...'It's been 5 months' and Still Counting...
It's hard to know here, dear, with a broken heart, just how long it will... Kill me. And with laying in bed after the lights go out at the end of each day, it's the Worse time because you have all of these thoughts in your head that are Not Sugar plums but Instead... Makes it hard to sleep.
With licking your war wounds, you have to be strong. Focus on You More and if you have to, slowly begin your own beguine again with going out with some friends and socializing a bit.
I am not going to lie to you, it may take more months, even longer. It took me 7 Long years to get over My First Love and with every Date, I compared my Past to Every mate. Finally, I got my closure before he tied the knot, and was free then to go on with my life because I realized it wasn't the same anymore and neither was I.
Yes, nights are the roughest, you may even get some anxiety and if this happens... Get out out of bed, walk around a bit around the house to stretch your legs and gets something to wet your whistle.
Eventually it does get easier with time so let It be on your side and hopefully your best shot in the dark for now.
Good luck. xx
