All very good advice, guys. And it’s interesting…this person has co-dependency issues that I didn’t know about until the very end, which is what resulted in our parting ways. I’ve never been in a relationship so I definitely don’t see myself as having those issues. But again, for some reason, it’s hard for me to let go of this one because it was life-changing. I guess I have to try to see that as a positive thing. I also never thought I had issues with self-love, so I’m not sure where these awful thoughts are stemming from, the ones that say I obviously meant nothing to her since she said she wants to be close friends. Because like you say, John, that debases the experience. But I also have to try to remind myself that’s her co-dependency talking.
Anyways…I am still struggling with the realization that she is coming home for a few short weeks before jetting off forever. I think I just have to take it day by day.
