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…"
"Your words remind me exactly of this song. Sometimes a sad song is healing.
Feeling this way happens after breakups. I know it did for me. In terms of hard advice, one thing you have to realize is that she's an adult and will make her own…"
"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…"
"We do have that problem, that people are loyal to persons rather than to principles, at times, and I had an awful experience of public humiliation I won't go into here, in my community. But not in my I-group. I made a complaint…"
"It's a shame as I loved the initiation. I am going to attend another mens groups and hope that maybe this will be a more supportive initiation for me. I was very keen on MKP and thought before PIT that I had found the supportive group of men…"
I think those groups your discussing are okay. Our western society limits men's self expression where showing physical affection to other men or baring one's body is not always seen as proper. Therefore some men…"
"I believe that a relationship does work if you really want it to work. I am married for one and a half years now, but know my wife and am together with her as a couple for more than 10 years. And this works very well.
My parents also got divorced.…"
"I was let down as the trainer did not remember me or my journey. He was very powerful and everyone was subservient to him. He put me in my place and I realised mkp was not open to negative feelings toward him or the processes. Kindness and care was…"
