  • The more you say "I can't get over him... I was head over heels...talking to him still makes me happy" the more that all becomes true. Make a written list of the crappy ways he has behaved - copy it several times -put one in the car, one next to the ph, one over the kitchen sink. Be deadly honest with yourself.
    Now whenever you find yourself missing him, or thinking sweetly about him, walk to the nearest list & read it aloud. You need to retrain your brain to see him as a crap father - let me put it this way ( please don't be offended) why do you still feel happy to talk to a man who treats your kids like crap? Maybe if you start to reword that to be - I get a false sense of security when I talk to him. I forget what a pig he is when I talk to him, He is charming but he is still a crap father. Talk to yourself & be honest with yourself AND apart from talking about the children, DON'T talk to him. He's not good for your kids

  • It is normal. I really dont want to go into much detail but lets just say I went through an absolute heck of a time with him my ex... and I STILL two years later miss the heck out of him.. :( You just have to grow, understand he is past and start working on your heart to see the future and put the past where it belongs... gone...

  • you "cant" get over him because YOU dont want to. its a choice. you are CHOOSING to THINK you love him. you know he is worthless. my question would be, why do you feel you deserve that? instead of love with someone more deserving?

  • I think you need therapy. Not trying to be mean, but no, it's NOT normal.

  • Sorry but that's not love. It's more of relationship addiction and codependence. There is a book called How to Fall Out of Love (forgot the author) but it's for people who think they are in love and can't get over their ex. It's an easy read and you can just read the chapters that pertain to your situation if you want.
