  • Hi I'm sorry you're in a bad place right now.

    The anger will pass, you need to find a way to not engage with it.

    If left unchecked anger is the fuel that breeds resentment and bitterness. In the past when I've felt anger rising I try and mentally acknowledge it and try and not engage with it. Try and think of something else, it's hard but it gets easier.

    Also find an outlet, for me I just went to the gym sometimes hit a punching bag :)

    You will need to forgive, it is a cliché I know. You will be doing it for yourself though who wants to carry all that anger around with them? I'm not I can tell you how to forgive it's different for everyone but you have to actively want to forgive I guess.

    All the best.

  • Are you still talking to him? If you are, then you'll never get over it. Time will heal. I would stay out of any relationships for a while. Maybe a good 6 months to a year. Tell every guy that you meet "no" until you heal.

  • i am right there with you! It sucks, its unfair, and we don't deserve this. There is no way I can forgive my ex for hurting me. NO freaking way. I don't even know what to tell you to get over it because I don't know how to get over it myself.

    I wanted to say that your not alone though. Just try not to let him know you feel this way because then he wins. This is the mistake I made. I let my ex know (not how angry I was) but how hurt I was. and he told me how happy he was (what a jerk!). so yeah...if you figure out a way to let go of the anger and stuff, let me know

    • thanks for empathizing... I think its just the love in your heart which turns into resentment when the other person does not reciprocate the way we want him/her

      my anger was so intense today...i thot my head would burst... I just wrote a mail to my ex...a short mail in which I wrote nice things about our relationship..and that I know its over and I forgive everything said or done...a and ended the mail in a nice note...

      and I am feeling much better now.
