I've been with this girl for 14 months. She moved in with me and my family to get away from her abusive / neglectful family. We took her in and provided for her the things her family wouldn't even…Continue
"That's right. Get out, and spend time with your family and friends, and give them your attention. Get out of your own head for a while. It will be a relief, and it will stop you from brooding over things in an unhelpful frame of mind. BTW,…"
"First, nothing will make it go away quickly. If you were someone who could get over her in a day, you'd be someone who didn't love deeply. Celebrate the way you miss her -- and hope you don't lose that loving nature.
"I appreciate all the advice and Rob you hit the nail on the head.
It's been a day and it's slightly better. The biggest problem, as my mom even put it, is that she's a habit. Waking up and not seeing her is really hard, as is…"
"As many have said: Embrace the hurt. I've come from a long and painful relationship and somehow I did not let it affect me much. It was so very wrong.... Allow yourself to be miserable and angry. Be angry at the situation. Do whatever…"
"Sorry to hear about your hurt, Bud.
It sounds as though this relationship was doomed from the start. From what you have said about her past, she is likely to have entered your life with problems that needed to be resolved before she was ready for a…"
"Good tips so far. And I have found that handling the emotions head on as opposed to fighting them has truly helped. That, and as others said, time. It's still just hard to let it be when we've been through so much and shared so much. I…"

"For the time being, get angry, cry, listen to music that reminds you. It is going to hurt no matter what. Embrace it for a week or so, don't fight it. Allow yourself some time to deal with it, then set a schedule of what you want to change and…"
"I thought about this after seeing Leah Thompson on Dancing with the Stars. She was hot thirty years ago and still hot today. It doesn't seem to even be a matter of looking "young." For me, posture and demeanor play a…"
"I was surprised to read that Jonathan Edwards, who preached Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God in monotone, actually was ok with congregants getting an emotional response in church, and then that waning by Monday. He was realistic. If…"
"I didn't know that about the calf. Interesting.
Damn. A half-gallon or a gallon a day is a lot. My wife grocery shops for two weeks at a time. She'd have to buy 10-15 gallons of milk. I drink a glass or two a…"
"Thought you had. Not exactly an answer, though.
Is there a scripture you're basing that on? I don't think emotion is the purpose at all. Emotion may be a byproduct, particularly for the more emotional. But,…"
"So many great cigars out there, and some of the smaller companies are releasing some top notch stuff. I'd argue that despite the Cuban cigar embargo, we are in a golden era for cigars.
When possible, buy small samplers and see what you…"
