Most Helpful Girl
I feel your loss, i dated my ex for 9 years, drugs, cheating and im still hurt because you spent so long together and for me its like i lost a sibling, i lost a connection i had with someone for years. And there is the regret too, the years wasted, it feels like a mistake, and we have a child together so i always feel guilty.
I try to remember that we had good times but grew apart and that ill find someone new one day, but its important to heal before pursuing a new relationship, one month for each year i heard its good to clear your thoughts and figure out who you are where you went wrong, and just find yourself enjoy being single because its rare and its a really good time to connect with yourself.
i cried for 2 months but im on month 4 and going strong.
