Yes exactly this. My heart is broken and I am tired, depressed. Even though I still long for new love, I feel I am too tired to care anymore or make serious effort.I have no references but i imagine its no different to when someone you care about dies - you never stop missing them - you just get used to them not being around.
Thanks for your feedback.Have you reached out to support groups? There's sure to be a few in your area - i dont know where you are based but there should be.
The trouble is that by telling yourself that you'll never get over her and that nobody can replace her you're reenforcing the notion that you can't move on.
Maybe try a support group and focus on friendship? And make it about forming new connections rather than replacing old ones.
In the interest of ceasing idolization write down a list of the things you liked about your ex and ask yourself 'What makes her more special than anyone else?'.
Because you might find those traits in someone new and come to the conclusion that your ex wasnt all that.
Don’t know if my reply will ignite hot ashes but you are not the only one here who wonders about the what ifs. I personally do all the time with a few prior relationships. They all as placed in the back of the mind soon as I find someone to date.Thanks for your feedback.
