  • It's my understanding that we don't let it in bc we think we don't deserve it. You will have to train your brain to think differently by repeatedly telling yourself you deserve happiness then that will allow yourself to believe that you do deserve happiness. If you think it, it will happen.

  • Happiness comes from within. You MUST find your own happiness, and not rely on anyone to make you happy. Truth be told, no one can make you happy. Look inside yourself and figure out why you are so unhappy and how you can learn to let go of the hurt and learn to be happy again.

  • i am going thru the exact same thing. i left my xh almost a year b4 i started dating again. i am now dating a wonderfull man...he is soo sweet and patient and understanding. treats me like a queen..and adores my kids...but when we first started dating i was like ok what is the catch...i was unintentionally hold what my xh did against my new so. it is soo hard to let go and let your gaurd down i really truely know. but if he is a s good as u say he is he will be patient. it takes time to mend a heart. i tried to give myself enough time to heal. i wanted to rediscover myself and who i was as an individual again.
