I'm taking the time to feel sad about my relationship ending. I'm not ready to jump into another one, though dating is an option. I feel like I need to do some soul searching.
I've never dated before. I've only been in this one ten year relationship since highschool ended. I feel like it is so unfair that he is in the same situation, but instead has immediately started dating someone exclusively. Less than a month after we broke up! It seems so juvenile and pathetic. And I'm just jealous
Try to look at it another way. You have said in the past, I think, that you knew that it was over and you knew you didn't want to be with him.
You are dealing with it...he is not...he chose to get involved with someone else...and is more than likely, not ready for that...and it will come at a price.
Seize the opportunity you have now to find out what YOU want...do what YOU want. Nothing is holding you back. Don't look at it with fear or regret. You hold the responsibility for what happens now...be excited...embrace it.
I believe in you...you can do it Super. You can. You have already proven you are strong. Welcome to 2008, a year full of possibilities. And they don't have to be bad ones...you are in control...remember that, ok?!
[quoting Walt Whitman] "To drive free, to love free, to court destruction with taunts, to feed the remainder of life with one hour of fullness and freedom - one brief hour of madness and joy."
this is a new board this is a new year make something of it you'll drive yourself crazy worrying about him, his relationships, his happiness worry about you, stop wondering about him, it will only lead you to more heartbreak you are right... you need to soul search who do you what to be? what kind of life do you want? what kind of future do you want?
You are both right. I think at the bottom of my jealousy that he had someone new and I don't is the fact that I'm scared. Now I need to figure out what I want and who I am. That's something I thought I already knew.
