gooseduck Posted August 20, 2019 Share Posted August 20, 2019 I am so glad to see this forum. I could use some support during this hard time. I am going through a breakup now, its only been a few weeks and I can see that we are not the right pairing, but my grief is large, as it is everytime I go through a breakup. This one is harder not because of the man I loved, but because I am 39 turning 40 soon and at this age, having gone through way too many breakups including a divorce, I have never felt so afraid. I am meditating many times a day and embracing what I am feeling, but I am scared this is my last chance. it was a very loving relationship but we seem to want differnet things in life, but ultimately when it got strained, he gave up on me and on us and now I see, on himself. I know I need a stronger human in my life, but I could use some support in knowing that people find love after their mid 30s and into their 40s. I am sad bc this was probably my last chance with children, but that i am ok with. I am more upset that when I have to date again, Ill have to enter swipe culture of online dating and men seeing women my age as old news. I am trying to stay positive but also stay with my emotions to work through them, but feeling very sad about being so old and needing to date in the future. Really could use some wisdom and encouragement. I am doing the hard work and I know after all of this healing, I will be a stronger, braver, more enlightened person for it, but while in the storm, I feel pretty depressed by it today. thank you for the words in advance, you might be saving me today from despair. I am just in so much pain. Link to comment
