  • Wait sucks but really that's all you can do. I think it's normal once you're out of a situation like that to see all the good and forget about the bad. Don't forget though! Remembering WHY you left and reminding yourself about that will help some when you start to feel lonely or miss him. It helps to have somebody to vent to about it as well. My situation with my ex was similar and I had feelings for him for years after I left, gradually over time they lessened and lessened until one day I realized I didn't miss him any more. I still care but I'm happy with my life now and I know I'm better off without him and it doesn't hurt any more.

  • Well... he was your Husband, maybe it was a mistake b/c you still love him. Sometimes it just takes time to realize the good and not all the bad. Does he feel the same way or is he over it? If he does, maybe give it another try b4 it's too late. Maybe a long break was what you needed.. you could start "dating" again and hold off on the divorce

  • his girlfriend is pregnant so no there is no chance of us getting back together. we were supposed to be taking a break for year. due to alot of issues. and then after that decide what to do. i left him for cheating and doing drugs. i loved him and still do very much and didnt want to leave but had to do what was best for my kids. this is our first holiday season with out him and our family traditions we had started. ie ginger bread houses. putting up our tree we took years to get just the way we wanted. i sound so bitter dont i? i really am not. i mean i am the one who left. how do i get over it?
