  • First of all, you are stronger than you think if you are moving on from this. So good for you for making a healthy choice for the betterment of YOUR life. Second of all, these are hard life lessons that we learn and grow from, which will open the door to a happier, more healthy relationship (down the road and when you're ready). Time does heal and give yourself positive affirmations/feedback every day. Just say something nice to yourself every day and know you deserve this change that you've decided to make. Stick with it!

  • Stop being Anonymous... own your life, own your choices, own your mistakes, own this victory. Stand up loud and proud, show the world you are a survivor of your situation. Take charge and stop hiding!

  • Something encouraging (though I know it can feel like cold comfort) is the principle that feeling your painful feelings is actually less painful than striving to avoid pain! Once you turn toward & into your actual present experience (whatever you're afraid of & trying to avoid--loneliness, emptiness, lack of meaning, not feeling important or valued, etc.) instead of trying to protect yourself from the pain of it, you are living it and you are engaged in a process. Feelings change once they are felt rather than avoided. And this is how you form & strengthen your actual Self.

  • Check out the quotes here:

    Couple of my favorites: 

    “All shall be well, and all shall be well and all manner of thing shall be well.”

    “He said not 'Thou shalt not be tempested, thou shalt not be travailed, thou shalt not be dis-eased'; but he said, 'Thou shalt not be overcome.”

  • Go to Google and look up a song by Rascal Flats called "Movin' On." It really, really helped me a lot after my divorce. must have played it two million times in the first year after the breakup.

  • First of all THANK YOU wise ones of Cafemom. Sadly I look up to you all because I never had a mother myself. Secondly, I am way too embarrassed of the matter to show my face on this one, humiliated for letting it get to me so much. Its because I have something called Adult Attachment Disorder so I am going through these processes simultaneously. My 6 year relationship before this guy was not even this difficult because back then I was still in DENIAL about my attachment disorder. Denial is easier, so I kept latching on to guy after guy. These poor men who have fallen victim to my neediness. Anyway codependent no more my life starts now.
