Hello Gentlemen, 

Recently my girlfriend of 2 years (known her for 3) has told me she can not reciprocate the love that I give to her. I am trying to keep a good state of mind about it and trying to keep it together. I put this post where I did because my and my girlfriend are both very Catholic. She and I are both on our summer break and we serve as Eucharistic ministers. but since she told me what she told me, I am not quite sure what to do. I do not want to be mad or angry at her so I am just trying to get advice on what to do.

Let your grief and anger out in whatever healthy ways you can (e.g. cry, exercise, write).  It's okay to feel these things.  I've been there; it gets easier with time, but you can't hold it back.  

Sorry, ND.  Isaiah 55:8-9.

Thanks for the support Timothy. If I may why is it that you chose those verses from Isaiah, like I think it is very good for what I am going through. What I mean is what is your thought process behind picking it. 

I don't know what you've been through with your ex (sorry if that stings), but with me, I was hoping to marry mine.  (That obviously didn't happen.)  With this being said, I try to keep in mind that God sees things in a way none of us can, which includes his allowing us freedom and a will.  He wouldn't have allowed her to reject me if He didn't know it was good for me.  It has actually been a huge blessing that we aren't together, though I could not see it at the time.  

I was hoping to marry mine too. 

Getting angry is perfectly fine. Becoming mean with that anger isnt.

Yeah that is what I would like to not happen, but I find it to easy to slip into being mean when anger gets involved. 

A peace. I am wounded but I am in a lot better shape than I thought I would be thanks be to God. We had a chat a few hours ago and came to an understanding and at least for me I got closure which is something that I wanted more than feeling better.

Required Reading

There's a similar thread right now but it's bizarre and spammy. So. What, in your opinion, is required reading to be part of the human race? What is absolutely essential, whether it be philosophy, history, religion, or even classic fiction or poetry?See More
