I I understand what your going through because I have recently gone through simiar experience of online dating and dealing with dissappointment after dissapointment when opening yourself emotionally, which I think comes from having expectation of putting your happiness in another person.
To answer your question, I think you can find lasting happiness in your life if that is what you want and focus. Inner peace and happiness comes from working on the inner world and not outer world.
Hope this makes sense and helps 🙂September 4, 2015 at 4:51 pm #82868
Another thing that really helped was meditating and practicing letting go of the thoughts that cause the anxiety rather than actually acting on the anxiety, and trying to maintain inner peace.September 4, 2015 at 4:41 pm #82867
I completely agree with Anita. I have gone through a similar experience in the past where I struggled with being nice and doing whats best for me. I had texted the ex on his birthday and for me it just prolonged the healing process, because I realized there were some unresolved issues, which might be the case for you. I would focus on healing and focus on your own happiness and enjoying your own life as hard as it may seem, but your strong and can overcome the anxiety. Also, what helped me to heal whenever I was tempted to contact my ex, was to think if contacting him would add any value to my life or bring any sort of happiness and for me the answer was “no”. Another food for thought, why would you want to have all this anxiety and turmoil over someone in your life that broke your trust, and doesn’t respect you? It may sound selfish, but you need to take care of emotional well-being first, maintain your power and continue on the path of self love, so you can attract the right relationships in the future. 🙂
Hope this helps!

Thank you so much for this respond. It really hit home to me that if I do continue to stay in contact, I would just be disrespecting myself. This is exactly what I needed to hear to move forward in the direction in the right direction 🙂
