Llon Posted June 23, 2008 Share Posted June 23, 2008 Hello folks. It has been almost 11 months since my breakup and there has been NC for the entire time. I was just reading through the threads and noticed that I do not recognize any of the names on here. That just goes to show that this is a relatively short process, as I used to use it as a crutch multiple times daily. I have perused the postings from time to time over the months and notice that people do not seem to stay here for long. That is a good sign. To the newbies here, I want to assure you that things do get better. You probably feel like your life is not much worth living right now, but trust me, I was there once and there is light at the end of the tunnel. After having a 15 year relationship ended, I know the dark feeling that follows you. It will not last forever, but it also will not go away immediately. It happens slowly, perhaps painfully slowly. Rest assured that within a year, you will be back up and kicking. If I, after 15 years, can get back into the swing, you can too. It has been a long road, with many tears and long nights, but I can say with certainty that I am 500 percent better off emotionally than I was 10 months ago. Sure, I still think of her, but she does not consume me like she used to. I am able to deal with the reality of losing her, to the point that I hope that she is doing well and is happy in her life, with or without another guy. Hang in there, it gets better. NC is the key. Best wishes. Link to comment
