I am so very sorry. I empathize completely. I’ve no great words of wisdom for you. 🙁
I am so sorry! It’s a horrible situation. May I ask if your husband has had brain trauma/surgery in the past? I’m asking because mine did. Brain tumor. It changed him completely.February 19, 2021 at 5:12 pm in reply to: I’m addicted to nostalgic feelings and it only makes me feel worse, I guess. #374960
Dear miyoid, Not to be dramatic, I had a horrible/violent childhood. I do think back, now and then, but I find due to circumstances it does more harm than good. The fact that you go back to a time that was special, you were loved etc., there’s nothing wrong with that at all. From what I’ve learned (through Buddhism among other things) is we shouldn’t reside there nor in the future. The only thing we have is today, right now. Once I learned that lesson and retooled my thoughts, I felt a whole lot better about everything. I forgave my mom years ago (dad always said she did the best she could) and rarely think of those times. Same with the future. I’m not in very good health (Primary Progressive MS). I cannot go down that road either as I will spin out of control. I hoped what I’ve said makes sense, lol. More importantly, I hope I’ve helped you in at least a tiny way.
Hi Jem, The thing is while men can have casual sex or be “friends with benefits”, women simply do not work that way. We simply are not wired that way (in my humble opinion). Of course you’re offended by his pursuing other women, who wouldn’t be? I’m fairly certain, in his mind, he’s doing nothing wrong. Our hearts don’t work that way. I hope this helps! Good luck to you and never, ever would I judge 🙂
Dear Pritu, I love what you wrote! I’m wondering why the need to label “soulmate” is necessary? In my humble opinion only, the need to label anything can be a game changer at best. The relationship you describe is amazing and sounds like what we all hope for. So I guess my question is why label it? It sounds as if the two of you will be friends forever, and that’s a rare, beautiful thing. If you’re asking advice, mine would be to be grateful for what you have/found. Please don’t muddle yourself with labels as there is absolutely no need. I hope I’ve helped somewhat! 🙂February 19, 2021 at 4:15 pm in reply to: Friend pretended he’s kissing me and took a picture with me while I was asleep #374938
Dear Mango, This is my opinion only. The first word that come to my mind is betrayal. As another poster (Peggy, I believe) stated to cut these people out of your life. I couldn’t’ agree more. I would be absolutely livid! Good luck to you! 🙂
