Skeptic76 Posted December 9, 2019 Share Posted December 9, 2019 Well, it’s been a few months since I broke up with my ex. It’s definitely getting better, but today was a rough one. I deleted her number last month so I can’t text or call and that probably saved her and myself from another embarrassing “reach out” today 😂 I had occasion to scroll back through the photos on my phone this morning and saw a bunch of her and us and our kids together and it just GOT me. (I subsequently spent a couple of hours exporting almost 6k photos/videos off my phone and onto my PC so I wouldn’t accidentally see them...) In the meantime I was just goin’ through it all day today, in a low background kind of way that forced me to stay really busy or I was going to indulge the sh*te out of some self-pity. Now it’s the end of the day and I’m in bed just sitting with some powerful emotion. Thanks for letting me vent to you, anonymous friend. I can see that over the past several months things are definitely getting better. I’ve been on several dates, I’ve continued to make healthy choices for myself and take actions to maintain/improve a rich, full life for my kids & myself. I still think about my ex every day but most days it’s a quick memory and sometimes even a little smile for the good times. That’s it, I just stay engaged in what I’m doing at the moment and let it go. But sometimes my heart has a way of hijacking my train of thought and running that sucker off the rails...today was that train wreck kind of day, heh. Link to comment
