my scars have been slow to heal. actually a lot of people don't really know that i still have the pain that i do, or that i still think about him in the ways that i do. and i even fool myself with it sometimes. but i know that these scars are deep, and they still need work.
and i realize that may be one of the reasons i do not have a relationship still, that i am still healing these scars. and only when these scars are healed will i be able to love again.
so here's to 2008 being the year for me, the year i find what i am looking for.
Scars of a relationship can stem further than the relationship that you had with your SO. They can stem to relationships in the family and relationships with friends. Until my scars heal, all of these people and my relationships with them are sometimes weak. It takes time for the scar to heal and at least we have understanding friends and family that know that we may need to take a step back be alone and have some self-reflection time. Our scars will heal. When is the question. Hopefully 2008 will bring a time of healing for us all! Good luck LT! I am right there with you.
