  • I just find a new man, but that's probably not the right way but it helps.

  • Think about what you deserve as
    a good person, think about how you want to be appreciated and
    treated good..
    Start liking if not loving yourself more.
    Because when you love yourself you already know what you deserve.

  • Kustom, Thanks for the advice. I will soon be starting a new job so I think that will help. What other things can I do. I hate being alone and not much money to do anything either. Not many friends.

  • by being strong and refusing to let him back in your life and finding out why you feel you have to settle for a man you know is not the kind of man you deserve. make a list of what you want in a man and don't accept anything less. Also, try dating outside of your "type" that's what worked for me.

  • Here is the list:

    Has a bad temper
    Has abused me
    Lives at mommies and he is 33 and always has.
    He doesn't care about my feelings, even in bed.
    Seems like I have to walk around on egg shells when he is around, always looking over my shoulder.
    Has a drinking problem.
    Doesn't seem like he wants to get a job.
    Have been told from his aunt he has abused all of his girlfriends.
    He has destroyed my phone
    Tryed to break into my house.

    OK I could go on and on, so why the hell would i want him?????? Thanks everyone!!!

  • Focus on his negative qualities and why you left him. It can be depressing but it makes it a lot easier to completely stop thinking about him when you can only think of negative things. Just always remind yourself why you are no longer with him and embrace your freedom.
