Its a strange juxtaposition.

I'm in therapy now. Without it my head would be where my heart still is. But I know Im on the right path now and my heart will eventually catch up.

I just don't know what stage I am in anymore, I am depressed and keep daydreaming he will contact me. After a month of no contact I went and sent him a short message saying "Thought of you hope you doing well". Well he did bother replying and I found out that the day I moved out he had already been seeing somebody else while we were sorting out me moving out.

I just wish I could get over him and really don't know how I guess it does not help when you have BPD.

When I heard he had a new girlfriend it felt like somebody put a knife straight through my heart it hurt. Then I heard he is looking terrible and not shaving and I felt sorry for him and that is when sent that message but no response.

It seems like grief is everlasting. However, me and my family have been helping a friends get over the death of his son. It has been so hard. I realize that the support we give him has helped tremendously. I am so grateful for the support I am able to give him. Even though it does not bring his son back, it still allows him to forget about it for a little. I EDITED FOR SPAM on this blog about choosing a psychologist, that people that dwell and spend too much time on any step of the grief process will take much longer to move on to the next step.

Well...I would get over mine, it was mostly my fault, being depressed alot and sometimes un-understanding..I know its what's best for him. But a few days ago he sent a long text apologizing for all the harsh words he sent me the day before, and the fact that we would never get back together..And again yesterday he told me he never wanted to see me -.- So you can say I'm going through them all once again..
ADHD, Tons of emotional changes, and just overall nutty.
