Still miss her every moment and don’t know how to move on while still feeling so deeply anout her. This feels more painful than the break up of my marriage. Perhaps, because it is so fresh and so very frustrating. Feeling rather alone and incomplete.December 21, 2016 at 11:37 am #123223
Thanks again Anita . At least I am young at and feeling a bit juvenile handling a broken heart . Age seems inconsequential at point in my life. I appreciate your kind wishes and hopefully time will hasten the healing.

This breskup has rocked me to my very core. I can’t get her out of my mind snd it’s eating me up inside. I kmow what anxiety feels like and it’s raised its ugly head once again and I’m doing my best to cope and mend a broken heart.
I can’t concentrate on anything else and wander aimlessly
trying to distract myself. If time truly heals then I need a time warp intervention
Just curious, why do you mention my age ?
Thanks Anita for your timely responses . I hate being messed upDecember 20, 2016 at 11:43 am #123117
By “chill” I simply meant that it might be best not to pursue another “relationship” right away.February 28, 2014 at 5:16 pm #52034
Just read your kind words again and again. What strikes me ,in your eloquence, is that it is better to be alone and feeling loneliness than to be alone and lonely in the company of the wrong person . It has become my mantra and gets me through the day. Thanks!February 4, 2014 at 7:05 pm #50304
I have also experienced the hurricane and then into the”eye” and out again. Like any storm there is peaceful calm on the other side. Now I have to weather the calm ! Thanks for kind and eloquent words and encouragement without which I would feel oddly unique.

I actually sent you an email a while ago thinking it went through but apparently responses need to be accomplished in this format. I so dearly appreciate your kind words and sentiment and I tend to agree with you regarding the “soulmate” that mysteriously awaits us out there somewhere. I don’t think that person exists.Like you I have serious doubts that I could pursue a meaningful long relationship . Perhaps that’s because I find myself wandering physically and emotionally as if looking for me and becoming whole and totally functioning. Until I find that peace and contentment I can’t share “me” with another. Thank you for your healing thoughts . If you feel like offering more of your experience and sharing the wisdom you now embrace please don’t hesitate to be “in touch”.
All the best,

I found your response to Jeff’s experience so insightful since I find myself in the midst of a very similar life event.
I was surprised to discover your age (77) since I am in my 66th year on this planet and navigating a separation as well. Any more words of wisdom and comfort would be appreciated.
All the best,

I’d like to thank both Mark and Lindsay for your kind words and the compassion with which they were expressed. I find solace and “belonging” whenever I need uplifting and a sense of empathy in reading other life stories and how we struggle to make sense of it all. I yearn for the healing to take hold and perhaps , in that endeavor, find that soulmate I wasn’t “expecting.
